Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Fraxel Re:Store® laser system is considered one of the best available treatments for non-ablative fractional laser skin resurfacing of the face, neck, chest, and hands. Although there are several different Fraxel procedures currently available to target different skin problems, Fraxel Re:Store is the original and most popular one. Fraxel Re:Store resurfaces damaged skin to reveal younger, more refreshed skin, improving the appearance of wrinkles, scars and age spots through a simple procedure with minimal downtime. At Gwinnett Dermatology we are proud to offer laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel Re:Store® to our patients in Braselton, Loganville, Snellville, and Brookhaven, GA.
The advanced Fraxel technology offers deeper dermal laser penetration (depths up to 1.6mm) than traditional treatments and is delivered by laser pulses in fractional patterns. The laser vaporizes tiny columns of tissue on the skin’s surface, stimulating the body’s natural skin cell and collagen regenerative responses.
Because of its minuscule size, the Fraxel laser does not damage surrounding healthy tissue, allowing for rapid healing to only the targeted area.

What Happens During Fraxel Laser Treatment?
Fraxel Re:store is a true nonsurgical alternative to more invasive surgical and resurfacing procedures, as it significantly reduces the risks and recovery time associated with facelifts and other resurfacing procedures. Fraxel can also be considered a potential preventative treatment, as it often eliminates the need for a facelift.
Fraxel Re:Pair SST treatment is an ablative procedure that uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to vaporize microscopic columns of tissue deep within the skin. Fraxel re:pair SST treatment is a more aggressive procedure and is used to treat the most severe signs of skin damage.
Results Of Laser Skin Resurfacing
Results are achieved in 1-2 treatments and wound care recovery time (usually 5-7 days) is generally longer than other Fraxel treatments. Fraxel non-ablative treatments can improve mild to moderate skin damage with little to no downtime.
