We are fortunate to live in a time when technology consistently advances to bring us innovative products and treatments. Fraxel laser treatments are especially effective for skin rejuvenation on the face and other areas. Our menu of services includes two Fraxel therapies – Fraxel Dual and Fraxel re:pair – each designed for specific results.
The secret of stunning outcomes with Fraxel lies in the technology and the skill of the physician. Dr. Bucay uses the device to focus microscopic laser columns, called treatment zones, into the deeper layers of skin (the dermis). Safe and effective, the laser precisely treats problem areas while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed, and stimulates your body to produce more collagen. Through the elimination of targeted cells, skin is rejuvenated as fresh new cells and a more youthful appearance emerge.
Fraxel treatment delivers optimal results that are long-lasting.
What is Fraxel Dual®?
Fraxel is one of the most advanced cosmetic dermatology treatments currently available. The technology includes a hand-held device that smartly scans your skin to ensure safety and consistent results. The device delivers fractional lasers that penetrate the top layers of skin and stimulates collagen under the skins surface. Meanwhile, it resurfaces the top layer of your skin. This procedure works with your skin’s natural rejuvenation process to smooth wrinkles and minimize the appearance of scars.
Many people long to rewind the clock a few years and get back the face they used to have. However, many patients in San Antonio don’t know where to turn.

How Fraxel works
The secret of stunning outcomes with Fraxel lies in the technology and the skill of the physician. Dr. Vivian Bucay uses the device to focus microscopic laser columns, called treatment zones, into the deeper layers of skin (the dermis). Fraxel is the original fractional laser treatment that works below the skin’s surface from the top down, addressing imperfections like fine lines, visible photo aging, wrinkles, scarring and age spots.
What is Faxel re:pair and what can it correct?
Re:pair® goes to work on skin that has a higher degree of damage. In fact, Fraxel re:pair® was designed specifically for cases where skin developed permanent redness due to sun damage, severe sun or age spots, irregular texture, or lines and wrinkles.
Fraxel re:pair® is known for producing amazing results and has been compared to facelift for softening deep wrinkles. It can also help patients avoid or delay more invasive procedures. This deeper form of laser resurfacing usually requires a week to ten days for full healing. During this time, you should avoid sun exposure and smoke, and limit vigorous activity to promote healing.
Fraxel Dual® in the news
Ideal candidates for Fraxel Dual®
If the face in the mirror looks older than you feel, it could be for many reasons. Stress, genetics, sun exposure, the environment, and aging can contribute to the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Pre-cancerous skin conditions
How long is a Fraxel Dual® treatment?
Fraxel treatments usually only take 15-45 minutes and many patients achieve the best results with one to five treatment sessions. While it can take a week to three weeks to see the results, this is because the treatment works with your own skin cells.
