FRAX laser

The Frax laser is a part of the Nordlys Ellipse laser system that comes from Denmark.


The device is so named because only a fraction of the skin is treated, leaving the bulk of the skin intact so healing can take place rapidly.

The Frax laser hand piece

The rotating wheel at the laser end of the handpiece (right side) allows for ease of application. The wheel also acts as a switch to activate the laser.

The treatment


The skin is first anaesthetised with EMLA cream.  Typically 3 or 4 passes of Frax laser are required per session and a minimum of 3 sessions is required for each indication. The procedure takes about 15 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated,

After treatment, some redness is noted but recovery is usually rapid. Peeling may occur, and healing is often complete in about 5 days

Treatment of stretch marks with Frax laser

Four passes are made over the stretch marks with the Frax laser. This results in contraction of the stretch marks and improvement in their appearance.
