Can One Compare the Results from a Pearl Fractional Treatment to That of Fraxel Repair?

Is the downtime similar?

Hi M,

The downtime for Fraxel repair is greater than for most other fractionated CO2 laser skin rejuvenation treatments.  With fractionated CO2 laser treatments, usually the longer the downtime, the better the skin rejuvenation result.  Good luck and be well.
