What is a fraxel?

The simplified name of fractional photothermolysis is fraxel by
the name of the laser apparatus Fraxel. The device was so
claimed that soon the procedure based on it became associated
with the device itself. Technology based on
the technique is just as innovative as the effect that it


Fractional photothermolysis is a hardware procedure based on
laser energy, which is able to effectively rejuvenate the skin of the face.
Unlike other laser techniques, fraxel is capable of
effect on the skin, penetrating the entire perimeter of the face.
A lot of thin crushed laser rays penetrating into the deep layers
skin, provide it with heat, destroying damaged cells as
epidermis and dermis. The result is a recovery
skin due to the formation of new young cells. This procedure
stimulates the regeneration and renewal of the skin. During
the procedure is completely intact the upper layer of the emidermis,
which suggests that the barrier – protective functions of the skin do not
violated. This is due to the optimal ratio
treated and untreated skin. In this way,
the treated fabric is 15–25%, and the untreated one is 75–85%. AT
the result is young, smooth skin without wrinkles, blemishes and atony.

This technology allows you to very effectively eliminate traces.
insolation (pigmentation) on the face. Every cosmetologist knows well
how difficult it is to remove age spots so as not to cause them
occurrence. Fractional photothermolysis penetrating deep layers
skin, heats and destroys melanocytes (skin cells that produce
pigment melanin). Healthy cells are not affected.

What is the essence of fractional photothermolysis

This procedure provides a powerful and very effective.
stimulation of epithelial cells, regeneration and remodeling of the skin, which
in the complex provides skin rejuvenation.

The essence of the procedure is the vaporization (evaporation) of water in
cells using laser energy that perforates thousands of times
skin, creating its uniform thermal damage. Laser
the device generates radiation that damages the skin, but in
it also allows her to recover quickly. During the procedure
the laser beam with a special nozzle “broken” into
several thin tufts that cause thermal damage to the skin.
Thus, point therapeutic zones are formed, thanks to
which is the restoration and renewal of the skin, other
in words, her rejuvenation. A young
tissue whose cells are activated and strengthened begin

In the zones of thermal damage, the active process begins.
regeneration of fibroblasts that trigger collagen synthesis,
elastin and hyaluronic acid. The healing power of the laser makes
to activate not only damaged skin, but also on the fabric
Around them. Under the influence of high temperatures, they are regenerated
and rejuvenate.

Such thermal damage to the skin is perfectly safe even for
delicate areas of the face, but its impact is enough for quick
restoration and rejuvenation of the skin. Response to
controlled trauma to the skin becomes a whole complex
regenerating processes.

Different types of skin are required to eliminate various skin defects.
laser. Serious skin defects such as striae, deep
age wrinkles, scars and post acne scars need deep
exposure to the skin carbon dioxide (CO2) laser.

With uneven skin surfaces, extensive pigmentation is necessary.
erbium laser energy.

As a rule, fractional rejuvenation is carried out on several
laser apparatus. This combination of laser systems
provides the best effect from the procedure. Since the devices,
designed for laser rejuvenation are quite complex in
exploitation, then there is a need to choose a competent
specialist. So how to adjust the correct wavelength, its power,
laser exposure zone and temperature conditions can only
licensed specialist, passed a special course

What can be improved with fractional photothermolysis?

Using this technique, the following positive effects occur.

  • restoration of elasticity and smoothness of the skin;
  • improvement in complexion;
  • skin leveling;
  • elimination of mimic wrinkles;
  • reducing deep wrinkles;
  • narrowing of pores;
  • removal of pigment spots of any origin;
  • elimination and alignment of traces of post-acne, scars, scars and
    stretch marks.

Benefits of the procedure

The fractional photothermolysis procedure has the following

  • powerful anti-aging effect;
  • the duration of the effect after the procedure;
  • painless procedure;
  • no age restrictions;
  • non-invasive procedure;
  • lack of anesthesia;
  • the absence of infectious infections;
  • the method is suitable for the correction of delicate skin around the eyes, neck,
    décolleté and skin brushes;
  • no serious side effects and complications;
  • the result of replacements after the first procedures;
  • short rehabilitation period;
  • increasing effect, after each procedure, the skin looks all
    better and better.

Contraindications to the procedure

  • chronic and acute diseases in the acute stage;
  • skin diseases;
  • decompensated diabetes;
  • oncological and autoimmune diseases;
  • infectious diseases in the acute stage;
  • cardiovascular failure;
  • pregnancy and lactation;
  • collagenosis;
  • thrombocytopenia;
  • propensity to form keloids;
  • mental illness and epilepsy;
  • skin neoplasms;
  • tanned skin.

How to carry out the procedure

This technique does not require any special preparation for
procedure. However, it improves the course of thermal rejuvenation
biorevitalization and mesotherapy.

Also, before the procedure is recommended to follow some
rules that can prepare the skin for photothermolysis:

  • a month before the procedure and a month after avoid direct sun
  • Do not perform skin traumatic procedures before the procedure:
    chemical peels, dermabrasion;
  • use high factor sunscreen constantly
    protection (SPF not less than 30).

There are the following types of fractional photothermalization:

  • ablative;
  • non-ablative.

Each of the two methods has its merits, features,

Ablative photothermalism

This method involves the use of special laser
radiation that is absorbed by the water that is in the cells
organism. During the procedure, the skin is heated to a point.
very high temperatures (up to 300 ° C), which evaporates the excess
moisture in the skin. After the procedure, many skin remains on the skin.
microdamage. For this reason, the ablative correction method
implies a longer period of rehabilitation, but at the same time
and the best result. To achieve a greater effect is required
several sessions of this procedure. However, this method has a number of
serious drawbacks, as many
wounds that are not protected from the negative effects of
environment. In this case there is a very high risk of infection.
wounds and the development of serious complications.

Non-ablative photothermalism

This method of rejuvenating thermal energy is more
gentle. The main advantage of the method is the fact that
damage to the integrity of the skin. Laser energy
damages the middle layer of the epidermis, but does not affect
outer prickly layer. As a result, the skin does not remain
open wounds, which significantly reduces the risk of complications and
rehabilitation period. The result appears only after the course.
procedures from 5 6 sessions. Session duration is one hour. After
procedures on the patient’s skin cause cooling antiseptic
gel that soothes the skin and relieves redness.

Side effects and complications

The following side effects may occur after the procedure.

  • hyperemia of the skin;
  • swelling of the face;
  • burns;
  • inflammation of skin lesions remaining after the procedure;
  • subcutaneous hemorrhages;
  • exacerbation of acne.

Rehabilitation period

Immediately after the procedure, some
predictable side effects and complications in the form of:

  • burning and itching;
  • skin peeling;
  • edema;
  • skin swelling;
  • moderate flushing of the skin;
  • minor burn;
  • pain and discomfort;
  • dry skin;
  • microhematoma and bruises.

These phenomena quickly pass, and the skin begins
recover in two weeks. The result is
exfoliation of the upper layer of the epidermis, but do not accelerate
this process: do not peel off the crusts on their own

Do not worry about the effects of photothermolysis,
after all, even the thinnest nano-nozzle damages the holistic cover
skin. But observing some rules you can hold
recovery period with the greatest comfort.

After the procedure, fractional photothermolysis should:

  • provide special skin care, you should follow only
    recommendations of the doctor-cosmetologist;
  • wash with special water with tonics and gels without
  • do not use decorative cosmetics until complete healing
  • use special moisturizers for the skin;
  • avoid active insolation;
  • sunbathing on the beach and in the solarium is strictly forbidden;
