Fraxel II Laser

The Fraxel® Laser Treatment (FLT) is a safe and non-invasive way to treat acne scars, age spots, brown spots, melasma and wrinkles around the eyes. The Fraxel laser produces thousands of tiny treatment zones on skin, known as MicroThermal Zones (MTZs) to penetrate deep into the dermis and eliminate old epidermal pigmented cells. The Fraxel laser is precise enough so that for every MTZ the laser targets and treats, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This will allow your skin to heal much faster than if the entire area was to be treated at once. The laser targets aging and damaged skin by creating “wounds” within targeted areas beneath the skin’s outermost layer, triggering the body’s natural production of collagen and skin cells.

The Fraxel laser is fabulous for improving sun damage and eliminating fine lines and wrinkles. The settings can also be varied to treat deep lines and wrinkles and acne scarring.

One of the most gratifying things to treat is the loose skin that develops with age and sun damage. The Fraxel thickens the dermis and gives more substance to your skin providing you with a revitalized appearance.

Not only can we treat your face but we can also treat your neck with great results and hands too.
