Hi Cpj,

Fraxel and Deep Fx are "fractionated CO2 lasers", but only Fraxel is Fraxel.

The downtime for Fraxel repair (Solta) is 7 to 10 days until make up can hide the redness. Deep FX (Lumenis) downtime is about the same. I am not familiar with the downtime of Syneron's Emax.

With these fractionated CO2 laser treatments, usually the less the downtime, the less the ultimate result.

Good luck and be well.
