What is Fraxel Restore?
Fraxel Restore is a non-ablative fractional laser system that helps improve the tone and texture of your skin, reduce the visible signs of aging, and improve the appearance of acne and surgical scars. This laser resurfacing treatment works by using targeted laser energy to create microchannels that stimulate the production of collagen and improve the overall quality of the skin. Fraxel Restore can be used to treat enlarged pores, acne and surgical scars, age spots, sun damage, irregular pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. Treatment sessions typically take between 20 and 30 minutes. A topical anesthetic is applied to the designated treatment area about an hour prior to the treatment session to reduce any discomfort you may experience.
You may experience some mild redness and swelling in the treated area for the first few days following a treatment session. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own. We typically recommend patients have three to five sessions scheduled about two to four weeks apart. Some patients may require more treatments or treatments scheduled closer together depending on their aesthetic goals and the condition being treated.
What is Fraxel Dual?
This laser resurfacing treatment can be used to improve fine line and wrinkles, smooth uneven skin tone and texture, improve the appearance of scars, and treat unwanted pigmented lesions. This laser system features a built-in cooling system to minimize any discomfort associated with the treatment and a topical numbing cream is typically applied an hour before a treatment session to further reduce any discomfort you may experience. Fraxel Dual laser treatments can be performed in a quick 20 to 30-minute procedure and most patients are able to immediately return to their daily activities following the treatment.
Some patients may experience some mild redness or swelling, similar to a mild sunburn, for the first few days following a treatment session. We recommend patients use additional sun protection if they plan to spend time in the sun as laser treatments can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. The Fraxel Dual laser is an effective treatment for age spots, brown spots, and hyperpigmentation and is a good option for treating larger areas of the body, like the legs, arms, back, and chest.
