What is fractional laser treatment?

A fractional laser treatment is a skin treatment that uses a fraxel laser (or similar laser) to create microscopic holes into your skin which cause new collagen and elastin to start working or fixing the holes and, overall, improve your skin quality. This laser treatment can improve a multitude of skin flaws to give youthful, radiant & beautiful skin all over.

What is involved with the treatment?

After you have received your mandatory consultation and have been approved for fraxel laser treatments you will enter the treatment area where we will cleanse your skin to remove any dead skin cells. Then, you will receive the fraxel laser treatment which lasts about 15-20 minutes. After the treatment, we will administer a sun protection factor to protect your skin from sun exposure.

Is fraxel laser painful?

No, fraxel lasers aren’t painful but you will experience a mild tingling feeling that might be a little discomforting to some. After the treatment, it isn’t uncommon to experience some pain in the treatment area. This is a perfectly normal side effect and it shouldn’t worry you.

What can I expect post-treatment?

You can expect to see an improvement in skin quality, almost immediately, after the treatment. After your first fraxel treatment you can expect some mild bruising and mild pain in the treatment area but, as mentioned above, this is perfectly normal.


For the first few days after the fraxel treatment, you should avoid sun exposure so you can avoid the following:

  • Hot showers
  • Spas
  • Too much sun exposure
  • Anything that might make you sweat a lot

If you are scheduled for multiple laser treatments, you will need to wait at least four weeks before your skin is ready for another fraxel laser treatment.
