About Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing

Discover the ability to gently but effectively remove the signs of aging and environmental damage with Fraxel®, a non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that can help you look years younger. Fraxel® can correct wrinkles, pigmented lesions, melasma, acne scars and surgical scars as well as dramatically improve tone and texture. It is an FDA-cleared treatment that allows you to revitalize your complexion, making your skin look smoother, fresher and more youthful. 

Fraxel® is able to treat a number of different skin problems. One of its most common uses is in reducing the appearance of scars (either from acne or physical trauma). Wrinkles and fine lines (even in sensitive areas like the skin that surrounds the eyes) can be treated through the system’s ability to promote collagen growth and the treatment also works to resolve tonal problems like age spots, uneven colouring, irregular pigmentation and more.  

One of the main reasons that Fraxel® Skin Resurfacing is recommended for so many skin correct procedures is due to another of its primary benefits: an unparalleled level of accuracy that results in minimal pain and speedy recovery times. The advanced fractional photo thermolysis system is able to target only problem tissue without accidentally causing injury to the surrounding area. This means that a patients’ skin heals extremely quickly and allows them to return to their normal schedule soon after their procedure is completed. 

Fraxel Treatment at Skin Vitality

There’s no reason to be nervous about your upcoming Fraxel® Skin Resurfacing procedure, but it can help to know what to expect. The treatment itself is quick and almost entirely painless with minimal side effects but, regardless, going into the procedure with plenty of information is always a good idea.

On the day of your appointment you will arrive at the aesthetic medical practice you’ve chosen and be directed to the treatment area. A technician, nurse or doctor will use a laser hand-piece to prepare the treatment site. The clinic will also use a specialized cooling device on this area as well. The hand-piece mentioned before will then be applied, directing laser energy at the targeted skin.

The procedure itself is essentially painless. Patients will feel some gentle heat along with prickling while the lasers do their work. If sensitive areas of the face are being targeted, anesthetic drops or other topical numbing agents may be used in order to minimize any discomfort.

Fraxel Re:Pair vs Fraxel Re:Store

There are two types of Fraxel® technologies. One is non-ablative and the other is ablative. 

What is Ablative Fraxel?

Ablative describes the surgical removal of tissue. Therefore, an ablative laser is one that removes the skin (and leaves open wounds). Fraxel Re:Pair is an ablative laser. Generally speaking, ablative lasers are used for complexion irregularities that require a more dramatic improvement. Due to its invasiveness, the recovery period may be lengthier. 

What is Non-Ablative Fraxel®?

A non-ablative laser is one that does not remove tissue. It works by producing a wound healing response at the deeper layers of your skin, without breaking the skin itself. This stimulates collagen growth. Fraxel Re:Store is a non-ablative laser.

How Does Fraxel Laser work?

The success behind Fraxel® technology is the way in which the device works. The skin in a treated area is exposed to laser energy, but unlike other laser-based skin resurfacing treatments, Fraxel® delivers this energy as microscopic columns which penetrate deeply into the dermis and leave some tissue unaffected. As a result, only a fraction of skin tissue is exposed at any given time, and that is why healing and the recovery process are faster – because only the affected tissue needs to recover from treatment. 

Fractional laser therapy is offered at many aesthetic medical practices under the trade name Fraxel®. Fraxel® leverages powerful and highly advanced technology that treats damaged or irregular skin through sophisticated lasers. This laser system (used in a procedure called fractional photo thermolysis) is able to penetrate deep into injured skin, replacing problem areas with new, healthy cells. 

The end result of a Fraxel® treatment is total repair that is usually referred to as skin resurfacing. The Fractional photo thermolysis system sees thousands of extremely fine laser columns being aimed at a treatment area. These columns (each one is only the size of 1/10th of a hair follicle’s diameter) are targeted, with incredible precision, toward where they are needed most. 

Fraxel® eliminates the damaged tissue responsible for skin problems and promotes natural growth processes in its place. Once the skin is able to function properly again patients experience a normalized and healthier-looking appearance.

FAQ's About Fraxel®

Fraxel is a Health Canada-approved, non-invasive laser treatment used to address signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sunspots. It promotes new collagen and elastin growth by targeting microscopic skin areas without damaging the entire surface.

Fraxel is a Health Canada-approved, non-invasive laser treatment used to address signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and sunspots. It promotes new collagen and elastin growth by targeting microscopic skin areas without damaging the entire surface.

On average, Fraxel results last at least a year, but this varies by patient. While Fraxel can improve severe acne or surgical scars, regular follow-ups may be needed every few years depending on the condition’s severity.

Fraxel is mostly painless, with only a mild prickling sensation. A numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. Fraxel manages to achieve great results without being ablative, so it avoids persistent burning, hot spots, or ‘crispy’ skin, while still delivering great results.

A topical lidocaine cream is applied for an hour to numb the area. Our technicians then use a wand to precisely control the laser’s strength and depth, with sensations ranging from mild prickling to warmth. Your nurse technician will send you a set of post-care instructions to follow when you get home for optimal results.

Expect redness, throbbing, and swelling for the first two days, followed by rough, peeling skin from days three to five. It is recommended to wait 2-3 weeks between treatments. Results depend on the number of treatments in the series.

The Fraxel DUAL procedure itself takes about 15 to 25 minutes, but you should allow an additional 45 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect before getting started.

For the first week after a Fraxel treatment, use only non-irritating, non-clogging skin care products. If your skin feels tight or itchy, apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer as needed. Your nurse technician will send you a set of post-care instructions to follow when you get home for optimal results.
