Fraxel Repair Lite Vs. a Single Fraxel Restore Treatment

Does a Fraxel Repair Lite treatment provide the same result for fine lines as a single Fraxel Restore treatment at medium settings? And does the Fraxel Lite offer any tightening benefits at all or is it too mild to treat fine lines and skin tone?

There is no standard setting for a Fraxel Lite treatment

There is no standard setting for a “Lite” Fraxel treatment. Different doctors can use different settings. There probably is no medical study that has compared these two in a scientifically controlled experiment; so you would have to rely on anectdotal reports from doctors who have tried this.

Fraxel reapir Lite versus Single Treatment with Fraxel restore

Hi Drom,

I have found that patients undergoing Fraxel repair Lite see more improvement in their skin than patients who undergo a single treatment with Fraxel restore.  There is some improvement in fine lines and skin tone as well.

Good luck and be well.
