Fraxel® - Fraxel Laser

Fraxel

I’ve seen it in the news recently, but what is Fraxel®?

Fraxel® is a revolutionary laser used for cosmetic improvement.  It fractionates the laser beam into thousands of microscropic laser columns, unlike any other previous laser, to generally allow for better results with fewer side effects.

What is Fraxel® used for?

Fraxel® is used to help remove years from your face, neck or hands by minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, or pigmentation and helps you regain your youthful appearance.  Specifically, Fraxel® is commonly used for:

  • Skin resurfacing
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Pigmented lesions (age/sun spots)
  • Discoloration and uneven pigment
  • Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Improved tone, texture and pore size

Based on the indication, 3-6 treatments will typically be recommended.

Is it safe?

Yes.  Worldwide, over 500,000 treatments have been completed and the FDA has approved Fraxel® use in the United States.  Although cosmetic results may vary, Fraxel® laser treatments are generally considered safe in most condition, but Dr. Weisberg will review any specific concerns during your consultation. 

Why should I get my Fraxel® treatments from Dr. Weisberg?

Although the treatments are generally considered safe, powerful fractionated lasers such as Fraxel® are not toys and significant side effects can be more likely to occur with untrained operators.

It is important to know the qualifications and Board Certification of your physician prior to your treatment.  Please research the Board Certification of your laser provider by visiting the Texas Medical Board website at www.tmb.state.tx.us/

Dr. Weisberg is a board-certified dermatologist with many years of formal University based training in cosmetic treatments including the usage of lasers.  Training of operators at other businesses may vary widely from a few hours of non-formal, non-University based training to a few weeks.

Know who is treating you.  Buyer beware!
