Should I only use a doctor for Fraxel laser that is listed on

I have been using a dermatologist that has the fraxel laser but they are not listed on the website. Is this a bad thing?

Fractional laser

Many different types of fraxel or fractional laser exist.  Check with your provider to be certain they are certified in their fraxel technology.  

At our practice we are certified on Syneron-Candela Sublative Fractional RF for non-ablative resurfacing and skin tightening and are listed on Syneron-Candela's web site as providers.  There is minimal downtime and multiple treatments can be performed on different areas such as face, neck, chest and hands.

Our fractional technology treats fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, acne scars, tone and texture.  The radio frequency enhances the benefit of the treatment by improving tightness and elasticity to the skin.

In addition to the Sublative Fractional RF, we have the Sublime handpiece for jowls and lower face skin tightening and improved laxity and IPL Photofacials for redness, rosacea and brown spots.  Treatments can be performed all together and are called Triniti-Plus.

Hope this helps.  Good luck.

Fraxel laser treatment

Most physicians who have had Fraxel training from the company will be listed on the website, but sometimes, there may be an omission.  Your dermatologist may have had the training but does not know that he/she is not listed.  Ask your dermatologist about his/her experience with the Fraxel laser and if you have been happy with your results, continue there.

Fraxel and authorized user

One of the good things about using someone that has been authorized and trained by Fraxel is that you have the confidence that they know what they are doing.  These lasers should be used by trained medical physicians.  Best, Dr. Green
