Fraxel Restore is not going to work for facial redness... Fraxel Restore is for sundamage, dyschromias, texture and resurfacing. Hope this helps. Dr. Grant Stevens Marina PlasticSurgery Associates Marina del Rey, CA The Institute
Fraxel is great for brown spots and wrinkles. Follow Fraxel treatments with IPL to treat redness. IPL works best for redness when you don't use topical anesthesia.
Fraxel Restore Dual is not the best treatment for facial redness. A visible light IPL with high energy short pulses or a pulsed dye laser are the best devices for treating facial redness.
Fraxel Re:store laser is a great treatment to stimulate collagen, improve pigmentation and minimize acne scars, but it does not treat blood vessels that cause facial redness. IPL would be an appropriate treatment for the redness.
