Hi Nikki, thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response.

Fraxel is an excellent technology and is indicated for rejuvenating the skin (pigment, texture, and pore improvement), wrinkle improvement, and even tightening loose skin. The results are dependent on the type of Fraxel model and the person operating the laser.

My advice would be to look at other technologies before deciding on only one such as Lumenis UltraPulse FX or even Syneron’s Matrix RF (other fractional treatments). All three treatments will offer more or less the same end treatment effect but they will differ in price, downtime, and total number of sessions required.
