Fraxel is an FDA-approved laser treatment intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin pigmentation,  sun damage, acne, stretch marks, and, in some cases, the pre-cancerous skin condition actinic keratosis (AK). A handheld device is passed across the skin, sending laser light energy below the surface. This energy stimulates your body's natural production of collagen, rejuvenating the cells and smoothing the skin on the surface. LEARN MORE ›

62 Years Old with Acentic Keratosis

Went to the term for my AK on nose and cheeks, and was told Fraxel would not only solve it but as a bonus it would get rid of brown spots, even skin tone, reduce fine lines and even help with sagging neck because it would regenerate new cells. Sounds too good to be true so I should have known... READ MORE
