Fraxel® Laser

Take Years off Your Face.


The outermost layers of your skin (epidermis) are incessantly subjected to a barrage of damaging environmental elements (i.e. UV rays, wind, air pollutants). Over time, the cumulative effects of this sustained damage begin to take a visible toll on the appearance of the skin, triggering the development of a numerous skin irregularities and textural problems. Dismayed by these unwelcome developments, many patients mistakenly assume that facial surgery is the only corrective option powerful enough to reverse the signs of facial aging; however, thanks to developments in laser-based treatment modalities, there are non-invasive alternatives that will allow you to turn back the hands of time!

At Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody), with office locations in Richmond, VA and Vienna, VA, Board certified (ABPS) plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin are pleased to provide their patients with an effective countermeasure to the visible signs of aging—Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing treatments. The specialized Fraxel® laser directs pulsating beams of light at the skin to remove the damaged skin cells one layer at a time, and then harness the power of thermal energy to heat the underlying layers of the skin (dermis), thereby stimulating new collagen production. Collagen is a crucial protein that is necessary for the growth of new, healthy skin cells, and contributes to the appearance of a flawlessly smooth skin surface.*

Over the last decade, nearly one million Fraxel® treatments have been performed on both male and female patients of all skin types and ethnicities. Fraxel® laser resurfacing is ideally suited for patients seeking to correct any of the following skin problems:

  • Acne/surgical/injury-related scars
  • Hyperpigmentation (skin darkening)
  • Fine-to-moderate lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged or aging skin
  • Liver spots, age spots, and other skin abnormalities
  • Acne-prone skin/enlarged oil glands
  • Actinic keratosis

Fraxel® laser resurfacing is a very precise treatment, targeting only 15% of the skin’s surface while penetrating deep into the dermis (innermost layers of the skin). This fractional approach protects and preserves the surrounding facial tissues, preventing undesirable skin lightening (hypopigmentation), and facilitating rapid healing. Fraxel® laser treatments typically last between 15-45 minutes, are associated with minimal discomfort (akin to a mild sunburn), and do not require any post-treatment down time.

In order to maximize the effectiveness of your Fraxel® laser resurfacing, the recommended treatment protocol is 3-5 sessions spaced at one-week intervals; however, we are happy to work with you to create a treatment plan that fits conveniently into your busy schedule. Because Fraxel works with your body’s natural skin-regeneration cycle, your skin-enhancing results will take 1-3 weeks to become fully apparent.*
