Find out if laser skin resurfacing at the Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics is right for you. Request a consultation online or call (214) 631-7546 to make an appointment. Women and men visit us from Plano, Fort Worth, and other surrounding communities. When you schedule a consultation for Fraxel and other cosmetic procedures, you will receive a customized “Total Skin Rejuvenation” plan to help you achieve your ideal look.
Like other resurfacing techniques, Fraxel treats skin imperfections such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, pigmentation irregularities, sun-induced redness, and to some degree skin laxity. Unlike other techniques, Fraxel does so with little, or at least much less, recovery time.
Fraxel works by emitting very small, precise points of light into the skin surface. The laser penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulates the body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh, healthy, new skin. Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel treatments work not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas including the neck, chest, and hands.
Your Fraxel Options
Fraxel comes in several different iterations to suit the varied needs of our patients. During your consultation, your practitioner helps you choose the right version for your skin. We offer the following:
Fraxel re:store is a more superficial treatment that, depending on the condition of the skin and the area being treated, typically requires 3 to 5 sessions. These sessions are usually spaced 2 to 6 weeks apart. This treatment is generally well tolerated. Discomfort is minimized by topical anesthetic and cold air that is directed on the treatment area during the procedure. Following the treatment, most patients report feeling a sunburn sensation that usually subsides within a few hours. Some patients may experience mild swelling for several days following the procedure. The mild recovery of Fraxel re:store consists of just a few days of pink, dry skin with some roughness and slight peeling of the skin surface.
Fraxel re:pair is a more aggressive, deeper treatment that requires only a single session. To achieve a comfortable treatment, patients are administered oral medications and both topical and local anesthetics are used to numb the skin surface. Recovery period for the Fraxel re:pair is approximately one week of wound care, which includes some degree of redness, swelling, and peeling of the skin. This is a deeper treatment for more advanced photo damage and deeper wrinkles.
We also offer Fraxel Dual, which treats pigmentation in addition to improving the texture of the skin and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
Results from Fraxel re:store, Fraxel re:pair, and Fraxel Dual treatments are immediate and progressive. Soon after treatment, the skin will feel softer, look brighter, and show a more even tone. The results will continue to improve over the following 4 to 6 months after the treatment as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal and remodel.
Enhance Your Results
After your treatment, we may also recommend SkinPen™ microneedling to complement your results. Microneedling is a precise, minimally invasive treatment that we often use to improve the appearance of acne scarring or uneven skin texture.Back to Top
