Results you can feel and improvement that you will see! Fraxel is a safe non-ablative laser that is effective for all skin types. This milder laser promotes your skin’s own healing process by stimulating collagen production. The result is natural rejuvenation that improves your skin texture, removes pigmentation, and helps wipe away wrinkles around your eyes and mouth. In addition, with the brand new Fraxel Dual, you can significantly reduce, and in some cases, eliminate age-related pigmentation and sun damage spots on your face, chest, arms and hands to restore a new you.
What is Fraxel?
You can “fight back aging” and sun damage and make your skin look significantly younger with the use of Fraxel treatments. Fraxel treatments are “non-ablative” (or milder) laser treatments that will help reduce the fine lines and wrinkles on your face, neck, chest, arms, and other areas of the body. These treatments also work well for the “crepiness”, or fine lines of the skin of the lower eyelids and of the hands. This “fractional” milder laser can resurface your skin and boost collagen production to help your skin look tighter, smoother, and more evenly toned. Using a series of treatments, this laser can help minimize “laugh lines”, “crow’s feet” lines, and also help with age spots, acne, and even some surgical scarring. This laser can also allow you to follow your daily routine without the down time of more aggressive lasers.

How Does Fraxel Work?
We at the Storch Plastic Surgery Facility in Aventura are happy and proud to have the very latest Fraxel laser technology, the Fraxel Dual Apparatus. This “state of the art” Fraxel machine features the already popular Fraxel 1550 resurfacing capabilities, and then also adds an additional 1927 wavelength. This additional 1927 wavelength specifically targets pigment problems such as age or sun related spots, melisma, and many other types of abnormal pigmentation. Frequently, in just one short treatment you will see a significant improvement in the color, tone, and appearance of the skin on your face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
In addition, this laser may be used to treat precancerous lesions in the skin (actinic keratosis). It also works for extremely well for acne scarring treatment by resurfacing the skin. In just a few treatments 4-6 weeks apart you will really see a difference in the quality and texture of your skin.
Fraxel Combined with PRP
Dr. Sarraga has devised a revolutionary treatment which involves using the laser technology of Fraxel with the benefits of plasma therapy. The treatment is done in the office with topical and /or local anesthesia. While you are numbing for the procedure, blood is taken from your arm vein and prepared via high-speed centrifugation and separated using state of the art technology to provide you with platelet rich plasma. After the laser is performed, the plasma is activated and used as a topical agent and injected into your face with a fine needle. This combination not only cuts down your healing time but also gives you the long-lasting benefit of the platelet rich plasma by providing your skin with essential growth factors and stimulating stem cells. The effect of the platelet-rich-plasma can last up to six months. During your laser treatment, a high-flow chilling device is applied to your face for your comfort.
Our lasers are strictly administered by our physicians and our aestheticians will help you choose a post laser treatment regime specifically tailored to your skin and your needs. Your skin will look radiant and younger for the months to come.
