the beauty you had before the scars and stretch marks.
Fraxel for Acne Scars, Surgical Scars, Melasma and Stretchmark Removal is a non-invasive treatment that is clinically proven to be highly effective and safe for men and women with most skin types. It delivers real change that you can’t achieve from creams and lotions that promise to erase these blemishes, but always fail to deliver. For new stretchmarks and scars, which are still red/purple/ blue, this treatment can potentially repair up to 90% of the damaged skin. It is a life changing treatment!
A topical numbing cream is applied on the skin 45-60 minutes before your treatment. This helps make the experience a more comfortable one for you.
Actual Fraxel laser treatment approximately takes 20 minutes.The laser emitted from the Fraxel device penetrate the skin to the subcutaneous layer where collagen cells reside. It causes tiny wounds inside the skin that trigger the collagen cells to begin repairing the skin in the affected area.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel warm, similar to a mild sunburn for up to 3-5 days. Swelling and redness is common but it will vary from person to person.
Moisturizing cream can be applied to minimize the appearance of pinkness, peeling, and flaking. While the skin is healing on its own, sunscreen must be applied every day to protect against sun exposure. Please know, the imperfections we are addressing may get darker after treatment, this is normal! We are pulling the pigment to the forefront and then out!

Fraxel functions as the first non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment. Designed to create a younger looking appearance without surgery and minimal downtime.
The laser creates tiny ‘microthermal’ zones deep into the skin which the skin repairs by pushing out the old damaged skin, and replacing it with new skin. It triggers the natural healing process.
As a result of this, the skin accelerates the production of collagen and new, healthy skin cells.
Over a series of weeks and treatments, stretch marks will tighten and narrow significantly while scar tissue remodels itself, reducing a great deal of their visibility.
Although the results from your treatment are permanent, you will continue to age as normal. The rejuvenated look should last anywhere from five to 10 years.
