Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most significant anti-ageing breakthroughs of the 21st Century.

The FRAXIS, our Fractional CO2 Laser is a new and superior system inducing resurfacing of the epidermis and regeneration of the dermis, through delivering optimum thermal effects. The FRAXIS improves Skin Tone, Texture, Reduces wrinkles scars and pore size, and provides a skin tightening and lifting effect all in t treatment. It can deliver the most dramatic results and correct mild to severe skin problems, ranging from dark spots, scar, to deep wrinkles.

TWO TYPES OF LASER SKIN SURFACING – Ablative and Non-ablative. Both treatments are excellent anti-aging procedures, and can be used to correct mild to severe skin problems. Ablative lasers work best for scars, deep line and wrinkles, and give a more dramatic effect. Non ablative laser, are excellent for fine wrinkle lines, dark spots, skin discolourations, and sun spots, and produce a milder gentler effect.


With most Ablative Lasers you can expect to be pink and puffy for approximately 4-5 days. With a bit of make up you can resume normals activities after 24 hours. However, The FRAXIS, our Fractional CO2 Laser, is specifically designed to give less discomfort and downtime compared with other Fraxel treatments. The uniform and stable beam quality made possible by the 30 watt RF tube provides accuracy and safety in treatment. Optimal beam size minimises downtime and the risk for PIH while at the same time maximises ablative thermal effect.

Although Non ablative lasers don’t require the down time of an Ablative laser, they produce a milder and gentler effect, and require multiple session to gain the same effect.
