Fraxel® is a laser-aided technology that has been proven to reverse the visible consequences of aging on your skin. You can regain your natural, young look with Fraxel® – not a dramatic change, just a younger you.

During a procedure, Dr. Kotis will first cleanse the skin. He will apply a numbing cream on treated areas to reduce discomfort. Fraxel® light energy works to remove layers of skin and encourages collagen production, which may reduce wrinkle appearance.
How long does a treatment take? Fraxel® may take around 20 to 30 minutes for facial treatment.
Ablative treatment with Fraxel® uses a high temperature to remove layers of damaged skin. As opposed to a non-ablative skin treatment, the results of an ablative laser tend to be more effective. However, recovery time can also be more involved. During a consultation at his Chicago facility, Dr. Kotis can determine if this ablative treatment is right for you.
Non-ablative Fraxel® treatment can treat milder marks on the skin. As opposed to ablative treatment, non-ablative treatment may require more treatments to achieve desired results. The recovery period, after these treatments, tends to be shorter. Patients may heal more quickly after a non-ablative treatment.
Estimating the total cost of Fraxel® treatments requires knowing the size of the target area and the number of treatments needed to provide optimal results. You will have a better understanding of the total cost of treatment after your first consultation with Dr. Kotis.
