Fraxel Treatments

A Family of Treatments to Fit Your Lifestyle


The Fraxel family laser treatments, all deliver remarkable results with fast recovery. The range of Fraxel treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, number of procedures needed and results. The most aggressive treatment, Fraxel Repair, can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin. This is a single treatment procedure, but will require more downtime and after treatment skin care. Less aggressive treatments, like Fraxel Dual, can produce significant results for mild to moderately sun damaged skin over the course of 3 to 6 treatments. Typically, there is minimal after treatment skin care with these treatments and downtime is minimal.

When considering which treatment option is best for you, Dr. Gerrish will discuss the trade-off between downtime and results to determine the best option that fits you and your lifestyle.

Fraxel is effective on:
  • Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
  • Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
  • Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition
Safety and Side Effects:

With a track record of over 800,000 treatments, Fraxel technology is proven to be safe and effective for multiple indications. But because skin types and conditions can vary, some side effects are possible.

The breakthrough Fraxel Repair treatment makes it possible - with no need to ever go under the knife.

So you can avoid facelifts in the future and improve your appearance today.
