Fraxel C02 Laser Offers Anti Aging Results in 10 Days or Less

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 7, 2008

Reducing the signs of aging with facial treatments such as microdermabrasion and dermal fillers can provide temporary results, but innovative procedures such as Fraxel C02 show more promise for those who want to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles for the long-term.

Recent trends in anti-aging cosmetic surgery indicate that Fraxel lasers, an intensive skin resurfacing treatment can target key areas of the face that are showing signs of premature aging, and the treatment can also address problems such as acne scars, pigmented skin and deeper wrinkles.  The Fraxel C02 Re:pair system is becoming so popular that many people are foregoing the traditional facelift in favor of a laser treatment. The procedure improvements in the skin over time, and some patients see a noticeable difference immediately with dramatic improvements in just ten days.

Dr. Michael Perskey, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Encino, California provides some insights on Fraxel in a recent interview:

Fractional CO2 laser skin rejuvenation is where facial cosmetic surgery is heading for at least the next ten years…The advantage of Fraxel re:pair over the current similar lasers and the many to soon be released is Fraxel’s research over the past 4 years.Fraxel is the only laser that is applied to the skin in a continuous roller fashion while all other laser use a “stamping” application that is less consistent, only more time consuming. Fraxel is the technology that other laser companies are racing to match. (Source:

Fraxel laser treatments typically cost between $3,000 – $8,000 depending on the location of the doctor and number of treatments required.  The procedure has been deemed as ‘safe’ by many board-certified cosmetic surgeons and is FDA-approved;  can help even help treat younger patients who want to ward off the signs of aging and maintain their youthful look.
