What is Fraxel?

Fraxel treatment is a safe, non-invasive laser skin treatment that removes years from your appearance — without the risks, side effects or prolonged downtime of other procedures.

Whether you have sun damage, wrinkles or other signs of age, Fraxel treatment delivers remarkable results with fast recovery. So you can quickly return to work or other activities with renewed skin — and renewed confidence.

Fraxel Skin Science

Fraxel for Facial Acne

Think of your skin as a digital photo that is delicately touched up one spot at a time. Fraxel treatment, likewise, affects a fraction of tissue at a time with thousands of microscopic laser columns — each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle. Then your body takes care of the rest. The laser columns stimulate a natural healing process that works from the inside out, replacing damaged tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.

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.

Manufacturers Notes:


As the original and most widely adopted Fraxel system, the Fraxel laser system is recognized for effective non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing. Predictable with a great safety record, the laser typically delivers dramatic results for all skin types, on and off the face—with minimal disruption to patients’ daily routine.

The Fraxel treatment is proven effective for photodamage, mild to moderate periorbital wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, melasma and Actinic Keratosis.

Remarkable results. Remarkable versatility.

The Fraxel re:store laser was engineered to treat across a variety of conditions, on all skin types and anywhere on the body. Since it delivers predictable epidermal turnover with each treatment, nearly all patients see immediate improvement. And due to collagen remodeling, those results are enhanced over weeks and months.

Unparalleled for treating acne scars

When it comes to acne scars, Fraxel re:store treatment succeeds where other procedures have failed. The Fraxel re:store laser can reach deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen remodeling. While keeping surrounding tissue intact for maximum healing and minimal discomfort or downtime. Numerous clinical publications report that the Fraxel treatment provides more consistent, successful results than any other procedure for treating acne scars.

Advanced technology—the most efficient delivery for the best possible results

All Fraxel laser products use the same patented platform of technological intelligence—ensuring the highest efficacy, safety, and flexibility. Since you select the energy level, treatment level, and the number of passes, you can tailor each treatment to your patient’s needs. Key features of the Fraxel re:store system:

Intelligent Optical Tracking system.

The technology adjusts to hand speed and ensures uniform treatment, distributing pulses evenly while maintaining optimal spacing to reduce heat. The result is treatment that’s safe, effective, and fast, with a full-face treatment typically completed in 20-25 minutes. Optimized spot size based on chosen parameters. The system optimizes the microscopic spot size for each energy level, maximizing penetration while minimizing bulk heating in surrounding tissue. As a result, typically see improvements in mild to moderate photodamage with minimal downtime.

More comfortable procedure.

Superficial targeting of the Thulium wavelength and focal cooling improves patient comfort.

Fraxel Roller Tips.

Cool Roller tips allow focal cooling of target treatment sites, improving patient comfort.

Faster treatment times

Improved scanner design increases procedure speed by 25%. Intuitive touch-screen interface. The easy-to-navigate system requires only 3 settings to control depth, density, and energy delivered.


The laser fires only when the hand piece touches the skin and when the foot-switch is engaged. And to prevent over-treatment, the number of microscopic treatment zones (MTZs) is matched to the speed of application. This built-in safety and ease of use make the Fraxel re:store system a flexible option for your practice.
