With myriad applications to improve our skin and hair, the fraxel laser treatment is no less than a boon. It is a new type of laser treatment that differs from other types by using many parallel beams of light instead of the typical single beam of the usual lasers, the light of microscopic diameter arrive in fractions to the skin. The effect is to stimulate the regeneration of natural skin components inside the skin, generating a skin with a better tone and radiance.
