Reboot your Skin this Winter Fraxel Laser: Your Solution for Pigmentation and Acne Scarring


As the summer sun mellows into autumn hues, it’s time to shift our focus to treatments that promise more dramatic results. Embracing the cooler months allows us to prioritise rejuvenating our skin without the worry of prolonged sun exposure, paving the way for remarkable transformations and unveiling a revitalised complexion. At this time of year is when we see one of our most popular treatments take the spotlight, Fraxel Laser. Celebrated for its remarkable efficacy in addressing pigmentation issues and acne scarring, this cutting-edge procedure is our most effective treatment for pigmentation, skin tone and textural issues. 

Understanding Fraxel Laser

Fraxel Laser represents a non-invasive marvel in skincare, utilising fractional laser technology to precisely target specific skin areas at deeper level. Unlike conventional ablative lasers that strip away entire skin layers, Fraxel operates by creating microscopic wounds, triggering the body's innate healing process that penetrates the epidermis. This stimulates the generation of fresh collagen and elastin, resulting in a rejuvenated, smoother skin texture.

At The Clinic we use a Fraxel Dual laser, which operates on two different wavelengths. The first wavelength is to treat superficial concerns such as pigmentation; the second wavelength tightens and rejuvenates the skin to repair more permanent damage or signs of ageing. With the Fraxel Dual laser, treatment times are reduced by around 25% over other machines and your costs are ultimately lower, because the machine allows for single-nurse operation.

Benefits for Pigmentation and Acne Scarring:


  • Precision Targeting: Fraxel Laser's precise targeting mechanism allows it to focus on specific areas of pigmentation, such as sun damage and age spots. This precision ensures effective treatment while minimising damage to surrounding healthy skin.

  • Even Skin Tone: By breaking down excess melanin in the skin, Fraxel Laser helps to lighten pigmented spots and promote a more even skin tone. Over a series of treatments, patients can achieve noticeable improvements in the appearance of pigmentation, revealing a brighter and more radiant complexion.

Acne Scarring

  • Collagen Stimulation: Fraxel Laser stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars. By promoting tissue regeneration and remodelling, Fraxel Laser helps to smooth out uneven skin surfaces and minimise the visibility of scars.


While Fraxel Laser is a highly versatile and effective treatment, it may not be suitable for everyone. Certain factors may influence candidacy for the procedure, including:

Skin Type: Fraxel Laser is safe for most skin types, including fair to medium-toned skin. However, individuals with darker skin tones may be at a higher risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation and require extra caution during treatment.

Medical History: Patients with a history of certain medical conditions may not be suitable candidates for Fraxel Laser. Additionally, individuals taking medications or undergoing treatments that affect skin sensitivity or healing may need to postpone or avoid treatment.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Due to the potential risks, Fraxel Laser treatment is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding individuals. It's essential to wait until after pregnancy and nursing before considering the procedure.

Hormonal Pigmentation (Melasma): Fraxel laser treatment is not generally recommended as a first-line treatment for hormonal pigmentation, also known as melasma, because it can potentially worsen the condition. Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation that is often triggered by hormonal changes, such as pregnancy or the use of hormonal contraceptives. Fraxel laser works by creating controlled micro-injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and tone. However, in the case of melasma, the heat generated by the laser can actually exacerbate pigmentation and lead to further discoloration.
