Fraxel Treatment | San Francisco

What is Fraxel®?

Fraxel® uses advanced light technology to stimulate collagen production in the top layers of the skin, resulting in skin resurfacing. This technology works with your bodies natural cell cycle, therefore results may take up to 1-3 weeks to appear. Fraxel® can improve the appearance of the following:

  • Wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Acne scarring
  • Pigmentation

This laser can also be used to help repair signs of precancerous lesions, by activating your own immune system to produce new healthy cells.

Benefits of Fraxel® Treatment

The natural aging process of the skin is something that most of us try to avoid. Now, with Fraxel® we can actively rejuvenate without the significant down time of plastic surgery. Fraxel® has both ablative and non-ablative capabilities, both of which can improve skin tone and texture. This laser procedure is great for anyone who wants to look younger without the hassle of surgery. Fraxel treatment is non-invasive and fits into any lifestyle. With it's simplicity, this treatment is more effective than creams and lotions adequately help repair signs of aging.

What to expect?

We topically numb each patient for 60-90 minutes prior to performing the laser treatment, which takes anywhere from 10-40 min depending on the size of the area. You should expect 5-7 days of healing time for your skin to return to a normal state. It is important to protect the treated area after the procedure with a proper moisturizer and SPF. Our care team will go over the best recommended products for use after treatment. If you have any specific questions, feel free to call either of our two offices.
