The FRAXEL Laser Offers Revolutionary Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin treatment offers a non-invasive, incredibly effective, and virtually painless way to rejuvenate the appearance of your skin and reduce visible signs of aging. While other practices use traditional, outdated laser technology, Dr. Stanley L. Librach incorporates the FRAXEL® laser to more precisely target the treatment area while reducing the length of your procedure and recovery time. During a complimentary cosmetic consultation at our office in Chesterfield, MO, our board-certified plastic surgeon can explain how the technology works and help determine whether it is right for you.
Are You a Good Candidate?
FRAXEL laser treatment is appropriate for most patients who want to experience rejuvenating and lasting results without undergoing cosmetic surgery. Laser skin resurfacing can dramatically reduce the appearance of several common cosmetic concerns, such as:
- Fine lines
- Brow lines
- Crow’s feet
- Age spots or sunspots
- Acne scarring or surface scars
Traditional vs. FRAXEL Laser Treatment
While traditional lasers are ablative, meaning they destroy outer layers of skin using controlled heat, the FRAXEL laser treats signs of aging using gentler methods. Considered a type of non-ablative laser, FRAXEL technology resurfaces only a fraction of your skin. Fractional resurfacing, also known as fractionated resurfacing, precisely targets only areas of concern and leave the surrounding tissue untouched. In short, this means the FRAXEL laser can deliver safer, more comfortable, and more effective treatment than traditional lasers, chemical peels, or anti-aging lotions and creams. Thanks to the reduced procedure length and recovery time, you can also enjoy the benefits of cosmetic treatment without taking time off out from your busy schedule.
How It Works
During your treatment, we will use the FRAXEL laser to gently apply heat to the area of concern and promote the growth of new, healthy-looking tissue. The procedure usually lasts just 15 to 45 minutes depending on the extent of your concerns. Most patients see the best results within one to five treatment sessions.

There is little to no downtime associated with the procedure, and most patients are able to return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. Although some patients experience redness, swelling, and some sensitivity following the procedure, the effects are often compared to a mild sunburn and usually fade after a few days. The final effects of your procedure should be more noticeable after a few days. Most patients are able to achieve their desired results, seeing a more vibrant, youthful complexion, within three weeks.
