Fraxel® Fractional Laser

Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

The theory behind medical lasers including fractional lasers such as Fraxel is simple. A laser is a focused light beam of a given wavelength. Medical lasers work because certain areas or tissues within the skin can be targeted by different wavelengths leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Because of this ability of light to selectively target (be absorbed by) various tissue types lasers can be used to treat different kinds of skin conditions. Fraxel is a type of fractional laser.

Light sources have been extensively used for skin rejuvenation in the past decade. Medical lasers were first used in the 1960s as a cutting tool. The use of lasers has since been developed and perfected to incorporate treatment for a number of skin conditions including the effects of sun damage, the reduction of body hair and recently the treatment of psoriasis, acne, brown spots and, with the introduction of fractional lasers, even stretch marks! It should be noted that ophthalmologists also routinely use lasers for the treatment of certain eye conditions including the use of lasers to correct short sightedness. Because fractional lasers, and Fraxel in particular, is so versatile and successful in treating skin conditions - previously only treatable with deep skin resurfacing requiring weeks of down time- it has quickly become the laser of choice for many dermatologist. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (A.S.A.P.S.), which tracks treatment statistics for fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments, specifically the Fraxel laser, in 2007 over 167,000 Fraxel treatments were performed.
