Skin Resurfacing: Laser vs. Fraxel

Laser vs. Fraxel

Skin resurfacing can restore and rejuvenate the skin. With time our skin shows signs of aging from the exposure to the sun and elements.

Until recently there were two treatment methods to rejuvenate the skin; ablative and non-ablative treatments. Ablative lasers treat deep into the dermis of the skin by removing the upper epidermis. It treats both the surface and deep layers of the skin. This means a more effective treatment of lines and wrinkles but with a longer recovery. It couples up nicely with surgery. Non-ablative treatments preserve to epidermis but never get deep into the skins dermis. This means an easy recovery but not as aggressive of a treatment.

Fraxel is a new technology that treats deep into the dermis while preserving the epidermis. It works by laying down a laser pattern which gets deep into the dermis without ablating or taking away the epidermis. This means a deep treatment without the prolonging recovery. Non-ablative lasers are appealing because there is little to no down time. Fraxel now bridges the gap between ablative and non-ablative treatments. It treats deep into the dermis, preserves the epidermis and has little to no down time. It usually takes 4-5 treatments spaced one month apart
