Fraxel Re:pair Co2 Laser Treatment Gave Excellent Results - Walnut Creek, CA

I had the fraxel re:pair co2 laser treatment done...

I had the fraxel re:pair co2 laser treatment done on Nov. 4. I am 66 and previously had two fraxel restore treatments which did nothing for me. So I opted to go to the more invasive co2 re:pair laser.

I am delighted with the co2 fraxel re:pair results. It erased all the lines and age spots from my forehead which is now smooth and beautiful.

It improved and made the skin texture on my face and neck much more youthful too.I went out in public with base and sunscreen at nine days and looked okay.

The cons are looking absolutely terrible,red, scabbed and swollen for about four to five days.Tolerable pain after surgery for two days. Aquaphor helped alot. I sm delighted with the result - it's taken ten years off my face and neck.

A friend liked my result so much, she had the same procedure done a month later!


I am 58 and had fraxel restore with minimal results. I made an appointment with your provider based on your recommendation! Thank you for the tip. Elizabeth

After several consultations I came to the conclusion that the fraxel restore would not address my problems. My doctor is recommending the Fraxel Repair. More downtime and more aggressive treatment. My doctor in MA has been doing the Fraxel Repair & Restore for several years and has lots of experience. With all the negative comments I have come to the conclusion that it is really important to go to a doctor that has done the Fraxel Repair many, many times.
It has been over a year since your fraxel repair. How would you rate it today?

My dermatologist owns his own fraxel re:pair co2 laser and has considerable experience even though the procedure is fairly new. He uses tumescent(local) anesthesia and was expert in his treatment, care and aftercare. He is meticulous in achieving an outstanding result. Friendly, supportive staff too.
