How does Fraxel® treatment work?
Fractional laser treatment is a non-invasive treatment for the skin that uses a device that divides a laser beam into thousands of microscopic treatment zones, each targeting a tiny section of the skin. This process may be compared to the process of a photographic image being enhanced or altered pixel by pixel.
How can a Fraxel® improve my appearance?
Fraxel® may be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, legs, and back to treat mild to moderate acne scarring, minor imperfections on the surface of the skin, discoloration, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, certain cases of melasma, and surgical scars. Fraxel® also diminish wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes and on the eyelids and reduce precancerous lesions by gently scraping away sun-damaged skin and replacing it with a fresh new layer of skin cells. Overall, the Fraxel® laser is used to achieve dramatic improvement in the texture and tone of the skin.
Who is a good candidate for Fraxel® treatments?
While almost any adult in good health may be a candidate for laser skin resurfacing, the Fraxel® and similar lasers are more suitable for patients under 50 years of age, and for treating imperfections on the surface of the skin rather than in the deeper layers. Fraxel® is generally not recommended to treat redness but may be somewhat effective in treating brown pigmentation.

Is there any downtime after Fraxel®?
Your skin may feel somewhat sore after treatment, and it is crucial that you avoid sun exposure for several weeks following the treatment. Use a sunblock product with a minimum of SPF 30 every day to protect your delicate new layer of skin. You will be provided with detailed post-treatment instructions to properly care for your skin in order to maintain optimal results and keep your skin free from further damage. In most cases, you may resume regular physical activities within one to two days after treatment.
How much does a Fraxel® laser treatment cost in San Diego, CA?
The cost of treatments varies according to the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated. Typically, health insurance does not cover treatments. For this reason, Pollack Plastic Surgery provides easy financing options and accepts various forms of payment to help manage treatment costs.
Fraxel® laser treatments correct minor imperfections in the surface of the skin, renewing your skin’s tone and texture.
