Algebra 101: Fraxel re:store X 4 Does Not Equal One Fraxel Re:pair
Both Fraxel re:pair and re:store have their indications for usage, but even with multiple restores, there is not the skin tightening that is seen with a single repair treatment. In some cases, brown pigment improvement (sun damage) can be improved more with multiple restores versus a single repair. The repair is coming out with a new hand piece that will treat pigment changes in a single treatment with less downtime than the current repair treatment. Good luck and be well.
