Fraxel Laser

Dr Zakhary's Clinic in Calgary Canada is thrilled to offer you beautiful skin with the Fraxel Re:Store Laser. The Dr. Zakhary uses the Fraxel® Laser to greatly improve your face's skin texture, reduce pore size, improve acne scars, lighten unwanted age spots, brown spots and skin discolourations, and also rejuvenates the skin of the neck.

Facial Plastic Surgeons, General Plastic Surgeons and Cosmetic Dermatologists in Calgary are using Fraxel Laser treatments to smooth fine wrinkles and lines on the face, in addition to improving skin pigmentation disorders, by reducing age spots, sun spots and melasma (pregnancy mask). This cosmetic procedure is also excellent for improving your face skin texture, reducing pore size, and improving the appearance of facial acne and acne scars.

The advantage of using Fraxel Laser with Dr. Zakhary is that this laser technology is ideal for many skin types, including Asian skin and darker skin types, with fewer risks of other conventional laser technologies. Additionally, Dr. Zakhary is an Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery Facial Cosmetic Surgeon, Board Certified with the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and she is experienced in treating many skin type patients with the Fraxel Laser.

Fraxel® laser technology is a tried and true approach to treating aging and sun damaged skin. It can offer more dramatic results for your skin when compared to conventional non ablative laser treatments. The results of the Fraxel Re:Store laser can also be dramatic without the side effects of traditional ablative laser treatments which can include hyperpigmentation (darker skin), hypopigmentation (lighter skin) or facial scarring. The reason that Fraxel Laser carries less risks than ablative lasers, is that Fraxel uses pixel technology, where the laser treats only a fraction of the skin at one time by producing of micorscopic heated columns in your skin, which penetrate deep into the layers of the skin, and leaves microscopic columns of normal skin in between the treated areas. This allows for less down time and quicker recovery since the normal columns of skin will help to heal the treated pixels of skin. This is called "fractional" treatment.

Fraxel laser is done in a series of less intense treatments, and so the risks of each treatment is less, and so is the recovery time.

How is the Fraxel Laser Treatment Done?

Dr. Zakhary will first pre treat your skin with medical skin care creams in order to prepare your face for better results with the Fraxel laser. The Fraxel laser treatment is done with Topical anesthesia (cream) or local anesthesia injections as needed. During the procedure, a device will cool your face for maximum comfort. The laser procedure usually takes around two hours. Right after your procedure, your face may be puffy and red for a day or so, and then pink for up to 3 days. You will usually be socially presentable 3 to 4 days after your treatment. You may apply make-up to your face immediately after your Fraxel laser treatment, and men can continue to shave as usual.

Typically you will need between 4 to 6 Fraxel laser treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart, for best results. For Acne scar improvement you may need more treatments for optimal results. You will start to see your skin improvements around 1 to 3 months after your first laser treatment. Dr. Zakhary recommends that you have a maintenance treatment every year to maintain your nice skin improvements.

What our patients have to say

After trying a number of creams, acid peels and light treatments for my melasma, I went to Dr. Zakhary to seek her advice. She recommended the Obagi line (yes, it's expensive), but I say unbelievable results with just a month and a half of use. Then I followed up with a Fraxel treatment - improved the results even more.I also see Dr. Zakhary for cheek and lip fillers - she does a great job with keeping the results natural and realistic.
I am very pleased with the results of my Fraxel laser treatment! Dr. Zakhary recommended this treatment to improve my acne scarring and it helped tremendously!! The Fraxel had to be used in combination with the Obagi skin care line, which is quite pricey but it was well worth the cost. Dr. Zakhary and Kelsey were AMAZING, I would recommend Dr. Zakhary to anyone looking to improve the look of their skin! They were both very knowledgeable, friendy, caring and helpful. I couldn't be happier with the results!
I had a laser removal appointment at Dr. Zakhary's office and when I came in I was greeted by her receptionist in a very warm matter. She was punctual in getting me into my appointment and always has a smile on her face. Her technician is very professional and always does a great job with my laser and fraxal making sure I am always comfortable and never in pain. Dr. Zakhary provides a very warm and comforting environment where all her patients can know they are getting the best treatment:)
Dr. Zakhary and her staff have taken such good care of me. I am getting laser treatments for dark spots on my face and Dr. Z’s office sent me emails in between appointments letting me know what to expect and what to do to protect my skin and help the process along in the interim. I would recommend this place to all my friends and family. Very professional, very caring, very lovely office. Great location and Sabrina who does my treatments is fantastic!

I came in to get a tattoo removal about a few weeks ago. I had already gone in to one place to get it removed but they were only able to get it done partially. With Dr. Zakhary, she was able to completely remove the tattoo so that when I look in the mirror, I finally have a clear chest. I’ve realized that’s it not often that you could find someone that you can count on but Dr. Zakhary is now of them. Thank you again for the great work!

"Just wanted to let you know that I’m still so thrilled with my results! I went to a family reunion and saw many relatives I haven’t seen for 10+years and so many commented on how I haven’t aged a day! I feel confident and beautiful! I’m so glad I had it done. Thanks again :)"

Thank you again for the amazing job this past Wednesday morning. The great shape I am in 36 hours or so after the procedure must be a testament to your work. I am so grateful you were recommended to me.
