Sensitive Skin After Fraxel
Skin sensitivity after treatment with Fraxel tends to be limited and will vary by what kind of treatment you had. If Fraxel Re:Pair, you will have a reddened, sensitive face for up to two weeks. If Re:Store, you shouldn't look or feel chafed. However, you may want to be gentle with your skin, avoid heat, rubbing, and sun. Always protect your skin with a sun block and clothing. If you already have sensitive skin, please be sure to discuss this with your board-certified dermatologist so you can work out an after-treatment plan to minimize sensitivity and keep your skin in good condition.
