Fraxel® Laser Resurfacing:

Fraxel® Laser treatments are designed to target aging and damaged skin by producing thousands of deep microscopic treatment zones (MTZ’s). Fraxel® is a type of fractional laser. “Fractional” refers to the way that for every zone of skin actively treated, there are areas of surrounding skin left untreated. In other words, a fraction of the skin (up 20% generally) is treated in one session. By leaving the surrounding skin intact, the treatment is much more tolerable than traditional full-field (non-fractional) laser treatments. This also allows for a faster recovery. Dr. Krysinski relates the effect of Fraxel® on skin to that of a lawn aerator punching holes in the grass to promote new, healthy growth.



At Cosmetic Laser CentersSM, we offer two Fraxel® lasers, one of which is fractional and non-ablative (Fraxel® DUAL), and the other is fractional and ablative (Fraxel® re:pair). 

Fraxel® DUAL 1550nm/1927nm

Previously referred to as Fraxel® re:store, the Fraxel® DUAL offers a non-ablative means of targeting the skin’s surface, as well its deeper layers. It has two treatment modes or wavelengths. The 1550nm penetrates much deeper into the layers of the skin. It is more appropriate for the treatment of deeper lines and scarring, including acne scars. The 1927nm penetrates less deeply, focusing more on skin texture, tone and superficial signs of aging and sun damage.
