With the advancements made in the field of medicine and surgery in the past 8 to 10 years, a lot of treatments have been invented that can help all those people who are fighting a battle with aging a slight edge. While surgical treatments always prove to be the last resort for people wanting to remove the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, there are certain advanced non surgical options available as well which can prove to be quite effective in your battle against this dreadful process called aging. One such treatment that has gained significant amount of popularity in the last few years is Fraxel Laser. A lot of people in Sydney and across the globe are lining up for appointments at skin care clinics to get this treatment and get rid of their problem related to wrinkles and fine lines in quick time.

Fraxel lasers, also termed as fractional lasers can actually be classified into two types – Fraxel or Non Ablative Lasers and CO2 Lasers. Fraxel lasers prove much more effective on patients who are in their 30s or 40s, as they have mild to moderate wrinkles, scars, etc. CO2 lasers, on the other hand, are a better option for the ones who have deeper wrinkles, acne spots and scarring. That is the reason why the former is preferred by the younger lot while the later is opted by the ones in the 50s and 60s. The fact that CO2 lasers treat more deeply also means that it requires higher amount of downtime when compared to Fraxel lasers.
