Fraxel® Laser Skin Treatment

No matter your age or skin condition, you can uncover the youthful skin you long for! The Fraxel® laser is a breakthrough skin resurfacing treatment that provides immediate removal of age spots and marks.

Fraxel is a patented laser technology that resurfaces damaged skin and promotes the production of collagen and new skin cells. This safe, effective resurfacing treatment stimulates growth of healthy new skin cells to replace old, damaged cells – turning back time on your face for the youthful look you desire. As one of Dubai’s top aesthetic and dermatology clinics, Omnicare’s providers offer skilled provision of Fraxel laser treatments.

Conditions treated:

  • Age Spots
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Wrinkles & fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Stretch marks

How does Fraxel work?

The Fraxel Dual Wavelength System targets and treats a fraction of skin tissue at a time and leaves the surrounding tissue untouched. This provides results while also promoting rapid healing. Unlike ablative laser treatments, this non-ablative treatment effectively works from the inside out. The Fraxel laser does not destroy the top layer of skin, but rather penetrates beneath it to encourage healthy cell renewal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Everyone’s skin is different, but for most people, maximum results are achieved in just 3-5 sessions. They are usually spaced 2-6 weeks apart.

While you can return to work after the treatment, you can expect around 5-7 days of downtime or reduced activity. Immediately after your treatment, your skin will be red, irritated, and possibly swollen. This can last several days. Your skin will peel, which is a sign that the treatment is working. If pigmentation is present on the skin, it may darken after treatment and last a few days before flaking away to reveal smoother, clearer skin.

Results can last for a long time, often several years, although they are not permanent. Your skin will continue to age and may need further treatments in the future.

The treatment is not painful, although you may experience mild discomfort and a prickly feeling. Numbing cream will be used to help ease any discomfort.

Treatments can be customized to your specific skin type and needs. Fraxel can use both superficial and deep laser treatment for the face, neck, chest, hands and arms. One treatment mode targets concerns such as deep wrinkles and acne scarring, while the other targets pigmentation, improves skin tone and addresses more superficial signs of ageing.
