Our skincare specialists will work directly with you to determine whether Fraxel Laser Resurfacing or PICO Genesis is the right solution to address your specific concerns. We encourage you to come to your consultation appointment with questions regarding both options. Our office is conveniently located just outside of Philadelphia, making it easy to visit from anywhere in Montgomery County.
The Fraxel laser resurfacing technology works through a handheld device connected to a larger machine, which is manipulated in degree and placement by our skincare experts. Our Fraxel laser resurfacing procedure essentially sends “microbeams” or wavelengths into the lower layers of the skin, producing tiny abrasions in the skin and promoting rapid recovery and replacement with new, healthy skin tissue. The procedure stimulates the growth of collagen to tighten and lift skin in the face, neck, and décolletage region.

Unlike the Fraxel laser, the PICO Genesis is a non-ablative laser. It works above the surface of the skin to restore a warm and natural glow and produce a younger, refreshed look. The advanced technology incorporates short and rapid energy pulsation to remodel collagen formation, revitalizing skin that has become dull or that has lost its natural radiance. This treatment is considered to be among the least-invasive cosmetic laser options, with little to no downtime or recovery.
