Remarkable results you can see and feel
Fraxel re:store™ laser treatment is a revolutionary new way to correct aged and damaged skin – without the prolonged downtime or adverse reactions of other resurfacing procedures. Safe and effective, the Fraxel re:store™ laser is cleared by the FDA and has undergone extensive testing in the lab and out in the field. Fraxel re:store™ treatment is the accepted gold standard for treating these conditions:
- Acne scars
- Periorbital wrinkles
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
- Irregular texture
- Sun spots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
How it works
With Fraxel re:store™ treatment, you get dramatic results without going under the knife. Instead, Fraxel re:store™ laser treatment uses points of light to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of your skin. The treatment penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel re:store™ treatment works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands.
What side effects can I expect after a Fraxel treatment and how long will they last?
Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from a Fraxel 1550 treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a limited risk of infection, hyperpigmentation, or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of a treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your physician will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects. Please see our commitment to safety statement for a list of potential side effects.
What should I expect after a Fraxel treatment?
During the first 24 hours after a treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. You can wear make-up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two, and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturizer to reduce the appearance of dry flakes.
How many Fraxel treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.
