Fraxel is a well-known name in cosmetic rejuvenation, designing fractional lasers with high success rates and for lasting results.

Dr. Adam Najem offers two types of Fraxel laser treatment, to combat the signs of ageing and enhance the appearance of your skin.

What is Fraxel Laser Treatment?

Fraxel laser treatment targets two common skin complaints with its cutting-edge fractional laser resurfacing:

  • Discoloured skin arising from sun-exposure, age spots, or pigmentation
  • Wrinkles and lines arising from poor skin or lack of collagen due to natural ageing

Microscopic laser columns penetrate a fraction of the skin, before becoming absorbed by the flesh’s water molecules. Next, this is converted into heat, leading to small contained points of thermal coagulation (known as microscopic thermal zones, or MTZ).

This process stimulates the body to begin healing, replacing those cells which are old and / or damaged. This can reduce scars (including those caused by acne) and create new collagen.

In short, the procedure basically creates an effective rejuvenating process.

Because of the lasers’ fractionated design, those uninjured areas of the skin which don’t need treatment are left untouched. The lasers’ safety is improved, which enables treatment of various skin types, including darker tones.

The two types of Fraxel lasers available are based on different wavelengths: 1550nm and 1927nm.

The 1550nm laser penetrates the skin deeply, and can treat scars, wrinkles, lines, and stretch marks. This can enhance skin tone too.

The 1927nm laser focuses on the skin’s surface only, to reduce sun spots, sun-damaged areas, pigmentation, enlarged pores, and fine lines.

What Does Fraxel Laser Treatment Involve?

The Fraxel laser treatment begins with the application of a topical anaesthetic for one hour ahead of the procedure itself, using a comfortable wrap.

Your face will be cleaned, and the laser treatment will begin. This takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

There is a risk that the procedure may lead to mild discomfort, though it’s uncommon. Dr. Adam Najem can offer ‘happy’ gas throughout upon request, to alleviate any possible discomfort.
