Was the Original Fraxel SR750 a CO2 Laser?

Many years ago I had the blue dye Fraxel SR750 laser performed 3 times with little improvement to skin texture and rolling scars. I'm considering the Repair laser now, but I was wondering if the original blue dye was a CO2 like the Repair? or erbium like the Restore?

Fraxel SR750 is not CO2

The Fraxel SR750 was the Restore, not Repair. The SR750 was the earlier model of the 1550nm. wavelength, not the carbon dioxide, so if you have the Repair treatment, it will be very different, in down-time, and effectiveness, from your SR750 previous treatments.
