Fraxel Laser Treatments
The Fraxel Re:pair® addresses severe sun damage, wrinkles, and scars and is as effective as the older technologies. 1or 2 treatments are usually required spaced about 4 weeks apart. The healing process takes 5-7 days. The risks are considerably less.
Fraxel® Re:store® Dual utilizes a non-ablative fractionated laser, which is substantially less aggressive. It leaves no open wounds; both treatment and recovery are easier. Fraxel Re:store Dual treats dark pigment, like melasma and age spots. Anywhere between 3-5 treatments are required depending on the patient, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Generally there is redness and minor puffiness for 1-3 days. Make-up can be worn immediately following the procedure. Both Fraxel Re:pair® and Fraxel Re:store® Dual procedures take between 20-30 minutes for the full face.
Fraxel Re:fine is another non-ablative laser that treats fine lines around the eyes, age spots and sun spots, pigment inconsistencies, and uneven skin tone. As any other non-ablative laser it requires multiple treatments.
