As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Sejal Shah offers the most advanced services and top systems in skin care to reduce the signs of aging, sun damage, and scarring. With Fraxel® fractional skin resurfacing treatment, microscopic laser columns promote the growth of new, healthy cells to give you smoother, fresher, and younger-looking skin.
Fraxel is an advanced and non-invasive type of laser treatment that is used to address a wide range of skin imperfections from hyperpigmentation, brown spots, fine lines, and wrinkles around the eyes to dullness, acne scars or surgical scars. With the use of patented fractional laser technology to precisely target areas of damaged or imperfect skin, collagen remodeling to improve skin tone, texture and radiance is expedited. And, since treatment is provided to minute fractions of skin tissue at a time, there is little downtime, and rapid healing is promoted.
Fraxel laser treatment is a non-invasive method of care that does not require any injections or incisions. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before the procedure, and cold air is used during treatment to help ensure maximum patient comfort. While for a short time post-treatment, you may feel a sunburn-like feeling, this sensation typically diminishes within a few hours.
Fraxel fractional skin resurfacing treatment can be used safely and effectively for all skin types and is suitable for both men and women of all ages. Noticeable improvements are apparent soon after treatment with more becoming visible over the succeeding months as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal. While often used on the face, Fraxel treatments can also be performed on the neck, chest, arms, legs, and back.
