Does Fraxel Laser Therapy Really Work?

The short answer is a resounding, yes. Fraxel Laser Therapy has been changing lives since its introduction in 2004. During that time, dermatologists and technicians have seen numerous technologies introduced into the general marketplace and an expansion of applications for the therapy. Various skin concerns are being addressed and corrected, most notably the reduction of fine lines, scarring, sun damage, and skin pigmentation.

When addressing the signs of aging, a significant point to note is that while the effects are corrective and noticeable, they are not overly dramatic, creating a more natural enhancement.

What is Fraxel Laser Therapy?

Treatment is a fractional treatment that produces thousands of deep, tiny columns in your skin, called microthermal treatment zones. By creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas well beneath the outermost epidermal layer of skin. Fraxel Laser treatments will trigger the body’s natural healing process, thus accelerating the production of collagen and new healthy skin cells.

Fraxel is a non-invasive laser therapy providing a wide assortment of treatment options and approaches, all customized to a patient’s unique considerations. The treatment recovery time is minimal, and the cost approachable.
