About Fraxel

My name is Maria. I've been working in the cosmetic field for the past 13 years. I love what I do, taking care of my patients by providing an effective treatment and educating them, as well as providing excellent customer service is my passion. 

Fraxel is a mild laser resurfacing. What Fraxel does on your skin is actually creating these microscopic openings on your skin. When you injure your skin, you're gonna start producing elastin as well as collagen. 

Five to seven days is usually the recovery time that the patient is gonna experience. You're gonna notice that your skin is gonna start exfoliating by the second day after the procedure. Fraxel is a very effective treatment when it comes to treating fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars. The laser works the best on patients with lighter skin complexion. Fraxel laser tries to get the superficial layer of the skin, as well as the deeper skin layer.
