Remarkable results with nearly all patients seeing improvement with each treatment due to collagen remodeling.

Great safety record on all skin types, on and off the face.

Minimal disruption to your daily routine. Treat on Friday, back to work on Monday.

The Fraxel treatment works great when combined with the Thermage CPT procedure

How does it work?
