Machine for Minimizing Pain During Fraxel Laser?

I heard there was a new machine that would minimize the pain while having Fraxel Laser. What is it called and where can I find it?

 Hi Pamela,

A Zimmer Cooler may be used during the treatment by blowing very cold air on the skin during the treatment.  Better than the machine, appropriate analgesic use before the treatment will assure that patients "tolerate" their procedure well.

Good luck and be well.

Must be the Zimmer Cooler

Patients report decrease in pain if this machine is used. It cools the skin to relieve discomfort from injections as well as lasers. I also recommend a topical anesthetic for one hour prior to treatment.
