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.
