Age, sun exposure, and genetics can leave you with uneven skin texture, rough patches, and facial scars. Fraxel 1550 Re:store skin resurfacing is a non-invasive laser treatment that can build up to 10 years of collagen with little to no downtime, no side effects, and no anesthesia. This cutting-edge technology is an alternative to CO2 laser resurfacing, without the inconvenience of 1 week or more of downtime, painful recovery and risk of infection. Now you can get results like the CO2 laser with a fraction of the downtime.
How does Fraxel skin resurfacing work?
The system emits microscopic columns of laser light energy, which bypass the outer layers of the skin, leaving the surface untouched. The columns of light penetrate deep into the dermis, where they create microscopic holes to initiate a healing response. As the light energy is affecting only a fraction of the skin’s tissue, the surrounding skin is left undamaged for faster healing. The controlled damage produced by Fraxel laser treatment triggers natural collagen production for firmer, healthier, smoother skin. New skin replaces the old and the result is a more even skin tone, reduction in acne scars and surgical scars, and reduction in other tonal and textural imperfections, even wrinkles!
As the fractional zones heal, they are re-populated with collagen and elastin, and ultimately, new, flawless skin. Your treatment goals, desired outcome, budget, time constraints, and the depth of the condition, will enable our patient care coordinator to design a custom plan, just for you.

Is Fraxel skin resurfacing right for me?
Fraxel Re:Store® or Fraxel 1550, are used for the treatment generally referred to as “fractional skin resurfacing.” Fraxel patented the 1550 wavelength, which is an extremely effective non-invasive laser therapy that can remedy the visible effects of all types of aging. Most industry providers think it's the most effective wavelength for anti-aging, or general resurfacing, for one simple reason, it really works! Fraxel received FDA clearance in 2000 and because of its track record and long history of efficacy, it has become the gold standard in skin resurfacing.
In addition to total skin rejuvenation, The Fraxel Re:Store has FDA clearance for the treatment of melasma, and can be used to safely and effectively rejuvenate tanned or darker skin types, which for many laser devices, is a marked contraindication for skin treatments. Fraxel is the perfect solution for people who want discreet, long-lasting results and youthful, radiant skin.
At Skintegrity MedSpa, located in the heart of downtown Kirkland, WA, just minutes from Seattle and Bellevue, we are expert Fraxel providers. If Fraxel isn’t a good solution for your specific situation, don’t be discouraged, we have several other fractional skin treatment devices like Fractional 1540, Fractora, and microneedling with PRP just to name a few.
What Can Fraxel Laser Treat?
Fraxel® skin resurfacing treatments are excellent for people who want to look good, want discreet, long-lasting results, and don't want the downtime from surgical intervention or ablative CO2 laser treatments.
Fraxel® fits into any lifestyle, any beauty regimen, and the Skintegrity team can make it fit into any budget.
Fraxel Restore is an excellent option for the treatment of:
- Fine Lines, wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Brow lines
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Stretch marks
- Pigmentation: age and sun spots
- Loose, saggy skin
- Actinic keratosis (AK), a common pre-cancerous skin condition
What is the treatment like?
On the day of treatment, we apply a very effective topical numbing cream while you relax for 60 minutes in a private treatment room before your Bellevue laser skin resurfacing service. You can take the time to get a vitamin infusion, a warm foot detox bath, or just rest and relax. The Fraxel treatment produces a heating sensation, takes approximately 35 minutes to administer, and is remarkably well-tolerated.
How will I look after the treatment?
After treatment, your skin will feel similar to a sunburn after a day at the beach. Moisturizer and UV protection are essential, as is a professional, medical-grade, home skincare regimen. Medical grade skincare products like Dermaquest, Environ, and PCA have been shown to increase results by as much as 40 percent! Oxygenetix, Breathable Post-Procedure Foundation, also helps increase your results while camouflaging the recovery.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Fraxel® can be used on all parts of the body. Some of the most popular areas include face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
