I have been using Fraxel in my practice for four years. The Fraxel effect on the skin is similar to CO2 Ultrapulse ablation but without the wound care and downtime. The Fraxel energy is absorbed by water, as is the CO2, but ablates microscopic spots of epidermis and dermis so that the adjacent, healthy tissue seals the wounds in a matter of hours.
