Proven Laser Technology

Fraxel is one of the most popular, complete, and tremendous laser technologies to make the skin smoother and reduce the signs of aging without invasive surgery. The procedure is widely accepted by anti-aging experts as well as patients in more than a 100 countries around the world. An estimated one million Fraxel procedures have been performed until date, and the safety record has been exemplary.

The technology is designed to reverse the visible effects of aging, while avoiding the potential risks and side effects as well as prolonged recovery period that may accompany a surgical procedure. Dr. V is an experienced provider of Fraxel laser treatment. She will evaluate the patient’s unique genetic make-up and personal history and how it contributes to the appearance of the skin. She will then develop a customized treatment plan to match with the patient’s aesthetic needs and lifestyle.

Types of Fraxel Laser

Fraxel laser technology can be broadly classified into ablative and non-ablative techniques. The ablative technique is more aggressive and designed to achieve more dramatic outcomes. This technique disrupts the entire skin column, including the top layer of the skin. Non-ablative Fraxel technique involves a milder treatment approach. It will either spare the top layer of the skin column, or spare the deeper dermis, and not impact as deeply as the ablative treatment.

The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts is equipped to provide three of the major Fraxel treatments, including Fraxel Re:pair, Fraxel Re:store and DUAL. All of these treatment options are safe and keep the patient comfortable during treatment. Fraxel technology avoids the risks and side effects typically associated with laser procedures. The downtime is reduced, and results are more effective compared to many other non-surgical treatments.

Versatility of the Fraxel treatments at Dr. V’s practice ensures that each patient can receive the most appropriate treatment suited to their skin condition. Patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive Fraxel solutions in a safe and friendly environment at The Virginia Institute of Surgical Arts.
