The Fraxel SR laser is a fractionated 1550nm fiber laser that is FDA approved for treatment of sun damage, wrinkles, both acne and surgical scars, pigmented lesions and conditions like melasma. The Fraxel laser is the first and only FDA-approved non-ablative laser for skin resurfacing. The Fraxel laser's breakthrough microthermal technology targets and treats precise areas of the skin while promoting fast and natural healing. Damaged skin is repaired pixel by pixel, spot by spot with minimal downtime. There is simply nothing else like it in aesthetic medicine. Patients experience some redness and swelling for a few days but can wear makeup immediately after a treatment session. Several sessions are required to achieve the desired effect. All skin types and any surface area, including nonfacial areas, may be treated safely and effectively using fractional laser resurfacing technology when performed by a board-certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Christine Brown in Dallas, Texas.
