The Fraxel laser diminishes the appearance of age spots, sun damage, fine lines, scars and improves tone and texture of skin. The Fraxel laser can also treat actinic keratoses, pre-cancerous growths that form due to excessive sun exposure, which may turn into skin cancer. The laser works by injuring your skin with microscopic laser columns while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. Your body then repairs the damage with new, fresh, healthy skin. Treatment can be customized based on your needs and areas of concern. The Fraxel laser can be used to treat many areas of the body including face, chest, hands, arms and legs.
