The Fraxel Thulium™ Treatment can reduce years of sun damage and hyperpigmentation off of the skin in only 1-2 treatments*. With minimal downtime that resembles a sunburn or chemical peel, dark spots are specifically targeted without creating an open wound, facilitating a quick recovery in a few days*. Performed with only topical anesthesia, the procedure itself generally takes 15 minutes. Makeup can be applied in a few days and within a week’s time the skin will feel baby fresh. Individuals with only brown spots do best with this treatment alone, but those with scars and wrinkles benefit from the application of the traditional Fraxel Restore® treatment which can be performed at the same time with just the flick of a switch. Have no time for downtime? The Photofacial treatment for brown pigmentation still offers a great result that can be performed in several (4-6) spaced out treatment sessions to minimize recovery*. Upon Consultation with Dr. Frank, you can find out which treatment protocol is best for you.   Don’t forget to ask about Thulium treatments for the chest, arms, and legs.
