Here’s How Fraxel Laser Technology Can Safely Treat All Skin Types With Maximal Results

Why the fractionated laser technology by Solta Medical stands out compared to other devices when it comes to effective, advanced and low-risk procedures.

With any aesthetics procedure, safety is always a top priority. With patients seeking for results with minimal downtime and risk, this can often factor out a number of devices for selection, typically when it comes to light-based devices. Fractional laser devices, such as Fraxel, have become increasingly popular in the aesthetics industry due to their decreased recovery time and risk of adverse events.

Traditionally, laser treatments used strictly for resurfacing and rejuvenation have been categorised as ablative and non-ablative. Ablative treatments ‘ablate’ epithelial tissue, which this method has shown to be effective – but with significant side effects and several weeks of recovery time, also posing a risk for infection due to the large surface area of ablated tissue.

Fraxel laser delivers the potency of ablative treatments with the faster recovery time of non-ablative laser, meaning your patients get the best of both worlds – visible results and less downtime.

Non-ablative treatments, meanwhile, have very few side effects and low downtime. Fraxel uses patented fractionated laser technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin, then the ‘fractionated’ laser energy spares the surrounding tissue whilst simultaneously delivering the energy deep into the skin, which promotes a faster healing process.

The Fraxel Dual has added the power of the1927nm Thulium-fiber laser to the traditional 1550nm Erbium-glass Fraxel, combining both wavelengths to achieve maximal results.

When comparing Fraxel to other lasers, it is important to note that each device has its own set of risks and benefits. Designed for all skin types, Fraxel provides a wide array of treatment options to address many forms of ageing, customised to each patient’s needs and concerns. The Fraxel laser also does not discriminate – it is designed to treat all skin types.

Fraxel has been shown to be effective in treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Surface scarring & texture
  • Pigmentation & sun damage
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK)

Fraxel can deliver noticeable results for your patients in a single treatment. Soon after the treatment, the skin can feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show more of an even-tone. The next 3 to 6 months
will provide ongoing results as the skin undergoes remodelling and more collagen is produced. Results are long-lasting depending on lifestyle, age, skin condition and skincare regimen.
