Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS Fraxel® SR Laser Resurfacing?
Fraxel® SR Laser is a revolutionary approach to all laser resurfacing procedures. It is used to treat wrinkles, age spots, and melasma from years of accumulated sun-damaged skin. It can treat areas on the face , including around the lips and eyes, and body parts including neck, arms , and hands. It can also be used for acne scars. (Fraxel is not for Active acne breakouts, which we can treat with our IPL/Acne Triple Package) There is no cutting of the skin, so patients can achieve the same positive effects of ablative laser procedures (CO2 and Erbium lasers) and deep chemical peels without the associated “downtime” or potential side effects. There is NO peeling or flaking of skin. We also offer lighter treatment options called mini fraxel, and fraxel facials. More info below*
WHAT is The Difference between Fraxel and Fractional CO2 (aka Mixto)?
The scientific answer is the Fraxel is an erbium laser, whereas the Fractional CO2 is a CO2 laser. They have different wavelengths. For layman's terms it is best to think of the fractional CO2 as a more aggressive treatment , therefore 1-2 sessions are all that is required with 4-5 days downtime. The regular Fraxel usually requires 3-5 sessions with 1-2 days downtime. Darker skin types are best treated with the regular fraxel , whereas lighter skin can be more aggressively treated with Fractional CO2.*
WHAT IS A FRAXEL FACIAL? $325
A microdermabrasion followed by a 5 minute light exfoliating with Fraxel laser. Treatment time is 30 minutes done for exfoliation, skin cell turnover , tone, texture and glowing complexion. Performed to enhance results of microdermabrasion. No downtime, no topical anesthesia required, very mild stinging sensation may occur during the active fraxel time. A good skin maintenance treatment. May feel like a mild sunburn for 30 minutes to 1 hour after the treatment. You can return to your daily routine immediately afterwards. Please note this is not a full fraxel treatment . Not recommended if your goal is for wrinkle improvement, discoloration or acne scaring. Pre treatment requirements : no recently tanned skin , avoid any other exfoliation treatments ( such as peels, laser) 1 week prior to treatment, post care use mild cleanser and sunscreen. $325/session.
