I have dry skin in areas that I want to treat with Fraxel Restore. Can Fraxel Restore encourage the new skin to produce more moisture? Are people with dry skin bad candidates for Fraxel? Thanks.
Can Fraxel Restore Encourage the Skin to Produce Moisture?

Fraxel Restore cannot cause skin to produce more moisture
Fraxel Restore cannot cause skin to produce more moisture. In fact, the laser will dry out the skin causing it to not heal as well for people who have severe dry skin.
