Two Kinds of Fraxel Laser Skin Resurfacing for All Your Skin Needs

by

The Fraxel Re:store is the original non-invasive skin laser with ‘pixel’ technology. Our version is the new Dual with two laser treatment modes:

* One laser for treating the fine, wrinkles or acne scarring of the face,
* The second laser, targets sunspots and abnormal pigmentation of the face.

After the treatment, you will experience some redness for several days and if the pigment mode is used, you will see some peeling of the pigment spots after 3-4 days. Only a light moisturizer and sunblock are needed after the treatment. The system can safely be used on the face, neck, chest and hands.

The Re:store is designed to get results over several treatment sessions, with each treatment bringing you smoother and fresher-looking skin, improved tone & texture, and fewer unwanted brown spots.

The Fraxel Re:store is FDA-approved and is the only laser which improves the pigment while treating the fine lines and creases, especially in the lower eyelid region.

The Fraxel Re:pair laser is a more powerful CO2 laser, designed as a one treatment option for mature skin with accumulated sun-damage. The Re:pair laser also tightens the thin skin of the eyelids and softens the lipstick lines around the mouth.

The Re:pair laser is done in the office under sedation anesthesia to provide the comfort needed for the deeper treatment. This is followed by three days of facial washes and a coating of ointment, while the skin regenerates. Thereafter, a pink tone replaces the redness over the next 5-7 days.

The Re:pair CO2 laser is FDA-approved, and studies have shown that :

* The laser can reduce the risk of skin cancer
* Significantly repairs the sun-damaged skin,
* Produces an overall tightening effect.

As a side benefit, sun and age spots are also reduced. This laser is safe for the face, neck, chest and hands. The procedure can be combined with surgery or fillers if desired.
