Alpine Plastic Surgery: Fraxel

Dr. Randall Barnett, from Alpine Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is a doctor who oversees this procedure.

The science of Fraxel treatment involves three key components:

• The epidermis – the outer layer of our skin

• The dermis – sub-layers of skin that include collagen and elastin

• Microscopic laser columns – rebuilding skin from the inside out

Under the epidermis is a network of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that keep your skin youthful and tight. But as you age and get more sun exposure, those proteins simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them. As a result, your skin may start to sag and show damage like wrinkles, lines or spots.

This is where Fraxel laser treatment can help. Microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the dermis to create tiny wounds, which trigger your body’s natural response system to heal those wounds. This process expedites your body’s remodeling of collagen and elastin, which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. This is how Fraxel treatment creates new skin from the inside out.

Skin renewal – from 28 days to 2 days

Just as important are the areas of skin that Fraxel treatment doesn’t touch. Because the treatment is so precise, the laser columns target only a fraction of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your body to heal the skin much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.

How fast? Your body’s natural skin renewal process is about 28 days. Fraxel laser treatment does it in two.

We pioneered fractional technology

Fraxel treatment is the first non-invasive treatment of its kind, rejuvenating your skin from the inside out.

Add it up, and Fraxel treatment is in a class all its own. There’s simply nothing else like it for safely, effectively improving the appearance of your skin and creating a renewed sense of confidence.

No matter your age, sex or skin color, Fraxel laser treatment can uncover your youthful skin buried within.

For men and women of all ages

Whether you’re in your 30s and just starting to see wrinkles …

Or in your 60s or older with deeper lines and loose skin …

Or somewhere in between …

The Fraxel family of treatments has an option for your unique skin.

For all skin colors

Since African-American, Latino and Asian skin types generally have more melanin (pigment) than Caucasian skin, they’ve traditionally been at a higher risk for discoloration and scarring with conventional laser treatments. But unlike these other procedures, Fraxel treatment is safe and effective for all skin colors. Because it precisely targets microscopic areas deep in the skin, Fraxel treatment leaves surrounding tissue intact – without scarring or increased pigmentation.

On and off the face

And because the technology is so precise, Fraxel treatment works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands.
