Fractional Laser Skin Treatments

The treatment quickly rejuvenates your face, correcting scars, smoothing wrinkles and treating other imperfections in the skin. Dr. Sheena Kong is pleased to offer Fraxel re:store treatment at her San Francisco practice.

What Does the Fraxel Laser Treat?

The Fraxel laser is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat the following:

  • Wrinkles around your eyes
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Actinic keratosis (precancerous lesions)
  • Skin resurfacing

Suitable Fraxel Candidates

Fraxel re:store laser treatment is appropriate for patients in their 30s who have noticed early signs of wrinkles, those in their 60s or older who have deeper lines and skin laxity, and anyone in between. Fraxel also works well on all skin colors, including African-American, Latino and Asian skin types. It may be safely used on the neck, chest, hands and body.

Fraxel Treatment Sessions

During a Fraxel treatment session, Dr. Kong directs the Fraxel laser at your desired treatment area. The laser beam delivers tiny columns of light (about 1/10 the diameter of a hair follicle) that create tiny wounds deep within the dermis layer of your skin; this triggers your body’s natural healing response system, expediting the remodeling of collagen and elastin. Damaged skin is replaced with younger, smoother and healthier-looking skin.

Because the treatment is so precise, the laser columns target only a fraction of your skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your skin to heal more quickly than if the entire area were treated at once.

A series of three to six treatments is recommended for the best outcomes.

Benefits of Fraxel Treatment

Fraxel renews the beauty of your skin by enhancing its tone and texture, erasing unwanted brown sports, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving the appearance of scars. Fraxel treatment is very quick, so you can return to your normal activities the day after treatment. The results appear very quickly and you will enjoy a renewed sense of self-confidence with the outcome.
