At Virginia Oral, Facial & Implant Surgery, Dr. Gocke offers the Frax Pro system is an advanced diode laser system. Frax is a non-ablative fractional treatment used by professionals like Dr. Gocke to treat surfaces of the skin that have textural changes.
With more than 15 years of experience providing amazing results through cosmetic procedures, Dr. Gocke is at the top of his field and has been honored for his attention to patient safety. He works to stay educated and informed on the latest and most innovative technologies available.
What Are the Benefits of Frax?
The Frax Pro system works by creating very small and controlled areas of heat on the skin. As the skin is heated, the body is tricked into believing that the skin has been damaged; therefore, it responds by producing more collagen in order to repair the “damage.” Over time, thanks to increased collagen production, your treatment area will begin to appear smoother and firmer.
As we mentioned, Frax is a non-ablative laser. This means that patients who receive treatment with this device will heal faster than they would if an ablative laser was used. In fact, there is virtually no downtime associated with this treatment. The risk of side effects is very low, and many patients only need one or two treatments before they reach their desired cosmetic goals.*
Additionally, patients who choose treatment with Frax are left with improved skin pigmentation, fewer fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, a radiant appearance, and improvement in sun-damaged and scarred skin.
Is Frax Right for You?
The Frax system is right for almost any age and skin type. If you desire to have younger-looking skin, call Dr. Gocke to schedule your initial consultation at his office. During your appointment, he will be able to determine if this medspa treatment option will best suit your needs and individual cosmetic goals.
In general, if you have any of the following skin concerns, Frax may be right for you:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Post-acne hyperpigmentation
- Traumatic scars
- Other surface scars
- Skin texture problems
- Age spots
- Brown sunspots
- Uneven skin tone
- Stretch marks
- Actinic keratosis
Patients who have active skin conditions or sensitive skin may not be good candidates for Frax treatment. But remember, the only way to know whether or not you could be considered a good candidate is if you talk to Dr. Gocke, one-on-one.
What Is the Cost of Frax?
Treatment with Frax will vary in price depending on the area or areas to be treated, and the degree of repair required. Every patient has different needs, so every treatment plan will be different. Dr. Gocke will customize the treatment plan based on the patient’s desired results. That is why it is important to visit Dr. Gocke for an initial consultation to find out what your specific cost will be for your Frax treatment needs.
What Is the Recovery from Frax Like?
To make patients as comfortable as possible during treatment, this modality includes SoftCool™ technology. Even so, when you leave Dr. Gocke’s office after your Frax treatment, your face may be red or sore, as though you have a slight sunburn. This is normal, and the redness will subside soon. After a day or two, your treated skin will begin to flake. Again, this is a good sign! It means your new smooth, healthy skin is working its way to the surface. Most patients will begin to see their results within a week.
