One Dr. says Fraxel is it! Other says Fraxel Repair benefits don't last after swelling goes down. 57 yr old with lines around the mouth some sun damage, moderate wrinkling. No eye problems except some crow's feet.
Fraxel Repair resurfacing will help your neck
Resurfacing will help
Whether you choose dermabrasion, or fractional CO2 resurfacing, you will get improvement. You might need 2 sessions over 6-12 months, and perhaps a touch of Botox to improve the lip pursing. No single procedure will give you 100% improvement, so realistic expectation are needed.
I commonly perform Fraxel repair treatments with minilifts, Necklifts and the two combined. Dermabrasion is largely out of favor these days. Fraxel repair will improve mouth lines but will not completely eliminate them, particularly the deeper ones.
The benefits of fraxel repair persist for at least a year, certainly well after the swelling resolved, as has been documented in many histologic studies performed during the FDA approval process.
