HOW DOES IT WORK?
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
"Dr. Butterfield is an amazing human being and plastic surgeon! I was on vacation in Aspen and had an awful accident. I was referred to Valley View Hospital by the Aspen hospital because they didn’t have any plastic surgeon on call there. When I arrived at the hospital, the nursing staff and ER Dr were so kind and helpful. They called the plastic surgeon that was on call but she had the day off. So, she came in on her day off to help me out! She took me to her office and put my injuries back together. I’m truly grateful and thankful to Dr. Butterfield. She was very kind and made my very scary situation, comforting and calming! I would highly recommend Dr Butterfield for any reconstruction surgery. She did amazing things with my eye injury."- S.H. / Google / Nov 13, 2018
"Bea is absolutely THE BEST at facial peels I've seen her twice and couldn't be happier with the results! My skin looks amazing. She has such a gentle touch and is so informative about skin care. The Clear and Brilliant is also a total game changer! I've gotten so many compliments on how great my skin looks since seeing Bea, I've already scheduled another visit!"- M.H. / Google / Oct 06, 2018
"Everything about the staff and the experience with my surgery was the best it could be. ALL of the women are SO friendly and accommodating. Dr Butterfield is amazing at what she does and made my experience as painless and enjoyable as could be. I’m so grateful that I was referred to them considering my ‘un-fun’ circumstances of getting a chunk of my hand removed. I want to hug them all."- K.W. / Google / Apr 24, 2018
"Outstanding - I've been dealing with acne scars for 20 years and have tried almost every product and procedure out there. When i first came to Dr. Butterfield, it was for Botox as I had given up on any effective treatment for scarring. She recommended Fraxel. I went into it without any expectations of results. I couldn't believe when the healing started after several weeks and there was noticeable improvement in my skin. For someone with acne scars, this is life changing. I've always been very self-conscious and saddened anytime i saw my face in a picture. Now i don't mind having my picture taken. I feel beautiful and confident and that's because of Dr. Butterfield and Bea's skill and knowledge. Bea Sarver performs my fraxel treatment and her attention to detail and expertise with the equipment is amazing. She has studied the laser's capability and how to adjust it to achieve the results based on skin type and severity of scarring. Likely why the Fraxel treatment i had from a previous provider didn't produce the results that Bea did. She takes pride in improving my skin. I hope that both Bea and Dr. Butterfield understand how much they've changed my life. Everyone in the office is caring and attentive. I cannot recommend this practice enough. I've been to countless doctors over the years for treatment of scars but it was Dr. Butterfield and Bea that actually produced results. I cannot thank them and their entire team enough."- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 17, 2018

The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
