Fractionated Skin Resurfacing
As we age, our skin shows the symptoms. We develop more uneven pigmentation, age-spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. But help is at hand, the Nordlys FRAX 1550 may slow down and even reverse the visible signs of aging, by removing the age spots and leaving the skin looking fresher and less wrinkled. Even better, there is no significant downtime – you can have a treatment and resume your busy business and social life almost immediately.
How Does The Nordlys Treatment Work?
The FRAX 1550 laser treatment works by creating very small and controlled islands of heat damage, surrounded by normal healthy skin. When the body repairs this controlled damage, collagen throughout the treated area is replaced, reducing the fine lines, uneven pigment and renewing the skin’s surface. Research has shown that a combination treatment using the Nordlys Selective Waveband Technology (SWT) followed by the FRAX 1550 produces an even better result. And because the surface of the skin is left intact, you recover very quickly.
Can I Be Treated?
The FRAX 1550 treatment is not ideal for removing deep “active” wrinkles (those caused by movement), but it will help reduce fine lines, improve pigment concerns, stimulate collagen and many patients report improved pore size. The Nordlys has preprogrammed settings for different skin types to deliver the correct energy output for your complexion. Treatments aren’t limited to the face, neck, décolletage, or arms; talk to your provider about your areas of concern to learn more about what the FRAX 1550 can do for you.
How Long Does A Nordlys Treatment Take?
The FRAX 1550 treatment normally involves the use of local numbing cream, which is applied 30 minutes before treatment. Typical treatments take 15-45 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Do I Need To Take Any Precautions Before Or After The Treatment?
It is important to avoid sun exposure and self tanning products before and during the treatment period. It is possible to treat tanned skin, but sun exposure prior to the treatment can make it less effective and less comfortable. For better results, use a normal moisturizing cream before and after the treatment.
Talk to you provider if you are prone to acne breakouts or cold sores. After treatment, you should avoid sun exposure for 30 days, or use sun protection (minimum 30+ SPF) if sun exposure cannot be avoided.
How Many Nordlys Treatments Do I Need?
Typically you will be offered a course of 3-4 FRAX treatments, but if you have darker skin your provider may decide to offer a longer course of gentler treatments.

Does The Treatment Hurt?
The treatment may be a little uncomfortable, which is why we recommend the use of numbing cream. After the numbing wears off, you may have a few hours where your skin feels warm to hot.
How Can I Be Sure Nordlys Treatments Are Safe And Effective?
Clinical trials documenting the FRAX 1550’s safety and effectiveness were carried out by leading doctors prior to the launch of the treatments.
