Fraxel Fractional Lasers
Using fractional photothermolysis, Fraxel effectively repairs the skin by stimulating the growth and regeneration of collagen. Fractional lasers penetrate top skin layers with the following unique advantages, which clearly distinguishes Fraxel from traditional lasers.
  • The laser columns treat a fraction of the skin without affecting the surrounding issues of the skin, thus speeding up the restoration of tissues rejuvenated by laser. As a result, the post-treatment recovery time is significantly shortened;
  • Fraxel generates very fine laser beams compared with traditional laser, so that it can target the problematic areas much more precisely, resulting in more remarkable results;
  • The epidermal wound caused by Fraxel is so minimal that it will be self-healed in 24 hours, thus reducing significantly the risk of bacterial infection.
