Thank you for your question. Arms heal slower than the face so expect to see healing for at least 2 weeks on the arms, this is depending on the energy level selected of course. With fractional treatments, skin peeling is more subtle. Expect the arms to take at least 4 weeks to heal. I hope this helps!
Fraxel on the arms
Arms take much longer to heal than the face. The texture of your skin will be smoother over the next 2 weeks. You must avoid sun exposure on the treated areas.
Fraxel on the body can take 2 weeks to heal
Fraxel on the body can take 2 weeks to heal, so be patient. Your doctor should have educated you about this. Even the face which heals much faster than arms, usually takes 7 days to heal.
