Fraxel® Laser Overview

Article reviewed by: M. Kirk Moore, M.D. - West Jordan, Utah

One of the most popular skin rejuvenation techniques is laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing has become increasing sought after as a way to counteract the effects of aging, improve acne scars, reduce pore size, and reduce or eliminate brown spots, age spots, sun spots, wrinkles and fine lines. The Fraxel® Laser is a relatively new technology that marks an improvement over older laser technologies. Older lasers could only be used on the face, and had several risky side effects such as hypopigmentation (whiter skin in the treated area), hyperpigmentation (darker skin in the treated area), prolonged erythema (redness), and scarring. Some of these risks were greater for patients with darker skin. The Fraxel® Laser eliminates those risks and can safely be used on many parts of the body, not just the face.
