Doctors have discovered Fraxel lasers can prevent skin cancer by removing dangerous sunspots.

What is Laser Resurfacing?

Laser Resurfacing is directing short, concentrated pulsating beams of laser light energy into the two outermost layers of skin epidermis (upper layer) and dermis. (lower layer)

Laser skin resurfacing involves stimulating the dermis (bottom layer) of skin to produce collagen and elastin as well as causing turn over of the skin so that the outer dead layer of skin (epidermis) is shed. This results in the removal of pigment that is trapped between the epidermis and dermis- (also known as melanin). The end result is skin that has a fresher look with more vital appearance.

At Ageless Clinics, we use the Fraxel re:store dual treatment  which is the accepted gold standard for non-ablating fractional resurfacing.  We chose Fraxel as it is effective, safe and predictable; the laser delivers dramatic results for all skin types, on and off the face – with minimal disruption to your daily routine.


Why do I need Laser Resurfacing?

If you want to turn back the clock on your skin no matter what your age, or color of skin, with minimal discomfort, Fraxel Laser Resurfacing is for you. Fraxel re:store dual treatment is the latest scientific breakthrough in skin rejuvenation.

We were the first clinic in Australia to use Fraxel re:store dual treatment in late 2009 and since then, we have subjectively experienced the Fraxel re:store to be highly effective, safe and predictable treatment for the following conditions:

Acne scarring, actinic keratosis, skin resurfacing, melasma (mask of pregnancy) or hormonal skin discoloration (pigmentation), wrinkles around the eyes and sun damage and age spots, surgical scars, red stretch marks, and widened skin pores.

How does Laser Resurfacing work?

Fraxel treatment repairs damaged skin by treating only a small fraction of skin at a time, leaving the area surrounded by unaffected, healthy tissue. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy, tighter tissue to replace skin imperfections.

The new Fraxel re:store dual treatment technology we use for laser resurfacing at Ageless Clinics effectively targets the skin surface for smoother, fresher looking skin with less downtime than comparable ablative treatments such carbon dioxide laser.

Watch our how Fraxel works video (below) where we interview James Powell, Fraxel National Manager ANZ. He explains Fraxel laser resurfacing, what makes Fraxel different, and valuable information about the treatments.

Fraxel re:store is the only fractional laser system that safely penetrates the skin down to the dermis without breaking the skin’s protective outer barrier. The result is natural stimulation of new collagen without the fear of prolonged downtime and risks associated with traditional ablative treatments.

What do I need to know about recovery?

Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from Fraxel re:store treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two and any redness typically fades within seven days. Most people return to routine activities within a day or two and can rely on simple make up to cover treatments.
