FRAXEL is has the ability to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of the skin, using pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skins surface to remove old, damaged skin cells. FRAXEL stimulates the body’s own natural healing process, which replaces damaged skin, with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
