The Fraxel laser treats the skin with multiple, microscopic bursts of laser energy that is “fractionated” like pixels on a computer screen. These multiple micro-treatments create “microscopic thermal zones” that cause a change in collagen and elastin over time and a series of treatments. It is a very controlled process. With each treatment, there are microscopic islands of untreated skin that allow for a fast healing process. MDLSV was among the first to begin using the blue-dye Fraxel in 2004. In 2007, we upgraded to the Fraxel SR1500 – a major upgrade. No more blue dye and the treatments are more effective with less discomfort*. Wrinkles, sun damage, scars, and pigmentation can be improved with a series of 4 to 5 treatments spaced a few weeks apart. Besides the face, larger body areas such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands can be treated. Redness and peeling usually last 3 to 5 days.
