FraxelÂ® fractionated carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments. Â Dramatic results are possible with this laser modality.
TheÂ FraxelÂ® re:pair 135 is an aggressive CO2 laser that is typically only used by an experienced plastic surgeon.Â This laser excels at treating deeper wrinkles, more severe textural changes from sun damage, wrinkles, blotchiness, acne scars, and surgical or traumatic scars. It can also be used on the delicate eyelid skin and around the mouth.
The FraxelÂ® re:pair 600Â CO2 laser uses the same technology as the FraxelÂ® 135 but with a change in how deep the laser beams penetrates the skin and how much surface area each beam covers.Â Whereas the standard FraxelÂ® 135Â laser goes deep in more narrow beams; the FraxelÂ® 600 has shallow penetration in wider beams capable of treating up to to 70% of the surface in a single treatment.
Designed for pigmentation issues, texture and tone irregularities and the hated crepy skin, the FraxelÂ® 600 treats skin types I, II and III and is suitable for treating theÂ face, neck, chest, hands and upper arms.
Dilated blood vessels (telangectasias), or that reddish blotchy discoloration on the neck (poikiloderma) are typically treated with a medical (not salon) grade IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device.
