Different recovery/risk profiles for Fraxel Repair, Mixto, and medical grade TCA?

Cast your net wide for a solution rather than a treatment.
Firstly a face to face consult with realistic expectations and close clinical examination is needed. If you have acne, treatment is medical, and not laser. A general dermatologist can help. If you have wrinkling and pore enlargement, fractional devices can help. This may include Co2, Fractional Picosure Focus, or even microneedling RF with PRP. If you have type 3 skin like myself, I would opt for Pico lasers, or microneedling with PRP using insulated needles like the INFINI RF.
I would not use Fraxel RePair on type 3 skin for the reasons outlined in the video below. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Least risky laser for medium skin tone
Facial Aging in Darker Skin: Lasers like Fraxel/Clear + Brilliant, RF like VIVA, Peels, Fillers, Skin Care
settings for lasers,
microneedling/PRP, skin care and peels help to make darker skin
smoother. There can be reddening for several weeks, which varies by
patients. If you want to minimize downtime/redness, you can get
gentler treatments over a longer period of time. Please
see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
