TV personality and Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda Holden reveals her ‘top tips for looking gorgeous.’ Amanda says, “I made the mistake of confessing on TV that I had had Botox once. But now I look for the latest non-invasive treatments like Thermage or Fraxel. They’re skin-cleansing procedures that keep your collagen alive and awake with no knives or needles.”

“I had developed a very sun-damaged décolletage and, having had three treatments of Fraxel, I have been very pleased with the results. I now have a much smoother, younger-looking chest area and the Fraxel has really regenerated my skin. The results are truly noticeable”

"I would like to highly recommend Dr Rakus’s Fraxel treatment. I have had a course of 6 sessions over the past 2 years and have found the results to be absolutely amazing. My skin texture is very smooth and soft plus the small fine lines around my eyes and mouth have almost disappeared. I would highly recommend this treatment!"

The authentic, non-invasive Fraxel® laser treatment just got better! The new Fraxel re:store® Dual Wavelength System is a breakthrough skin resurfacing technology that can turn back the clock on your skin no matter what your age, or skin colour, with minimal discomfort. This non-invasive procedure is used to combat age spots, pigmentation, sun damage, lines and wrinkles acne scarring, or general skin conditions.

How Fraxel re:store works

The non-ablative Fraxel re:store Dual Wavelength System takes the industry leading Fraxel technology to the next level by adding a novel laser wavelength, the first-ever of its kind in the aesthetics market.

Fraxel Neck Treatment (before & after)The new wavelength will help to treat pigmentation and signs of ageing on the entire body with minimal discomfort. Offering superior results, the new Fraxel re:store technology effectively targets the skin surface for smoother, fresher looking skin with less downtime than comparable ablative treatments. Physicians are also now able to treat multiple body areas in one treatment session.

Fraxel Treatment for hands (before & after photos)The Fraxel re:store Dual Wavelength System is the latest addition to the range of Fraxel treatments to address both deep and superficial resurfacing indications with maximum efficacy and safety. Fraxel treatments work consistently for all skin types anywhere on the face and body.

Benefits and Features of the Fraxel re:store Dual Wavelength System

  • Fraxel Treatment - Knightsbridge, London by Dr Rita RakusDeep and superficial resurfacing in one system with dual fibre laser technology
  • Accelerated clearance of unwanted pigmentation producing the best possible results in resurfacing.
  • Improved patient comfort with cooling delivered directly to the treatment area
  • Treatment of larger and multiple body areas in a single session, meaning expanded results with fewer trips to the cosmetic clinic
  • Faster treatments

The Fraxel re:store laser delivers remarkable results. It is the only fractional laser system that safely penetrates the skin down to the dermis without breaking the skin’s protective outer barrier. The result is natural stimulation of new collagen without the fear of prolonged downtime and risks associated with traditional ablative treatments.

Preparing for Fraxel re:store Treatment

Fraxel Laser Treatment can be performed right in your doctor’s surgery using only topical anaesthesia in most cases. The treatment area will be thoroughly washed prior to the Fraxel procedure and a contact gel applied.

The new Fraxel laser machine does not require the application of the blue dye anymore.

What Happens After my Fraxel re:store Treatment?

After your Fraxel treatment you will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then virtually no discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for five to seven days. This is a normal sign that the skin is healing deeply, that dermal tissue is being repaired, and there is good blood circulation. Swelling is minimal and generally resolves in two to three days.

Fraxel Aftercare

New epidermal skin develops immediately, within 24 hours after the Fraxel treatment. This process of skin repair involves:

  • Bronzing: Your skin will have a bronze appearance that lasts anywhere from three to 7 days, depending on the Fraxel treatment level.
  • Dry Skin : Your skin will naturally exfoliate as the reorganised epidermal skin replaces dead tissue. The dry skin is similar to that of minor sunburn, but without the associated pain. Use of a moisturiser will mask the appearance of the dry skin.
  • Sunscreen: Be sure to use sunscreen at least twice daily to protect your skin from sun exposure during both the healing phase and for several months after your Fraxel treatment. Apply a moisturising sun block with an SPF of at least 30-plus. For added protection, use wide-brimmed hats when in direct sunlight.

Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues that have been affected by the Fraxel treatment, producing longer beneficial changes associated with a healthy, youthful appearance.

You may apply make-up or shave soon after treatment but you should avoid saunas, swimming and any exercise for 1 week and do NOT have any other form of facial treatment or therapy until authorised to do so by your practitioner, nor should you use products on your face that will irritate the skin or block the pores.

Typically patients find they can go back to work soon after the Fraxel treatment or the next day.

Due to the unique delivery of the Fraxel laser system there are very few risks associated with the treatment with minimal downtime. However, skin can be highly sensitive and care must be taken to minimize any adverse reactions. Complications include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Swelling/redness/blanching/burns/blisters/scabbing/hyper or hypo-pigmentation changes/bruising/mild to moderate discomfort/itching/cold sores/infection/keloid formation/punctuate bleeding/skin textural changes/milia/acne eruption/permanent scarring.

Most of these effects will normally disappear within a few days or weeks of treatment, but please contact your practitioner if you experience any of the above effects.

“I have now had 5 sessions of Fraxel with Dr. Rakus to improve my acne scars and the results have been excellent.

The treatments have been carried out professionally by competent staff in a very comfortable and relaxing environment. The treatment was slightly uncomfortable and there was some mild discomfort for about 18-24 hours after each session, but it has been worth it to achieve the results.

I felt so self conscious prior to the treatment, but I now have more positive and self confident. I have received a lot of compliments and positive feedback from friends and family and have no hesitation in recommending Fraxel laser,
Dr. Rakus
and her team. Many thanks!"
