I recommend that you check back with your doctor about your Fraxel Restore Treatment.

Redness will last a variable amount of time depending on a lot of factor.  If you are hot, exercising, upset or if the skin is dry or irritated or infected it will stay red a lot longer.  I would Recommend good moisturization, 100% sun avoidance and checking back with the doctor who did your procedure if you are concerned.  Usually the redness will gradually fade over a few weeks if you are healed.
