Overview of Fraxel Lasers

Fraxel is the original, gold-standard laser using fractional technology. It’s a great alternative to laser skin resurfacing2 which is older technology with longer downtime. Therefore, when Dr. Rokhsar treats your skin with Fraxel, you will experience significant improvements.

The lasers treat sun spots, skin tone, texture, and signs of aging on many skin types. Fraxel initiates the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthier tissue that replaces skin imperfections. It also remodels the collagen and boosts elastin to tighten the skin’s structure.

In NYC, Fraxel is used for the face and neck, as well as other areas of the body, mostly the hands or chest. The main skin conditions we treat with Fraxel are:

  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Melasma
  • Acne scars
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Unsmooth skin texture
  • Sunspots and sun damage

Benefits of Fraxel Laser in NYC

The Fraxel family of lasers creates tiny areas of mico-damage to certain skin layers. This stimulation causes skin cells to repair and generate firm, youthful skin tissue.

There are several advantages to fractional resurfacing with the Fraxel™3 Dual laser over older, fully ablative CO2 lasers.

These benefits include:

  • Faster and easier recovery – a few days instead of two weeks
  • Minimal discomfort compared with fully ablative CO2 lasers
  • Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
  • FDA-cleared4 to treat the face, neck, chest, and hands
  • It can rejuvenate lower eyelids
  • Fewer side-effects

Dr. Rokhsar’s Fraxel Laser Devices

Dr. Rokhsar treats patients with the full line of Fraxel. In New York and in Long Island, he has the Fraxel Dual laser, Repair, and Restore lasers.

Fraxel Dual is a non-ablative laser, which is effective in treating hyperpigmentation, brown spots, sun damage, sun exposure, and melasma. It combines two wavelengths for best skin rejuvenation results. However, multiple treatments are needed.

The Dual laser system has an attached cooling effect to make treatment more comfortable with consistent and accurate cooling. The laser session takes about 15 minutes.

Fraxel Repair is a more powerful, fractional CO2 ablative laser. Dr. Rokhsar targets very small areas and removes the patient’s epidermis (the outer layer of skin) so new skin can replace it.

This means more post-treatment redness, scaling, peeling, and swelling. However, this laser also has unparalleled, dramatic skin rejuvenation results after just one session.

Fraxel Restore is non-ablative. It is included in the Fraxel Dual device. The Restore Fraxel laser does not remove any tissue and feels like a hot stone massage.

There is less recovery time with Restore. After each session, patients experience less peeling, redness, and swelling.

During your consultation, Dr. Rokhsar helps you determine which is the best Fraxel laser for your goals. Our patients usually see maximum results over time. Because the skin continues to naturally repair itself with new collagen production, which is the elasticity protein that structures the skin, results will be gradual and the skin will continue to improve over the following weeks and months.

FAQ

How much does Fraxel Laser cost?

Your total cost for a series of Fraxel Laser® treatments depends on which area of the body we treat. Price factors include the treatment area and how many sessions we will do.

The cost of your initial Fraxel consultation at our NYC or LI offices can be a credit towards your Fraxel treatment.

How long do Fraxel laser results last?

Results may vary according to your skin’s condition, and age. However, you can expect them to last for several years. Within weeks of your final treatment, you will have a more even skin tone.

Your skin will also look brighter and more youthful. Over time, the deeper layers of your dermis will continue healing. Therefore providing additional improvements to the quality of your skin.

Is Fraxel laser painful?

While some patients say that the procedure is not painful at all, you may experience minor discomfort during the treatment. The amount of pain you experience will depend on your pain tolerance.

However, patients most commonly describe it as a slight stinging sensation. Before your procedure, we first apply numbing cream or topical anesthetic to make your session comfortable.

Can Fraxel be used on the body?

Fraxel can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs. While Fraxel can be applied to other areas of the body, Dr. Rokhsar may recommend a different treatment option that works better for you.

What is recovery like?

You may look like you have sunburn in the days to follow. It is important to keep the skin moist and to use sunscreen. By decreasing salt intake, drinking more water, and sleeping at an angle you can also help speed up the healing process.

However, unlike more intense laser treatments, Fraxel Restore Dual requires minimal, quick recovery.

Which wavelengths does the Fraxel Dual use?

The Fraxel Dual contains two wavelengths. The lasers use the traditional non-ablative 1550mm Erbium fiber laser to penetrate deep into the tissue. The addition of the 1927mm Thulium fiber laser offers superficial or cosmetic treatment as well.

This benefit results in uneven pigment fading more quickly. Often termed the “microscopic facelift,” these lasers work together to create tiny wounds in the deepest layers of the skin. And the body naturally refreshes and rebuilds the skin. This effect heals collagen and elastin, resurfacing skin from the inside out.
