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 ›
