Fraxel Q & A

What is Fraxel laser technology?

Fraxel laser technology is the first non-ablative, fractional skin resurfacing treatment that improves the texture, tone, and radiance of sun-damaged, aging, and scarred skin. It’s a non-surgical way to achieve younger-looking skin without needles, excisions, or extended downtime.

The Fraxel laser works by targeting aging or sun-damaged skin with lasers that penetrate deep into targeted tissues. Doing so boosts collagen production, stimulates cell regeneration, and resurfaces your skin.

What are the benefits of Fraxel laser treatment?

Some of the many benefits associated with Fraxel laser treatment include reductions in:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Surgical scars
  • Acne scars
  • Melasma 
  • Age spots
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Actinic keratosis

Fraxel laser treatment improves your skin’s tone and texture, giving you the beautiful, younger-looking skin you desire without any downtime.

Is Fraxel laser treatment right for me?

To find out if you’re a candidate for Fraxel laser treatment, your dermatologist reviews your medical history and examines your skin in problem areas. They discuss your desired results and customize an anti-aging regimen that best matches your unique needs.

What should I expect during the procedure?

When you arrive at Integrated Dermatology of Brookline for Fraxel laser treatment, you rest in a comfortable chair. Your specialist cleans your skin and applies topical anesthetic ointment to numb the treatment area. 

They apply a handheld device to your skin to emit laser energy into targeted areas without damaging surrounding tissues. This part of the procedure might last 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

What happens after Fraxel laser treatment?

After Fraxel treatment, your skin might be a little bit red and sore or feel like a mild sunburn. Protect your skin from the sun using sunscreen or protective clothing. 

Your dermatologist might recommend you complete 3-5 treatment sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart to achieve the most effective outcome. While the results are immediate, they continue to improve over time.

Don’t live with imperfect or aging skin when simple treatments available at Integrated Dermatology of Brookline can produce the vibrant, younger-looking skin you deserve. Call the office for an appointment or book online today.
