Pittsburgh Fraxel® Dual
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).
