Fraxel Laser Treatment is a line of non-surgical lasers for facial rejuvenation developed by Solta Medical in 2001.
Fraxel lasers cause fractional photothermolysis for skin resurfacing to treat a range of skin conditions. Different fraxel systems use 10,600 nm CO2, 1550 nm Erbium, and 1927 nm thulium lasers.
