"Oozing" After Fraxel Laser...There Has to Be a Better Word Than Oozing...Weeping?

Hi Cleo,

With Fraxel re:pair it is normal to have a small amount of weeping or oozing for 24 to 48 hours. By 48 hours the skin is re-epithialized (covered with new skin).

With Fraxel re:store it would be most unusual for any weeping. There have been occasions where a blister may form.

In any case, contact your treating physician immediately if you have any concerns.

Good luck and be well.
