We ensure patients are comfortable by applying a topical anaesthetic cream before the treatment and the machine now comes with a Zimmer device, which blows chilled air on the skin as the laser works, distracting nerve endings. I have personally used most of the other leading lasers, radio frequency and pulsed light machines on the market over the past 15 years and Fraxel is by far the most comfortable. It manages to achieve great results without being ablative, so you don’t get the discomfort, persistent burning sensation, hot spots or ‘crispy’ skin you describe. Fraxel downtime is quite brief in comparison to other lasers, and initially looks like sunburn and develops into a grainy ‘ground coffee’ appearance as the skin exfoliates - you can view pictures of this process on the video we posted here
. The Fraxel The new Fraxel is the virtually pain-free for most patients. Our clinic was the first plastic surgeon lead practice in Brisbane to offer Fraxel laser, and we chose it specifically because it is a very high quality, medical grade laser that delivers measurable results without unnecessary discomfort. Most of our team members have had the treatment, so if you want to talk to someone first hand who has undergone Fraxel don’t hesitate to call us on 07 3202 4744 and ask!
