Fraxel NYC & Fractional Resurfacing

The physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York are world leaders in fractional resurfacing of aging skin, sun damage, acne scars, surgical scars, and melasma. Our board certified dermatologists have been involved in the development of most of the fractional laser devices that are available for skin treatment. We offer 14 fractional lasers including 5 Fraxel Re:store Dual® lasers, 2 Fraxel Re:pair® lasers, 600 micron Fraxel Re:pair®, Total FX, Scaar FX, 2 LaseMD, 2 Clear + Brilliants® and 2 Perméas®.

We also offer the new FASA technique can be helpful for lines and scars with less downtime than traditional resurfacing procedures. This approach uses a conservative resurfacing approach with the topical application of fillers.

All of these procedures are performed by physicians only.
In this video, Dr. Geronemus discusses how fractional laser skin resurfacing reduces scarring and pore size, improves skin tone and texture, and reduces wrinkles. The video shows several patient before and afters. Fraxel and other types of fractional treatments can treat fine lines and achieve skin tightening. Dr. Geronemus explains how fractional lasers work to treat the skin. The video includes an example treatment with the Fraxel Dual laser on a patient. The dermatologists at our practice know how to select the fractional laser that will get the most optimal result for each patient.
