If you are looking for a way to lift your looks without going under the knife, La Jolla Laser Cosmetic Center offers a wide variety of treatments and procedures to rejuvenate your skin and body, restoring a youthful, healthy appearance. Fraxel® treatments rejuvenate your skin’s texture and tone. We recommend Fraxel® in San Diego, Encinitas, La Mesa, El Cajon, and surrounding areas of California, for all men and women who have sun damage, signs of aging, acne scars, and other skin flaws.

What is a Fraxel Laser?

We use the latest Fraxel Laser system, the Fraxel DUAL, which provides selective treatments for both resurfacing and/or superficial pigmentation. The Fraxel Dual is a platform for two separate lasers – the Fraxel Restore Erbium laser, and the new Thulium wavelength for superficial pigmentation. One major advantage of fractional laser resurfacing is that it can be used not only on the face but also on many areas of the body. This state-of-the-art advanced procedure is a “Total Body Laser.”  

What are the benefits of a Fraxel Laser?

A San Diego & La Jolla Fraxel Laser treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the dermis. It is also safe on all skin types. We can treat a variety of conditions all over the body to improve skin appearance on the chest, arms, hands, upper back, and even the legs:

  • Pigmentation: freckles, age spots, sun damage and Melasma
  • Texture: wrinkles, enlarged pores, rough skin, actinic keratoses
  • Scars: acne scars, surgical scars
  • Tightens: subtly builds collagen in response to the laser thermal effects

Who are the best candidates for a Fraxel Laser?

The best candidates for a Fraxel Laser treatment in La Jolla and San Diego are patients with backgrounds that include southern hemisphere countries, Asia, and the Middle East all have potential higher risk. For this reason, we require patients with those ethnic skin types to prepare their skin properly. Our medical staff will determine your potential suitability. All FRAXEL treatments are performed by our trained laser staff using topical anesthetics and blocks. 

What’s the first step?

The first step to getting a Fraxel Laser treatment is to call us for a complimentary consultation. The consultation is a crucial element of your treatment, as it allows the doctor to assess your desired outcomes and your skin problems, and give you a realistic idea of how we can help you. The consultation also allows you to share any concerns you may have, ask questions, and have peace of mind about getting the treatment. Based on what is discussed, our Patient Coordinator will be able to schedule your first session and provide you with the necessary instructions to follow before your first treatment.


What to expect on the day of a Fraxel Laser treatment

After filling out the paperwork, our staff will take you into the treatment room to prepare for the procedure. The technician will walk you through the process and tools they will use, before applying a numbing gel if it is needed. 

The Fraxel Thulium is a pigment-specific laser that is typically used once, with more difficult cases requiring a second session. The process typically is completed over seven days. Epidermal pigmentation from sun exposure, epidermal melasma, and some levels of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are ideal problems to be alleviated by the Fraxel Thulium laser. However, certain skin types require a preparatory period during which patients will use topical pigment suppressors to prevent bounce-back hyperpigmentation.

Fraxel Laser recovery

Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after treatment or the next day.

You must completely avoid the sun for the first few days and take extra care to protect your skin from more damage Required is SPF 30-plus sunscreen and applied twice a day. Talk to one of our staff members about our medical-grade sunblock and post-laser skin treatments.

Makeup use or shaving is usually permitted once the treated skin columns are healed. This is usually within a day or two but is dependent upon your level of treatment.
