What is Fraxel Laser Treatment?  

Fraxel laser resurfacing is a non-invasive and microscopic laser that uses two frequencies to penetrate deep layers of your skin, triggering your body’s natural healing process. When your body heals itself, it produces more collagen—the protein responsible for the structure and strength of youthful skin. The treatment also bumps up elastin levels, which is what gives young skin a smooth and even texture. 


How does Fraxel Laser Work?

Fractional CO2 Laser Treatments work by damaging the skin in a controlled manner. It has the ability to target damaged skin tissues and leave the surrounding skin untouched. Fractional lasers can be done on the face and body.   

Fraxel works by producing thousands of tiny deep microscopic columns in the skin which are referred to as microscopic treatment zones (MTZ). These tiny treatment zones are surrounded by uninjured tissue. In other words, only a fraction of the skin is targeted, therefore, the skin is left intact which allows for quick wound healing. This treatment results in rapid re-epithelialization (resurfacing), eliminating old epidermal pigmented cells, while penetrating the deeper dermis dramatically reducing visible scarring or wrinkles.  

Fraxel helps stimulate elastin fibers and collagen in your skin, leading to fresher, tighter and younger-looking skin. Fraxel can help: 

  • Improving skin’s texture and tone 
  • Shrinking the size of pores 
  • Erasing age spots/brown spots 
  • Smoothing wrinkles around the eyes 
  • Smoothing acne scars  
  • Rejuvenating skin on the neck, chest and hands 


How many treatments are recommended?

The number of treatments required depends on several factors, including the extent of wrinkles, scarring and sun damage that you have. This will be best determined at the time of the consultation. 

The number of treatments recommended is anywhere between 3 to 6 sessions depending on your skin concern and the severity of the condition. Normally treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart and optimal results are visible in approximately 2-3 months post-treatment. 


Are there any complications?

Due to the controlled and predictable nature of this laser, side effects are very uncommon. As with any laser there are the risks of temporary or permanent discoloration, scarring, bruising, etc., but with the Fraxel laser, these are very remote. The laser can be used in all skin types, but it is used with more caution in patients with the darkest skin types.



You will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour after treatment and then virtually no discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. New epidermal skin develops within 24 hours. The process of skin repair involves: 

Bronzing: Your skin will have a bronze appearance that lasts anywhere from three to fourteen days, depending on the treatment level. 

Flaking: Your skin will naturally and vigorously exfoliate as the reorganized epidermal skin replaces dead tissue. Flaking is similar to that of minor sunburn, without the associated pain. Use of a moisturizer will mask the appearance of flaking. 

Sunblock: Use sunblock at least twice daily to protect your skin from sun exposure during the healing phase and for several months after treatment. Our product specialists can recommend a sunblock appropriate for post-Fraxel treatment. For added protection from sunlight, use wide-brimmed hats. 

Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues that have been affected by fractional laser treatment producing beneficial changes associated with a healthy appearance of your skin.
