Fraxel lasers are characterized by delivery of energy in a fractionated manner. Fractionated refers to energy that is delivered through noncontiguous (interrupted) zones. Accordingly, normal skin is left intact which translates into lesser wounding and more rapid recovery. The Fraxel® Restore Dual laser is a non-ablative fractionated device that stimulates collagen deposition leading to a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance to your skin over several months following treatment. The Fraxel laser has broad applications, including but not limited to photoaged skin (damage induced by UV exposure including wrinkling, abnormal texture, tone and pigment), acne scarring, surgical or traumatic scarring, stretch marks, and for people looking for overall rejuvenation.
