Fraxel is the best non-ablative fractional laser with Dual wavelengths 1550 and 1927 nm for full face, neck, and chest. The non-ablative laser keeps the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) intact without removing it but can reach the underlying skin layers to stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate the skin and provide skin tightening and pigmentation. The fractional property is a brilliant addition to the Fraxel technology to minimize skin damage and after treatment downtime.

Why Fraxel Laser has two wavelengths?

The concept of using two different wavelengths is to target two different lesions, namely wrinkles and pigmentation, at the same treatment. The first pass using 1550 nm targets the dermis for skin tightening and wrinkles reduction, and skin pass with 1927 nm target the pigmentation lesions. Both wavelengths have water molecules as chromophore that absorbs the photon energy of the laser. The water in the skin has less affinity to 1927 nm laser rather than 1550 nm laser

The treatment downtime values between patients to be between 3-7 days. Most of the discomfort is related to the heat, allowing enough time for the Freezing cream to work and the use of the cryo chiller will make the Fraxel treatment more comfortable. The patient might experience some immediate discomfort in form of swelling, redness and pinpoint bleeding.

Swelling and Redness— This is a common side effect of Fraxel laser and it usually subsides after a couple of hours to days depending on the treatment settings. More aggressive treatments take longer time.

we advise patients to use cooling methods such as cold compresses on an hourly basis for the first day after treatment. It may help to elevate your head while sleeping by using two pillows on the night after the Fraxel resurfacing laser.

Patients might experience worsening in the redness and swelling for the next two or three days after treatment. Some dark spots may appear after treatment and the skin color might change to be bronze. The skin texture might be described as sandpaper and the out layers will start flake and peel too and it will be replaced with fresh new skin, this is what resurfacing means. The sloughing process starts 3-4 days after the treatment and it might continue for 1-2 weeks after. The severity of the side effect and the length of the healing process mainly depends on the setting used during the treatment. the higher setting is related to more aggressive treatment and longer downtime, but better results.

After two weeks, the baby fresh skin might stay rosy pink for more two weeks. Patients are free to use makeup to cover it if they do not like the pink color.

This mainly depends on the skin condition and the lesion being treated. An average client need between 2-3 sessions three months apart


Skin tightening:

this treatment wipes out fine wrinkles and stimulates new collagen generation and more delicate texture

Scar and Stretch marks:

Fraxel laser improves the production of collagen by invigorating the dermis layer and encourages new cell development on the epidermis to smooth out the highest point of the scar and stretch marks.


Pre-Treatment Instructions

Glycolic acid and Retin-A (topical and oral) has to be discontinued at least 1 week before the treatment. The continuation of the treatment depends on the treatment and the response to the Fraxel treatment

Make sure to protect the treated skin from sustain sun exposure by using 30+ SPF sunblock or covering the area with clothes

People with a history of cold sore are advised to take a protective antiviral medication course 1 day before the treatment.

Freezing cream: It takes about 15 min for the freezing cream to work efficiently, so please allow enough time by arriving early.


Most patients describe the treatment as an expanded vibe of medium to mild heat during the course of the treatment. We apply a special freezing cream for 15 min before the Fraxel treatment to limit the discomfort during the laser treatment. The cooling nozzle integrates the Fraxel Dual handpiece is to reduce pain and make the whole procedure more comfortable. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which generally reduces in 1 to 3 hours.


Since Fraxel dual combines the fractional and non-ablative properties of Laser, the downtime after the treatment is way shorter than using Ablative and non-fractional Laser such C02. Additionally, both wavelength of Fraxel dual has lower affinity to water than the 10600 nm CO2 laser. This results in fewer side effects such as Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation PIH. The low melanin absorption of Fraxel laser makes it safe to treat all skin color including American African.

How to Care for Your Skin After Treatment?

To alleviate the heat sensation, treat the area treated with Fraxel similar to sunburn treatment. Applying moisturizer and ice packs will help to make the after treatment less comfortable. A thin layer for Vaseline may be applied to protect and moisturize the treated skin.

Please allow the skin to naturally slough and peel, do not scrub or use exfoliating products. Keep away from any irritants such as harsh detergents and coarse cloths

During the first week after the treatment try to avoid alcohol, sun exposure, intensive exercise, and swimming as the pool water might have some harsh chemical

Once the sloughing and peeling are completed and the new skin gets the normal color, you may go back to use Retin A and glycolic acid product if necessary.

Using 30+ SPF  sunscreen is very important to minimize long-term side effect and get the best results from the treatment. Apply the sunscreen 20 minutes before going out. reapply another layer directly before going out. We also recommend using a hat during the first two weeks

Make sure that the moisturizing creams are not too oily or occlusive, most of the good sunblock can also be used for that purpose as well.
