The Fraxel® laser is a revolutionary, FDA-approved laser treatment that subtracts years from your appearance. Fraxel is the pioneer of fractional photothermolysis, a technology in which thousands of microscopic laser columns, each just 1/10 of the diameter of a hair follicle, treat a fraction of the skin at a time without affecting the surrounding tissue. These laser columns stimulate the production of younger, smoother, healthier skin to replace damaged tissue. Dr. Edward J. Gross and his certified physician assistant Eileen serve Fraxel laser skin treatment patients from Orlando and other Florida cities.

Eileen is a certified physician assistant who has been practicing since 2011. She specializes in performing injectable and laser skin treatments, and creating personalized skin care regimens.
We first assess your skin with VISIA™ complexion analysis, a digital imaging system that can see beneath the skin's surface. This provides us with detailed information on the skin's health and establishes a baseline for treatment. We then customize a Fraxel laser treatment plan specifically for each individual.
Our practice uses the Fraxel re:store 1500, which has broad uses for all skin types. We can control variables such as the laser's energy level, treatment level, and the number of passes for each individual patient.
We pass the laser handpiece across the skin in precise patterns specific to your skincare needs. You will feel a mild pinprick sensation, which you should tolerate well. We use a stream of cold air from the Zimmer cooler to reduce discomfort. We then apply a cool facemask to reduce swelling.
Because Fraxel is a fractional procedure, it treats about 20% of the skin's surface each time it is used, promoting faster healing. We usually recommend 3 to 4 treatments per patient about a month apart for best results.

At Primera Plastic Surgery near Orlando, we customize each Fraxel laser treatment to the patient's specific needs and desired results. Therefore, it's impossible to offer an exact quote via the internet. In general, prices for some of the most commonly treated areas are as follows:
During your consultation, you will receive a more precise estimate that reflects the specifications of your treatment. We offer patient financing options to help patients work laser resurfacing and any complementary treatments into their budgets.
For most of our Fraxel patients, we apply a highly effective topical numbing cream called BLT to the targeted areas prior to the laser treatment. In some cases, we prescribe a mild sedative and analgesic for a more comfortable experience. Fraxel treatments generally last 30 minutes.
We recommend a post-laser skincare regimen consisting of Primera Pharmaceuticals aloe cort, a gentle cleanser, a facial moisturizer, and a sunblock. Most patients can return to school or work the following day, and some need just a day off to recover. Patients should avoid sun exposure for a month. To check healing, we schedule a follow-up visit after a week.
