Understanding Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure designed to revitalize the skin by addressing a variety of concerns, including aging signs, sun damage, and specific facial conditions like acne scars, spider veins, and age spots. Using advanced laser technology, this method effectively targets different layers of skin, stimulating collagen production and initiating a healing response that leads to a more youthful and refreshed appearance. The Fraxis PRO, with its cutting-edge fractional laser and RF microneedling technology, stands out in this field for its ability to deliver comprehensive and effective treatments, offering a significant improvement in skin texture and tone.
Fraxis PRO Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Dr. Frankel was allowed to be the first practitioner to employ the Fraxis PRO because of his status as a Key Opinion Leader. Fraxis PRO takes a non-conventional approach to skin revitalization by uniquely combining two clinically proven technologies in a single device.
It is the first machine to combine microneedling and CO2 laser skin resurfacing for the treatment of varying thicknesses of the layers of the skin. The energy applied stimulates collagen and hyaluronic acid production and changes the skin structure to one that is more youthful.
The combination of RF microneedling and CO2 laser provides customizable options for patients who want limited downtime as well as those who want aggressive therapy.
Fraxis Pro uses a microneedling system that delivers bi-polar radio frequency energy between the needles at selective skin depths with varying intensities. With the use of two types of needles (insulated and non-insulated), the device can deliver a depth of RF energy that heats the deeper layers from .5mm-3.5mm.
The insulated needles can concentrate the energy at the tip, while the non-insulated needles can deliver energy to the entire depth. These features facilitate treating all skin types and reduce downtime, discomfort, and complications.
Fraxis PRO also features a high-powered fractional CO2 laser scanner to deliver stable, uniform energy in short pulses. Fractional CO2 laser has proven to be an essential tool for treating skin by resurfacing the top layer in a manner such that a fraction of the skin’s surface area is left intact, which allows for faster healing and fewer side effects than those associated with the fully ablative lasers of the past.
Its small beam size minimizes downtime, reduces the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and provides optimal results. This fractional CO2 component can be used very conservatively or more aggressively depending on the specific needs.
Candidates for Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Ideal candidates for Laser Skin Rejuvenation are individuals seeking to improve their skin’s appearance, specifically targeting issues such as brown spots, spider veins, sun spots, and fine lines. This treatment is particularly beneficial for those who have experienced skin damage due to sun exposure or aging and are looking to reduce the appearance of acne scars and age spots. Potential patients must consult with a qualified plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon, who will evaluate their skin type, medical history, and aesthetic goals to determine if they are suitable candidates for this procedure, ensuring the chosen treatment aligns with their unique skin needs.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Fraxis Pro Vs Traditional CO2 Laser and Microneedling
It allows for more complete skin rejuvenation with less downtime. Fraxis Pro is the ONLY device that combines the two treatments. By layering CO2 laser energy with radio frequency microneedling, an incredible range of skin conditions can be treated in a single session by utilizing the modalities alone or in combination.
The RF microneedling can remodel the dermis’s deeper layer) of the skin without injuring the epidermis (surface). Thus, rather than using CO2 to treat the entire thickness of the skin, it can be applied more specifically to the surface with greater coverage and less intensity.
This combination results in a more comprehensive revitalization of all the skin layers with less redness, crusting, discomfort, and associated risks. Treatments can be customized based on the specific types of skin as well as the types of conditions to be treated.
This Cutera component treats the surface of the skin and can be used conservatively or more aggressively depending on the patient’s needs.
DR. FRANKEL’S NOTES
What does Fraxis Pro treat?
Dr. Frankel uses Fraxis Pro to treat a range of conditions including the following:
- Sun damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crepiness or mild sagginess
- Uneven pigmentation
- Stretch marks
- Large pores
- Scars from acne, trauma, prior surgery, or other causes
Can Fraxis PRO be used to keep my skin from sagging?
One wonderful application of RF microneedling is to help impede the aging process on the skin. The new collagen formation simulated by the treatments serves to make the skin more firm and tighter. The histologic changes that result from these treatments are longstanding, if not permanent improvements.
Consultation for Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
The consultation process for Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a critical step in achieving successful outcomes. During this session, a skilled plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon will conduct a thorough examination of your skin, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic objectives. This evaluation helps in selecting the most effective treatment approach, ensuring it is tailored to your individual skin type and condition. The versatility of the Fraxis PRO device, which combines fractional laser with RF microneedling, allows for a highly customizable treatment plan. The surgeon will also discuss the expected recovery time and any necessary aftercare to ensure optimal healing and results.
What to expect during the Laser Skin Rejuvenation procedure?
Most treatments can be done with topical anesthesia alone, however, there are exceptions where injections or medications might be desirable. After sitting for thirty minutes with the anesthetic cream on the areas to be treated, you will be cleaned and placed in the treatment room chair. Protective eyewear will be placed to guard your eyes from the light of the laser.
Dr. Frankel will then treat the areas of concern beginning with the RF microneedling followed up with the CO2 if indicated. Depending on the size of the area being treated, your procedure to take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
What to expect during your recovery from Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatment?
As a rule, recovery from Fraxis PRO treatments is associated with little downtime and discomfort. If your treatment is limited to the use of the RF microneedling component the downtime is only one to three days. If the CO2 is also utilized, then the period of redness, swelling, and stinging can persist for six to seven days.
With the addition of the CO2 laser, you can also expect some sloughing and flakiness within those first few days. This is completely normal and is how your body heals itself after the procedure to deliver brighter-looking skin.

Risks of Laser Skin Rejuvenation
While Laser Skin Rejuvenation with the Fraxis PRO device is generally safe, patients should be aware of potential complications. Common side effects of laser skin rejuvenation include temporary redness, swelling, and sensitivity, similar to other cosmetic procedures. Specific risks associated with laser treatments can range from skin irritation to changes in pigmentation. For individuals with certain medical histories, like a tendency for cold sores, there might be an increased risk of flare-ups post-treatment. The advanced technology of Fraxis PRO minimizes these risks through precision and customizable settings, but it’s still important for patients to thoroughly discuss their medical history with their plastic surgeon.
Another consideration is post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, particularly in patients with darker skin tones, where excess melanin production may lead to dark spots. The fractional laser technology of Fraxis PRO significantly reduces this risk by allowing for controlled and even distribution of laser energy. Post-treatment, the skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure, necessitating stringent sun protection to ensure optimal healing. Adherence to post-treatment care instructions, including skincare and sun protection, is crucial in reducing risks and enhancing the treatment’s effectiveness.
What is the average cost of laser skin rejuvenation?
The cost of laser skin rejuvenation varies significantly based on a range of factors. These factors include the complexity of the individual’s skin condition, the extent of the area being treated, the specific treatment protocol (such as the use of RF microneedling, CO2 laser, or a combination of both), and the number of sessions required to achieve desired results.
Geographic location also plays a crucial role in determining the price. For instance, undergoing treatment in a high-end area like Beverly Hills may command a premium price due to the location’s prestige and the potentially higher operational costs of clinics in such locales.
Generally, prices for a single session of laser skin rejuvenation can range from around $500 to approximately $2500. However, comprehensive treatments that require multiple sessions for optimal results can significantly increase the total investment.
