The science of Fraxel treatment involves three key
1.) The epidermis - the outer layer of our skin.
2.) The dermis - sub-layers of skin that include
collagen and elastin.
3.) Microscopiclaser columns - rebuilding
skin from the inside out.
Under the epidermis is a network of collagen and elastin,
which are proteins that keep your skin youthful and tight.
But as you age and get more sun exposure, those proteins
simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them. As
a result, your skin may start to sag and show damage like
wrinkles, lines or spots.
This is where Fraxel laser treatment can help. Microscopic
laser columns penetrate deep into the dermis to create tiny
wounds, which trigger your body's natural response system to
heal those wounds. This process expedites your body's
remodeling of collagen and elastin, which results in
tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. This is how
Fraxel treatment creates new skin from the inside out.
Skin renewal - from 28 days to 2 days
Just as important are the areas of skin that Fraxel
treatment doesn't touch. Because the treatment is so
precise, the laser columns target only a fraction of skin at
a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This
?fractional? treatment allows your body to heal the skin
much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.
How fast? Your body's natural skin renewal process is about
28 days. Fraxel laser treatment does it in two.

For all skin colors.
Since African-American, Latino and Asian skin types generally
have more melanin (pigment) than Caucasian skin, they've
traditionally been at a higher risk for discoloration and
scarring with conventional laser treatments. But unlike these
other procedures, Fraxel treatment is safe and effective for
all skin colors. Because it precisely targets microscopic
areas deep in the skin, Fraxel treatment leaves surrounding
tissue intact ? without scarring or increased pigmentation.
