fraxel-laser.jpgThe latest trend in non-ablative lasers is called Fraxel laser" where, laser spikes in tiny, deep columns called microthermal treatment zones are deliverd to the lower layer of skin via a computer guided handpiece. The name "Fraxel" comes from the fact that, only a fraction of the skin can be treated.

This treatment is normally done in a series of four sessions, in a medical office. When the full face is treated, 18 to 20 percent of it is done each visit, which lasts about 20 to 25 minutes and is done under topical anesthesia. Treatments are usually spaced two to three weeks apart. The Fraxel laser can treat virtually any skin area. Fees for the Fraxel laser treatment run upto $1,000 a session, with generally four sessions needed.
