What the Fraxel® Laser Treats*
Until a few years ago, two varieties of laser treatment had been available for cosmetic enhancement-ablative and non-ablative. Ablative, which literally means to vaporize at a very high temperature, are very effective at destroying unwanted tissue but have significant side-effects and require a lengthy healing period. Non-ablative, on the other hand, had very few side-effects and required almost no healing time, but involved numerous treatments over many months to achieve only modest results. At long last, a laser with the potency of ablative treatments and the gentle safety of non-ablative lasers has won approval from the US Food and Drug Administration to treat a variety of important cosmetic conditions. The Fraxel® Laser Treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, the Fraxel® Laser treatments trigger the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. And because the Fraxel® Laser Treatment combines the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime for patients.After several years of studies and mounting evidence of the Fraxel® Laser’s safety and effectiveness, the FDA has cleared this unique new laser to treat the following conditions:

  • Acne Scars
  • Age Spots/Brown Spot
  • Melasma (Mask of Pregnancy)
  • Wrinkles Around The Eyes
  •  Actinic Keratosis (AKs)


Fraxel® has taken the industry leading non-ablative Fraxel re:store® system to the next level by adding a new wavelength that will enable us to better address pigmentation on the entire body with minimal discomfort. Instead of doing multiple IPL treatments to address pigmentation, the new Fraxel Dual provides results after just one treatment. We are proud to be the first clinic in Marin to introduce the Fraxel re:store Dual wavelength system!
