The FDA has approved Fraxel® for use on the skin of all types. You can achieve immediate results after one appointment, but Dr. Burgess recommends several visits spaced out to get the best results. This method allows for gradual improvement over time, achieving a more natural effect.

If Fraxel® is right for you, your appointment will begin with applying a topical anesthetic, which will numb the skin and keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. Appointments are short and involve focused laser heat to target problem areas, preserving healthy tissue. You may notice some redness after your appointment, but this will go away shortly. This treatment is mild enough that patients will be able to apply make-up, shave and return to work right after treatment, with zero downtime. Dr. Burgess recommends the use of sunscreen after treatment to protect sensitive cells. As new skin develops following the procedure, you may see bronzing or flaking. It is a sign that the skin is repairing itself.
