How does it work?
FRAXEL has a 1540 nm wavelength. It is effective on the upper and middle layer of the skin. It creates thermal columns in the skin. It eliminates the melanin pigment rich in water by breaking down when it runs into it. What makes difference in the fraxel treatment is the skin areas that are not touched by the laser. During the application, thermal columns affected by the laser are created among the intact tissues of the skin, providing much faster healing than the old technology.
