Our practice offers the Frax 1550, a non-ablative, minimal downtime resurfacing laser for skin rejuvenation and acne scars.
What is Frax 1550 Laser Treatment?
The Frax 1550 Laser is the newest in skin resurfacing technology. This innovative tool is a fractional non-ablative laser with high clinical efficiency to allow for more powerful skin rejuvenation by creating tiny columns of energy in the skin and thereby eliminating old pigmented cells and stimulating new collagen.
What Are the Benefits of the Frax 1550 Laser?
The new Frax 1550 laser is an exceptional, easy-to-use non-ablative laser that can be used for the following:
- Treatment of stretch marks
- Treatment of acne and acne scars
- Treatment of surgical scars
- Treatment of skin texture
- Treatment of fine lines and wrinkles
How Does the Frax 1550 Laser Work?
Frax 1550 offers a more advanced system of non-ablative laser treatments. This unique technology allows the pulse time and energy to be set independently so the width and depth of thermal damage can be controlled. This allows the procedure to be customized to each patient’s unique needs to minimize damage and maximize results. Combined with the built-in SoftCool air cooling system and magnetic motion roller, the smart design of the Frax 1550 laser helps to ensure patient comfortability and precision control during the entire procedure.

Frax 1550 is a minimal downtime procedure performed in the office. After the skin is cleansed, a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin for 30-60 minutes. Once the skin is ready, the treatment will take 30-60 minutes depending on the area treated. There is mild discomfort and warmth during the treatment as the energy is applied. After the treatment, the skin is cooled and sunscreen is applied. It is recommended to minimize sun exposure after treatment to enhance results. The skin may remain pink for a day or two after the treatment depending on the settings used.
Typically a series of four to six treatments are recommended initially spaced approximately one month apart. A yearly maintenance treatment may also be recommended.
