Fraxel® Laser Treatment Buzz...
The Fraxel® SR1500 laser was launched
in fall 2006 and followed the Fraxel® 750 laser. The Fraxel®
SR1500 system is the latest innovation in aesthetic laser medical
technology from the company that pioneered fractional laser delivery
for skin restoration. This Fraxel® laser sets the standard for
anti-aging, collagen remodeling and non-ablative skin resurfacing.
The Fraxel® laser provides a highly effective, predictable and
safe non-ablative treatment for patients with acne scarring, melasma
or hormonal skin discolouration, periorbital wrinkles, brown spots,
sun damage and stretch marks.
The Fraxel® laser has many clinical advantages over less sophisticated
aesthetic medical devices. It has FDA clearance for treatment at
70mJ (beyond 1.4 mm into the dermis). The optical zoom hand piece
allows for a precise spot size to optimize both lesion width and
depth based on the treatment parameters selected. The Fraxel® laser
has a continuous motion hand piece and new roller tip for safe,
efficient and fast treatments. This second generation intelligent
optical tracking system provides a smooth, consistent, uniform pattern
delivery without the need for the blue dye that was previously used.
The ergonomic handpiece and extended sapphire tip allow for convenient
treatment around the eyes and on the upper lip. The Fraxel® has high-resolution
graphics that provide real-time measurement feedback on the screen
and a smart treatment control engine that calculates the depth of
penetration and dosage delivery based on the operator's selection
of energy and treatment level.
Many patients come to the office to improve their fine wrinkles,
sun damage, pigmentation and acne scarring. They want to look 5
to 10 years younger. The Fraxel® laser is an excellent device for
this type of patient. The Fraxel® laser is the laser treatment of
choice for acne scarring, enlarged pores, mild to moderate wrinkles,
pigmentation, brown spots and sun damage spots. It also produces
a substantial improvement in tone, texture and the overall appearance
of the skin.
The Fraxel® laser is the ideal treatment for acne scarring because
it is very effective and there is minimal downtime.
The Fraxel® laser is routinely used to treat photodamage of the face,
neck, chest, hands, and arms. There is an improvement in colour,
texture, fine lines and wrinkles. It improves acne scars, and scars
that occur after surgery or trauma.
The Fraxel® laser safely treats off the face areas, including the
neck, chest, back, arms, hands, and abdomen. Other lasers are not
used off the face because of the potential risk of scarring.
The Fraxel® laser is ideal to treat unwanted brown spots from age
and sun damage. The Fraxel® laser stimulates the production of new
collagen and results in tighter, thicker skin.
The Fraxel® laser is perfect for patients who want the benefits of
ablative skin resurfacing, including a reduction in acne scars and
wrinkles, tightening of the skin, and an improvement of texture,
tone and pigmentation, and do not want the downtime associated with
the older ablative resurfacing lasers.
The Fraxel® laser penetrates deeply into the skin to promote the
growth of new collagen and result in deeper dermal remodeling than
seen with non-ablative procedures such as intense pulsed light.
Acne scarring and wrinkles are treated more effectively.
Patients want the maximum result with the least possible downtime.
With Fraxel® laser treatments, they experience a significant improvement,
with minimal downtime. Patients have been thrilled with their results.
