A Fraxel treatment won't tighten skin the same way as standard ablative treatment
You bring up a good topic. Initially, a company developed a delivery device - Fraxel - that did micro-ablation.
The topic became "hot" and now many companies provide a micro-ablative product. The two current energy wavelengths are erbium and CO2. Both can provide a good result in the right hands. The goal is to provide a shorter recovery which is correct. However, a single "fraxel" treatment does not provide the same type of skin tightening that a standard "ablative" treatment can with either wavelength.
