Mini versus Full Fraxel

This is a new one to me.  There is no laser named the Mini or Full Fraxel.  You might be referring to the Fraxel Restore which is a non-ablative laser versus the Fraxel Repair which is an ablative laser.  The Fraxel Restore treatments are usually performed in a series of 4-6 treatments waiting a month in between whereas the Repair is a single treatment with about a week of downtime.  On the other hand you could be referring to Mini as treating a small area with Full treating a large area.

Fraxel Restore Fraxel Dual and Fraxel Repair are the only ones worth mentioning

There is no Fraxel Mini This must be the effort by a physician to brand themselves.  there is no need for this if the doctor is practicing good medicine and obtaining great results, they can refer to Fraxel Resotre, Dual or Repair.
