FRAXEL (C02) LASER

What is Fraxel Laser?

 

Fraxel Laser is as Co2 laser that can be adjusted to various levels of intensity to treat minor to severe skin conditions. Fraxel Laser also has the benefit of minimal down time and post recovery care.

 

Fraxel works by creating microscopic holes in the skin layers and a slight burn similar to sunburn on the top layer to force that area to peel. Once the area starts to peel similar to sunburn new skin cells start to grow and regenerate. 

Laser treatments normally require multiple sessions as each session destroys the old bad skin cells to allow new cells to grow. For those looking for tattoo and scar removal the Fraxel will work in the same way.

 

For growth removal procedures the laser acts like a knife safely cutting the growth leaving a smooth area for cells to produce a new layer of skin.
