Dr. Rokhsar is instrumental in the development of protocols for the treatment of a variety of conditions with fractional resurfacing and the Fraxel laser.

Dr. Rokhsar is regarded as an international authority on the use of the Fraxel laser for treatment of wrinkles, scars, sun damage, pigmentation, stretch marks, and many other conditions.
What is Fraxel?
Fraxel treatments in NYC offer advanced Laser Skin Resurfacing Technology. Dr. Rokhsar’s non-invasive skin rejuvenation is clinically proven to restore damaged skin, and fade the signs of aging. Fraxel laser initiates the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthier tissue that replaces skin imperfections. It also remodels collagen and boosts elastin development to tighten the skin’s structure.

Fraxel To Treat Acne Scars
Acne scars are left behind from even mild cases of acne. The deep inflammation and infection can leave behind deep pockets and uneven skin surface and tone.
There are four categories of acne scars:
- Boxcar Scars- oval or annular depressions that are wider than most scars, but do not penetrate deep into the skin, reaching the dermis.
- Hypertrophic or Keloid Scars- thick and raised scars that appear more commonly on the back or face. They spread beyond the original point of damage
- Ice Pick Scars- deep and narrow scars that extend through both the epidermis (the upper layer of skin) and the dermis (the deeper layer of skin).
- Rolling Scars- appear as sloped scars that rise and fall from the skin’s natural surface.

Fraxel Re:pair in NYC is an ablative laser that can be used to improve acne scars. The laser energy penetrates into the skin and creates tiny, microscopic areas of damage, which causes the skin cells to go into repair mode. In this manner, the skin generates new collagen and new healthy skin cells.

Fraxel For Eyelid Rejuvenation
Fraxel is considered the gold standard in reversing the signs of aging skin for wrinkles to skin resurfacing. Resurfacing is achieved by peeling away a layer of skin and stimulating collagen production. Collagen is the key naturally occurring protein responsible for the skin’s structure and tightness. Since collagen production decreases over time, this causes wrinkles and loose skin. Fraxel laser treatments stimulate new collagen production by causing micro-damage to the skin.
Fraxel has increasingly been used for the treatment of the eyelids, a delicate area prone to sagging skin and wrinkles. Results and patient’s feedback has revealed that eyelid skin was very responsive to Fraxel by decreasing wrinkles and dark circles.
Fraxel For Treating Wrinkles
The effects of aging on the dermal layer are significant. Not only does the dermal layer thin, but also less collagen is produced. Collagen is the elastin fibers that provide a bounce back to the skin. These changes in the structure of the skin cause the skin to wrinkles and sag. Fraxel lasers are used to resurface and rejuvenate the skin. They are proven to produce dramatic results in the treatment of wrinkles.
Recovery and Results From Fraxel Laser
After your NYC Fraxel treatment, there will be redness, swelling, and peeling for a few days. Many patients compare the feeling of the skin after Fraxel to the feeling of sunburn. Recovery time is limited to a few days. Patients usually see maximum results after 4-5 sessions of Fraxel. Because the skin will continually and naturally repair itself using collagen production, the elasticity protein that structures the skin, results will be gradual and the skin will continue to improve over time!

Fraxel Laser FAQ
Why do scars form?
Scar formation is a normal part of the skin’s healing process. Any cut in the skin heals by scarring. Most of these scars do not have any cosmetic consequences and are unnoticeable. However, some patients develop noticeable and disfiguring scars. These scars can be caused by acne, burns, trauma, or surgery
The size and severity of a scar depends on the size and location of the injury, age, genetic susceptibility, and lifestyle factors (i.e. smoking, drinking). Scars are firm areas of tissue and can be elevated or sunken-in. The color of a scar can vary anywhere from dark purple to red to light pink to white. Older, mature scars are a white color.
How painful is laser treatment for scars?
Laser treatments for scarring are minimally painful. Dr.Rokhsar and his staff do everything to make you comfortable during the procedure, including numbing cream before treatment and other medications if necessary.
What types of lasers are used to treat scars?
Fraxel:Repair is an ablative laser that can be used to improve the appearance of scars. The laser energy penetrates into the skin and creates tiny, microscopic areas of damage, which causes the skin cells to go into repair mode. In this manner, the skin generates new collagen and new healthy skin cells. The healthy cells underneath the scarred tissue will regenerate into smoother skin with normal texture.
Fractional C02 lasers are another type of laser used to resurface scarred skin. The laser beams stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, a protein found in young skin. These lasers target and remove damaged areas of skin on a microscopic level by creating controlled ‘holes’ of damage. This damage stimulates the skin to heal itself more rapidly; replacing the damaged, aged, scarred areas with fresh skin.
