Will Fine Smoker's Lines Disappear with Fraxel Repair?

I am day 8 after Fraxel repair. Things are looking better, but I want to know if the fine smoker's lines that I still see will go away and if the skin on my upper eyelids will continue to tighten after the initial swelling goes away?

These are the two areas that I really wanted to see the most correction in.

Improvement continues for months


Fractional CO2 resurfacing stimulates collagen repair for months. It will help if you do not smoke and perhaps get micro-injections of Botox around the lips during the healing time.

Good luck.
