Skin rejuvenation and tightening procedures done with the Fraxel laser can repair fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars while enhancing skin texture and pigmentation, it even works on delicate skin. Fraxel can repair aging and sun-damaged skin, with many of the benefits of other laser skin resurfacing, but without the downtime, side effects and long recovery period. Fraxel cost is on average a $1000 per treatment.
A topical anesthesia is used. Your cosmetic surgeon will glide a hand held laser across the area that is going to be treated. A cooling device is used to blow chilled air across the skin as it is being treated. The laser delivers tiny dots of energy that feel like a heated prickling sensation. The procedure lasts about 30 minutes.
