The Fraxel Repair is a more aggressive treatment and will yield better results for these issues in most patients. Simply look at the before and after photos of patients treated with both devices and you will see the clear cut winner. I would combine the use of a q-switched alexandrite laser to be sure all age spots are gone. Pixel laser requires multiple treatments, and will incur more social downtime when taking multiple treatments into account. Even with multiple treatments with the Pixel, the results don't approach those of the Fraxel repair. Take care, Dr. Groff
