Is Fraxel the same as fractional laser?

Is Fraxel the same as fractional laser?

The most common fractional resurfacing lasers are the Fraxel Laser and the Fractional CO2 Laser. The main difference between these two lasers is that the Fraxel laser is non-ablative, while the Fractional CO2 laser ablates the skin’s surface as it delivers its energy.

Is Fraxel the best laser treatment?

Fraxel lasers have proven effective in treating a broad range of conditions such as sun damage, mild to medium acne scarring, crepey skin around the eyes, and precancerous spots.

Is there anything better than Fraxel?

Effectiveness. Both treatments deliver noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture. However, because microneedling does not penetrate the deep layers of the skin, it is better suited to mild skin problems, and the results are typically less dramatic than Fraxel.

What kind of laser is a Fraxel Laser?

Fraxel is a brand of fractional lasers — and there are 3 kinds of Fraxel lasers — one non-ablative (Fraxel reStore) and one ablative (Fraxel rePair). Both, as noted, are fractional lasers. The Fraxel brand has done well and there are many exceptional non-ablative fractional lasers and many exceptional ablative fractional lasers.

What’s the difference between a fractional and ablative laser?

Fraxel is a brand name of a fractional laser. Fraxel is the brand name of the first fractional lasers that was available. Since then, other fractional lasers have become available. Fractional lasers are in general ablative, which means that they vaporize skin on the surface, removing the top-most layers of the skin.

Which is better, a fractional laser or a fractora?

Both Fractora and Morpheus8 can also address a broader range of issues in comparison with Fraxel and patients report results are comparable or better than fractional lasers. How Many Treatments Are Necessary?

What’s the difference between Fraxel and radiofrequency?

Laser vs Radiofrequency Technologies. The Fraxel and Fractora devices both use fractional technologies, at different wavelengths, to achieve results. Fraxel lasers use light energy to prompt collagen production, whereas Fractora uses radiofrequency energy (RF) to stimulate the regenerative process. Fractora can be used on all skin types safely.
