What is the difference between Fraxel and Fractional laser treatments?

Fractional Laser Treatments
Fraxel laser is the brand name of a laser by Solta Medical. Fraxel uses fractionated technology and has different version for different skin types and conditions.
Dual: Targets, tone, texture and more superficial signs of aging, actinic keratosis and pigment.
Restore: Penetrates deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring.
Fraxel CO2- Ablative (wounding):
Repair 600m: Treats fine lines, age spots and sun spots.
Repair 135m: Used to target deeper wrinkles, tighten skin and remove years from your appearance.
I believe that Fraxel is the gold standard laser for fractional technology and I own all of the above mentioned versions. Fraxel is the most popular laser procedure in my office for both skin rejuvenation and acne scar treatment.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which Fraxel version is best for you.

Fraxel versus Fractional Laser
Fraxel laser is a type of fractionated laser. Fraxel laser has done a significant amount of research and development. Not all fractional lasers are alike. I have found the Fraxel laser results superior to other lasers but as in all things it is user and technique dependent. For the best results please contact a board certified physician with a great deal of experience with lasers.
