What Can Fraxel Do For You?

For laser skin resurfacing and pigment correction, Fraxel is the most effective non-surgical solution available. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most advanced way to smooth the skin’s surface and improve aging, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, and other skin texture problems, all with minimal downtime.

Smooth, Even Skin

Fraxel does an excellent job of treating skin problems because it’s so precise, leaving you with smoother, younger-looking skin.

Subtract Years From Your Appearance

Fine lines and wrinkles bear the brunt of the blame when it comes to signs of premature aging. But hyperpigmentation, pothole-size pores and an uneven skin tone can all add years to your appearance. Northwest Medi Spa uses Fraxel to restore a more uniform, translucent tone, and correct hyperpigmentation.

Erase Hyperpigmentation and Discoloration

Caused by years of sun exposure and oxidative damage, sunspots, age spots and pigmented blotches are often resistant to topical treatments.  Fraxel is revolutionary in its ability to correct hyperpigmentation and discoloration on the face, neck, chest, back, arms and legs in just a few treatments. Dr. Nonweiler also recommends Fraxel for patients who are seeking to:

Treat acne scarring

Tighten large pores

Improve skin tone and texture

Erase the effects of sun damage, including facial wrinkles

Mitigate melasma, which is typically caused by hormonal fluctuations

How Fraxel Works

In the past, lasers used for rejuvenation were not fractional. They would treat a wide area of skin at the same time. This limited both the depth and the intensity of the treatment that could be given. With fractional treatment, only a set percentage of the skin surface is treated during each session. Thus, healing is quick and not prone to scarring or loss of normal skin color. With Fraxel, new collagen is formed in the treated areas as the skin renews itself.

Is Fraxel Safe?

Fraxel uses patented fractional laser technology to target ageing and sun-damaged skin and to reestablish a more youthful, refreshed appearance without the risks or complications of surgery. While patients who are pregnant and nursing should avoid the treatment, the Fraxel  technology is safe to use on both men and women and on nearly every skin type.
