Fraxel Q & A

What is the Fraxel laser?

The Fraxel laser is a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment that improves your skin’s tone and texture while minimizing sun damage and scarring. The Fraxel Dual system uses microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep below the surface of your skin to stimulate new collagen production from the deeper layers of tissue. The Fraxel system treats just a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed, so recovery time is fast.

The Fraxel Dual laser system resurfaces your skin to enhance your overall appearance, and it continues to help your skin look younger and more refreshed as collagen and new, healthy cells grow from the inside out.

What skin concerns can I treat with the Fraxel laser?

Fraxel laser treatments are effective at:

  • Lessening the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Erasing surface scarring from acne or surgical procedures
  • Reducing the appearance of age spots and areas of darker pigmentation, like freckles
  • Improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin
  • Treating actinic keratosis, a common skin condition


You may notice a difference after a single Fraxel laser treatment, although most people undergo 3-5 sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart for optimal results. Each session takes about 25 minutes to treat your entire face. The doctors at Manhattan Dermatology recommend the best course of action for your skin concerns and customize a treatment plan based on your individual needs.

What are the benefits of Fraxel laser treatments?

The benefits of the Fraxel Dual laser system are numerous. With Fraxel, you can achieve younger-looking, healthier skin without surgery or extended downtime. It’s a comfortable procedure with an integrated cooling system, and you can expect outstanding, natural-looking results, rather than a dramatic change.

After Fraxel treatments, your friends and family will notice how much healthier your skin looks, but not that you had cosmetic procedures done. Results are long-lasting, too, as long as you take care of your skin and protect your face from the harmful effects of the sun.

Are Fraxel Dual treatments right for you? If you’re ready to trade in your sun damage, age spots, and wrinkles for younger, revitalized, healthier skin, call the office to schedule a consultation. You can also use the online booking tool at your convenience.
