What is Fraxel?

Fraxel is a widely accepted and proven laser technique to reduce the signs of aging without any need for traditional surgery. The technique works more naturally than a typical surgery and can help reduce, if not reverse the conspicuous signs of aging. Patients who are keen to achieve a younger appearance without undergoing facial plastic surgery may consider Fraxel laser treatment. Dr. V recommends this treatment to suitable candidates in Middleburg, Leesburg, Fairfax, Manassas, Warrenton, Arlington and surrounding communities if they are looking for proven and safe alternatives to surgery.

Fraxel technology has been in use for more than a decade, and thousands of patients have benefitted from it in the United States and other countries. Fractional laser technique is less invasive than conventional laser applications, but it is designed to achieve optimal cosmetic enhancement outcomes. Fraxel has been one of the pioneers in fractional laser technology, and cosmetic surgery experts around the world have adopted this technology for their patients. More than 800,000 patients over the past decade, including men and women of different ethnicities, have benefitted from Fraxel technology to look and feel more youthful.

Fraxel laser technique can be applied to improve the following conditions effectively:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines on the face, including frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet around the eyes.
  • Superficial scars on the face and other parts. Fraxel can erase or reduce the effects of acne and other scars.
  • Pigmentation related issues on the skin. Fraxel can minimize the appearance of age spots.
  • Sun damaged skin. Excessive sun exposure can cause serious damage to the skin and pose the danger of skin cancer. Fraxel can help expedite healing of sun damaged skin.
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK). This is a typical pre-cancerous skin condition that can be treated with Fraxel laser technique.


Dr. V may suggest Fraxel treatment to her patients in Loudoun County, Fairfax County, Prince William County, Fauquier County, Arlington County and other areas if they are keen to avoid drastic changes to their appearance with facial plastic surgery. Busy mothers or working people who want to achieve cosmetic enhancement of their skin, but are reluctant to choose surgery because of the typical risks and prolonged recovery period involved, may be more suited for Fraxel treatment. Fraxel treatment is flexible enough to fit into any lifestyle, and it can be performed without affecting the current beauty regimen that the patient may be following.

How it Works

Fraxel is the original fractional laser technology that achieves the desired anti-aging effects without any significant impact on the healthy outer surface of the skin. It works underneath the skin’s surface from the top down. Fraxel laser addresses visible photo aging, conspicuous aging signs such as fine lines and wrinkles, and other imperfections such as age spots, scarring, and sun damage.

Fraxel works on the principle of penetrating the light energy into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate the skin’s natural collagen deposits. It allows the skin to become firmer and smoother naturally due to new collagen production, and the wrinkles reduce automatically. It also rejuvenates skin cells under the top surface to help smooth the pockets and creases that are causing uneven skin texture and scars. The precise laser technique only focuses on targeted areas, and achieves optimal results without causing any harm to the surrounding healthy tissue.

shutterstock_95613472Often referred to as a “microscopic facelift,” The Fraxel DUAL wavelength system builds upon the original patented fractional technology of the Fraxel Re:Store laser to allow practitioners to treat the deep and superficial layers of the skin simultaneously, without requiring the need for additional recovery time. The Fraxel DUAL treatment utilizes lasers operating at complementary frequencies to generate miniscule wounds in the skin’s dermis, which then initiates an internal healing response from the body, causing it to naturally produce collagen and elastin, the two primary components necessary for skin restoration and healing.

Fraxel DUAL laser system offers a number of new and advanced treatment benefits, including:

  • Provides more treatment options and better opportunities for treatment customization
  • Doctors can treat larger areas of the body or multiple regions of the body in one session
  • The procedure is more comfortable for patients
  • Length of treatment time is reduced
  • Pigment reduction results are visible more quickly

Because the Fraxel DUAL laser system offers the advantages of two lasers in one treatment, it is an excellent choice to treat a broad range of skin conditions and problems, and is effective for patients with mild or severe skin damage. The Fraxel DUAL laser is FDA-approved to treat a multitude of skin problems, including, but not limited to: periorbital wrinkles (wrinkles around the eyes), age spots, surgical scars, melasma (irregular patches of brown skin), actinic keratosis (precancerous lesions), acne scars, unwanted brown spots, pigmented lesions, and fine lines.

Another benefit of Fraxel DUAL is its ability to target and treat small areas of tissue without causing damage to the surrounding tissues, thereby minimizing recovery time, and allowing patients to resume their daily activities shortly after their treatment. Following the 15-30 minute treatment, patients may experience temporary after-effects such as a sun-burnt appearance, minor itching, dry skin, flaking, and skin peeling—all of which will subside in 2-3 days.

Although Fraxel DUAL’s skin-rejuvenating results will be visible after only one session, clinical studies recommend a treatment regimen of 3-5 sessions spaced approximately one month apart in order to achieve optimal and lasting skin-resurfacing effects.
