Fractional Skin Resurfacing, also known as Fraxel®, is a non-ablative laser procedure used to remove signs of aging, scarring, and diminish sun damaged.
Fractional Skin Resurfacing works through the breakup of laser energy into micro beams that only treat a portion of the skin’s surface. These micro beams create columns of energy into the affected area and destroy the tissue that extend through the epidermis to the dermis and the following healing produces new skin that looks and feels softer, smoother and younger looking skin.

Fractional Skin Resurfacing can feel like a rubber band “snap”. It may be slightly uncomfortable varying on each patient’s pain tolerance. There is minimal downtime with Fractional Skin Resurfacing. You can experience redness and swelling to treated areas for up to 5 days.
You may also experience a bronzed look once the redness subsides for approximately 3-14 days and the bronzed skin may peel off revealing fresh new skin. Ask a Danik practitioner about our S.O.S. Post Laser skin regimen to reduce redness and swelling, and help with the healing process.
