Most of us wish we could slow down the effects aging has on our looks – and maybe even get a few years back in the process. Fraxel® is proven laser technology that can help reverse the visible effects of aging, naturally helping you look as young as you feel. With Fraxel, change isn’t drastic or scary – it’s you, just younger.
Fraxel is effective on:
- Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
- Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
- Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
- Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
- Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition

“Years of hormone therapy left me with noticeable discoloration and blotchiness at the base of my neck, which I think drew attention to my age. After my first treatment with Fraxel®® laser, the blotchiness and discoloration on my neck improved immediately and continued to improve dramatically with each subsequent treatment. I was really impressed with this new technology and would do it again in a heartbeat. Personally, being able to get this type of immediate and dramatic results without any downtime is a slam dunk.
“What appealed to me most about Fraxel Laser Treatment is that the procedure involved no knives and no downtime. Friends of mine had laser resurfacing and weren’t impressed with the results, especially for such an invasive procedure. My husband also was uncomfortable with me getting a facelift, and Fraxel laser was a good non-invasive alternative. I’ve had four treatments on my face and neck, and the results are great. My skin is tighter, my jaw line is a little firmer, the fine lines around my eyes are gone, the overall tone looks better – my skin genuinely looks younger. This technology is fabulous, and the best part is it doesn’t intrude on your lifestyle.”
Jan G., age 50+, a director of operations in San Jose, CA
“Since I’ve been treated with the Fraxel laser, my skin and face feel totally refreshed and revived. People know I’ve had something done, but they can’t pinpoint what it is. Even my husband noticed the improvement without any probing.”
Karin H., age 50+, a healthcare professional in Darien, CT
“After getting off the birth control pill and having a hysterectomy, I developed melasma on my face that was really noticeable. I tried treatment with the IPL laser, but the improvement was minimal. With the Fraxel laser, I noticed a remarkable improvement in these brown spots after only one treatment – even in areas that were really dark brown. I’ve had three treatments with Fraxel laser so far, but my melasma was clear after only two treatments and the overall texture of my skin seems better as well.
“I raise llamas, so I spend a great deal of time working outdoors. As a result, I have sun damage on my chest that makes me look older. I’ve had such a great response with Fraxel on my face and neck that I want to treat my chest next to get rid of these sun spots. I’ve advised several people to consider the Fraxel laser because of how well it’s worked for me – even my mom who wants to treat the age spots on her hands.”
Susan D., age 45, Farmersville, TX
“Fraxel Laser Treatment leaves your skin very smooth and improves the overall tone and texture. I’ve also noticed that my pores are tighter and I break out a little less than normal.”
Carolyn G., age 30+, a partner in a law firm in New York, NY
“I’ve had sun spots all my life and tried everything to get rid of them, but nothing worked. When my dermatologist recommended the Fraxel laser, I was willing to give it a try because it was a non-invasive procedure that didn’t require any downtime. After the first treatment, I saw an immediate improvement. I’m thrilled with my results and have recommended Fraxel Laser Treatment to other people who, like me, tried other treatments without much success.”
Kara K., age 30+, a human resources executive assistant in Baltimore, MD
“About eight weeks after my first Fraxel treatment, the fine lines around my eyes were erased and my skin just looked better. Everyone noticed the improvement and asked if I changed my makeup. I would encourage anyone considering the Fraxel laser to do it. If you have the procedure done on a Friday, you’ll look good enough to go back to work on Monday.”
Alix F, 52, an IT professional in Georgetown, D.C.

Introducing the new Fraxel re:store® Dual Wavelength System
Gerrish and Associates is the first to use the new Fraxel re:store Dual system, providing superior results for large body areas during a single treatment. Prior to the non-ablative Fraxel re:store Dual system, laser skin resurfacing procedures were largely limited to the face. The Fraxel re:store Dual takes the industry leading fractional laser technology to the next level by adding a novel 1927 nm wavelength, the first ever application of a Thulium laser in the aesthetics market, optimized for treatment of pigmentation and other superficial skin conditions.
“The expanded versatility of the Fraxel re:store Dual system, with the addition of the new 1927 nm wavelength, increases the areas of the body that I can treat and provides a superior treatment for pigmentation and actinic keratoses associated with photodamage,” says Scott Gerrish, MD.
“The Fraxel re:store Dual allows me to offer patients the safety, comfort and minimal downtime of a non-ablative treatment, and achieve results superior to superficial fractional CO2 treatments.”
