Men and women who travel from Ontario cities like Toronto and Thornhill to visit my dermatology practice often have questions about the various lasers we use. One of these high-tech devices, the Fraxel laser, has received a fair amount of media attention lately, although the technology has been around for more than a decade.
The Fraxel family of lasers allows us to achieve safe, nonsurgical skin rejuvenation. The laser revitalizes the skin by penetrating the surface to address both superficial and deeper issues. Fraxel has gained popularity on the celebrity circuit, with celebs such as Courteney Cox publicly singing its praises as a revolutionary anti-aging treatment.
Fraxel reduces wrinkles, scars, brown spots and other blemishes by penetrating the skin in a pattern of very fine, pinpoint microchannels. Since each column is surrounded by untouched tissue, the treatment is gentler than a full-blown ablative laser treatment. This fractional laser therapy stimulates collagen production and keeps recovery time to a minimum. We can control the intensity of the laser to respond to your specific skin care issues.
You don’t need to be a celebrity to give Fraxel a try. Find out for yourself why this advanced device has retained its incredible popularity for 10 years.
