What is Fraxel® Laser Treatment?
This unique approach allows for dramatic cosmetic improvement without the prolonged downtime and discomfort of traditional techniques. It is so gentle that it can be used on the neck, chest, and hands. After treatment, your skin will look rejuvenated, healthy, younger, and more vibrant.

How is Fraxel® Laser Treatment Performed?
All Fraxel® treatments are performed right here in our Maumee office. The treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied. Once this ointment has taken effect – within about 60 to 90 minutes – a trained Fraxel® technician will administer the laser treatment to help rejuvenate the skin. The procedure shouldn’t take more than 20 to 25 minutes, and once complete, the topical anesthetic will be removed.
Preparing for Your Fraxel® Laser Treatment ProcedureFor proper preparation, you will be given a thorough overview from the physician on what you should be doing to ensure the best results. If you smoke, you should stop for two weeks prior to the procedure so you can heal better, and you can avoid post-surgical complication risks.
Fraxel® Laser Treatment RecoveryThe Fraxel® treatment targets the deeper layer of the skin – the dermis – so your outer, epidermis layer will remain undamaged. You may experience some redness, reminiscent of a sunburn. You should treat it as such, keeping skin moisturized and out of the sun. Your old skin cells will soon slough off, making way for new skin and collagen to develop. You’ll be able to return to daily activities immediately, and makeup may be worn to cover up any redness. Keep in mind that every patient’s skin is different, so if you notice any unusual or painful side effects, contact your doctor immediately.
How Much Does a Fraxel® Laser Treatment Procedure Cost?
