Downtime from Fraxel Repair - What to Expect
I am 45 and lately I've been feeling like I just look old so I wanted to try the Fraxel repair to go after some wrinkles, sun damage, et al. However my husband's class reunion is coming up and I don't want to look like a burn victim in public. How long does it normally take to heal after Fraxel repair? How long before you can at least cover up the redness with makeup? Does the peeling go on for a long time?
