The Solta's Fraxel Restore is a 1550 nm. wavelength laser that penetrates the epidermis and targets the dermis. Damaged columns of collagen in the dermis are expelled through the epidermis regenerating the infrastructure of the skin and can help with the epidermal texture, color and tightening.  The Cutera's Genesis laser is a 1064nm. Nd Yag laser that targets the dermis without extrusion of damaged collagen. Supposedly improvement of pore size can occur along with facial redness, but other lasers target  facial redness better.
