3 Doctor Answers | Asked by NatG in San Francisco
It is true that new collagen can grow for months after a deep a laser treatment. Your body gets new skin cells on the surface about every 4-6wks so it could be a number of things you're experiencing, all of which are beneficial! "Dr.D"
Fraxel Repair and Fraxel Restore induce new collagen production and whether it is this or nerve ending rejuvenation within the new collagen causing the tingling is not known, but it is a common symptom in laser resurfacing and surgical reconstruction.
Well, it is difficult to say for certain. But after a deep Fraxel treatment, your skin heals itself with epidermal resurfacing and collagen remodeling. The nerve endings may "tingle" during this healing period. So the short answer to your question is yes.
