What is Fraxel Laser?
Fraxel Laser is a cutting-edge skin resurfacing treatment that can help to reduce many of the common skin imperfections that can appear on our faces and hands, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, scars, open pores and sun damage.
Fraxel uses an incredibly precise laser beam that penetrate deep into the epidermis targeting the damaged and old skin cells. This innovative laser treatment triggers the production of new collagen enhancing skin cell regeneration in order to remove damaged or pigmented skin and reveal a youthful, brighter and more even complexion.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our Treatment Coordinators to discuss your treatment options.

What to expect from Fraxel Laser?
The Fraxel Laser is a handheld device that delivers microscopic beams of laser light to a precise depth, into the deeper layers of the epidermis. Directly after your treatment, your skin may appear red and swollen and you may experience a ‘sunburn’ sensation. This is completely normal and to be expected. The skin on the treated areas will then proceed to gently peel, revealing the new, healthy skin below.
Which areas can be treated with Fraxel Laser?
Fraxel Laser treatment is a safe and very precise form of laser treatment and can therefore be used on the face, neck, décolletage and hands to help repair damaged skin. It is a suitable solution for both male and female patients.

Fraxel Laser Step by Step
1 NO OBLIGATORY CONSULTATION
Your first step will be a complimentary consultation with our highly experienced Treatment Coordinators. Your full medical history will be taken and you will have the time to discuss your beauty goals and expectations. After having a thorough discussion about the treatment if you decide to proceed with Fraxel Laser, your Treatment Coordinator will book you in for a complimentary patch test.
2 MEET YOUR Practitioner
Prior to the treatment you will meet your Practitioner to get a complimentary patch test. This test will not only ensure there are no side effects but is also a chance to get an idea of the treatment. Your Practitioner will be the one to decide whether you are the right candidate for Fraxel depending on the results of the test. If you are, then your next appointment for the full treatment will be booked.
3 DURING THE TREATMENT
Initially, your Practitioner will apply numbing cream to the treatment areas to ensure your comfort. Fraxel Laser involves a handheld laser device that emits microscopic columns of laser at a precise deep level underneath the skin’s surface. It is ideal for treating a fraction of area each time leaving the rest of the tissue untouched. As soon as the laser beam touches your skin your body’s natural healing process will be kick-started resulting in the production of new collagen.
4 AFTER THE TREATMENT
After the treatment you should expect redness, sensitivity and a sunburn sensation. Over the next few days your skin will start to peel off, shedding all the dead cells and replacing them with brand new ones. Your Practitioner will advise you on the homecare and type of products you should use after the treatment.
