How Deep Does Fraxel Re:Store Go?

If I had a Fraxel treatment with the settings 35/8/8 how deep did that go in terms of microns? Would it have reached into the dermis?

Fraxel for fine lines

Fraxel laser (Re-Store) is a great laser treatment for fine lines and wrinkles. this laser has much less of a social downtime as compared to Fraxel Re-pair. the depth that Fraxel Re-store affects is limited to the the upper third layer of your facial skin. it can affect upto top half of your skin when treating the lower and upepr eyelids as the skin can be very thin in those areas.
