Fraxel is a brand family of fractional laser skin treatments that offers treatments at different levels of intensity.
The fact that they are fractional lasers means that the laser itself is made up of hundreds of tiny columns of energy. Because the laser is split into tiny bits, Fraxel lasers affect only parts of the targeted area and thus have shorter healing times than non-fractional lasers.
There are four levels of intriguingly spelled Fraxel treatments that increase in strength. They include "re:fine," "re:store," (both of which are erbium lasers) "re:pair," (a C02 laser) and the most recent addition to the clan, "re:store Dual" (which combines an erbium laser and a thulium laser).
All of these treatments work by making tiny wounds in the dermis, which activate collagen production and prompt the growth of new cells. The result is plumper, smoother, healthier-looking skin.
