The Fraxel family laser treatments, all deliver remarkable results with fast recovery. The range of Fraxel treatments vary in aggressiveness, downtime, number of procedures needed and results. The most aggressive treatment, Fraxel re:pair, can produce dramatic improvement for severely damaged skin. This is a single treatment procedure, but will require more downtime and after treatment wound care. Less aggressive treatments, like Fraxel re:store and re:store dual, can produce significant results for mild to moderately damaged skin over the course of 3 to 6 treatments. Typically, there is no after treatment wound care with these treatments and downtime is minimal.
When considering which treatment option is best for you, you and Dr. Gerrish will discuss the trade-off between downtime and results to determine the best option that fits your skin condition and lifestyle.
