Fraxel offers four levels of fractional resurfacing treatments - Re:fine, Re:store, Re:store Dual and Re:pair.
Fraxel is unique because of how the treatment actually does what it does. The laser produces thousands of tiny localized treatments known as MicroThermal Zones. These zones are what define an area that will undergo alteration and an area that will remain untouched. During the process, collagen and elastin are regenerated and about 20% of the skin is resurfaced with each session.
What makes Fraxel special is its ability to bypass healthy, living skin cells and touch only those cells that require re-growth. This level of precision makes the procedure safe, reliable and worth the big bucks it's going cost. The "fractional" treatment area is what makes the healing process work so quickly. Instead of the body facing a large portion of skin to re-grow, it can focus on smaller areas.
Fraxel is FDA cleared for periorbital wrinkles, pigmented lesions, Melasma, soft tissue coagulation, acne scars and surgical scars, actinic Keratoses
ActiveFX by Lumenis
ActiveFX is a fractional laser procedure performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time.
With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin's surface is treated by the laser, leaving small "bridges" of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.
SmartXide Dot Therapy
Transform Your Patients, Transform Your Practice�with DOT Therapy!
The SmartXide DOT� laser with DOT Therapy� is ideal for the treatment of dyschromia, skin laxity and texture, wrinkles, dermal lesions, photoaging, acne scarring and scar reduction.
SmartXide Dot Therapy is a revolutionary laser skin resurfacing method that has recently been approved by the FDA for use in the United States. Like traditional laser resurfacing, SmartXide Dot uses a CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser to reduce such things as wrinkles, acne scars, redness and sun damage. But what sets SmartXide Dot apart from traditional resurfacing methods is its unique ability to treat specific areas within a target zone, as opposed to the entire face, using a new technology that splits the laser beam into fine micro beams. This results in faster healing and no downtime for the patient. In fact, patients can apply make-up directly following a SmartXide Dot treatment. An added benefit of the SmartXide Dot method is that skin is tightened up to 20 percent, and can actually be seen tightening during the procedure. Full results are typically noticed within two to four treatment sessions, held two to four weeks apart. Improvements should continue to be seen for six months following the final session.
Used for Treating:
* Fine Lines and Wrinkles * Deeper Lines * Acne * Rosacea * Acne Scarring * Ageing Skin
The Palomar LUX 1540 Fractional Laser Handpiece delivers light in an array of high precision microbeams. These microbeams create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation that penetrate well below the epidermis and into the dermis, while sparing the tissue surrounding the columns from damage.
The Palomar LUX 1540 microbeams penetrate deeper (up to 1 mm) than other devises. These deep columns of coagulated tissue initiate a natural healing process that accelerates the formation of new, healthy tissue to fill in the damaged treatment zones; the deeper the columns, the more new tissue. Coagulated collagen and cellular debris is expelled as skin is resurfaced. Throughout the process, the integrity of the top layer of skin is maintained, which protects the tissue from infection as it heals.

Pixel Laser by Alma
Pixel is a fractional ablative laser that represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing: it combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the patient comfort level and convenience of a non-ablative approach.
Skin resurfacing with the Pixel is a gradual process that happens over several treatments, usually 3-5 sessions at 2-4 week intervals.
Now you can get a laser peel, which gives the best results available, without the pain or down time associated with lasers in the past. Pixel allows you to go right back to work the same day, and is pain free.
The Pixel Laser can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands - a much wider scope than traditional ablative technologies.
Designed to treat aged and photo-damaged skin, the Pixel improves the quality and texture of the dermis while it stimulates collagen regeneration.
New! Fractionated CO2 Skin Resurfacing System
Fractionated CO2 Skin Resurfacing System
Alma Lasers' stand-alone fractional ablative CO2 solution, the Pixel�®CO2, represents the best of both worlds for skin resurfacing. It combines the proven effectiveness of an ablative approach with the patient comfort level and convenience that approaches a non-ablative solution.
Affirm by Cynosure
Laser treatments are taken to the next level with the Combined Apex Pulse (CAP) technology in the Affirm system. The Affirm is a fractional light energy device that allows for a more relaxed and effective treatment with longer lasting results for patients.
A topical anesthetic may be applied prior to treatment, however, a majority of patients do not find it necessary to apply the anesthetic and opt to proceed with treatment without using this option.
Benefits of Affirm Treatments
Most all skin types can be treated effectively with very little to no downtime post treatment. The Affirm works by micro-pulses of light to the dermis to aid in collagen stimulation, correction of wrinkles and acne scars, and photo-aging. The side effects from treatment are mild redness that usually resolves in just a few hours and some clients may report some mild puffiness and swelling that quickly resolves.
When will results be seen?
A series of 3-6 treatment sessions is typical depending on the type and severity of the condition being treated. It usually takes about 3-8 weeks after the first session to start seeing results. Many clients state they are experiencing overall skin tightness and clarity with their first treatment.
Matrix IR Fractional by Syneron
The Matrix IR Fractional Technology has just been introduced by Syneron, and is the only fractional laser to combine fractional optical energy with radio frequency for deep dermal heating for effective treatment of wrinkles. The collagen remodeling caused by Matrix IR treatments is designed for maximum penetration for consistent and effective treatment of wrinkles.
Matrix IR creates micro-thermal bands of heating while leaving the surrounding tissue in tact which in turn act as a "healing reservoir" for the thermally damaged tissue. The premise is that undamaged tissue works to promote quicker healing while ensuring there is limited or no patient downtime.
The ProFractional is called the Complete Fractional Solution by the manufacturer, the ProFractional utilizes a 2940 nm laser for ablative resurfacing in a single pass. As one of the few 2940 nm ablative fractional procedures, the Pro-Fractional instantly ablates the hot debris from tissue, reducing pain and irritation, and speeding recovery. ProFractional can selectively treat upto 60% of the skin area in a single pass for fast treatments.
ProFractional quickly and effective effectively treats in a single pass:
