Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation reduces the effects of time on the skin, uncovering more youthful, radiant skin. Clinical studies have proven that the Fraxel is the gold standard, is less painful than other similar treatments, takes less time, is less costly, and, most importantly, is safe for the removal of wrinkles and scars. When combined with the Zimmer air-cooling system, the treatment feels like a series of small rubber band snaps.
How Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation Works
Through precise thermal manipulation of the epidermal and dermal tissue, Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation remodels collagen through the papillary dermis to promote collagen production and the production of new and beautiful skin. This laser is great for the following treatment areas:
- Face: surface wrinkles, brown spots, pigmentation, roughness, acne scars
- Face, Neck & Chest: acne scars
- Neck: wrinkles and pigmentation
- Chest: sun damage, wrinkles, freckles, brown spots
- Hands: age spots, weathered appearance
- Arms: age spots, rough skin, actinic keratoses
- Hips & Abdomen: stretch marks
The Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation Consultation
Every patient requires a complimentary, no-obligation consultation with Venessa prior to receiving any laser treatments. During the consultation, she will examine your skin type, tone, and texture and discuss your desired results. We will review your medical history to ensure you're a good candidate for treatment and can safely receive lasers. Once we determine you can safely receive Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation and that it's the right treatment for your unique needs, we'll get you started with a treatment series for best results.
The Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Prior to treatment, Venessa will apply a topical numbing cream and allow one hour for it to activate. This allows you to feel more comfortable during the Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation procedure. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly using our signature Gentle Cleanser from ZO Skin Health. Venessa will then give you special protective eyewear that will protect your eyesight from the beam of light will begin your treatment. The procedure is relatively painless and takes about 15-20 minutes to conduct. It is safe for all skin types. Following treatment, you will receive post-care instructions and schedule you for a follow-up treatment.

What is the Fraxel Laser?
Fraxel is a laser used to treat damaged and aging skin by harmlessly penetrating the outer layer of skin, but only selectively targeting the bad skin. This method protects the skin from enduring too much damage at once and eliminates much of the downtime associated with, for example, the CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment.
Is Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation FDA-approved?
The Fraxel Laser has received FDA clearances for skin resurfacing procedures; the photocoagulation of pigmented lesions, such as lentigos (age spots); solar lentigos (sun spots) and dyschromia; treatment of periorbital wrinkles; and for dermatological conditions requiring the coagulation of soft tissue. It is also approved for the treatment of scars and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation?
Wrinkles, poor texture, large pores, sun spots, brown spots, scars, melasma, and uneven pigmentation can be treated successfully with the Fraxel laser. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about two to three months
How many treatments will I need?
We recommend between 3–5 treatments for optimal results.
What are the side effects of Fraxel?
Side effects are minimal and usually limited to a sunburn-like redness which disappears in about 24 hours. Within 24 hours, new epidermal skin will develop and your skin will have a bronze appearance which can last from three days up to two weeks depending on what level of treatment you have received. As the new epidermal tissue replaces the damaged tissue, your skin will flake off. Moisturizer can counteract some of the flaking effect. We also offer top-of-the-line post-procedure skin products for purchase here in the office that can significantly help your healing process.
When can I go back to work?
Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after treatment or the next day.
Can I wear makeup or shave after Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation?
You may apply makeup or shave soon after treatment. However, we recommend that you also use sunscreen under your cosmetics to protect your fresh skin from sun damage.
What can I do to protect my new skin following my Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
Absolutely be sure to wear at least SPF-30 sunscreen and apply twice a day. You must completely avoid the sun and take extra care to protect your skin from more damage.
How Much Does Fraxel Skin Rejuvenation cost?
