Our doctors use the Fraxel Restore Laser and the Fraxel Re:pair Laser to resurface and repair wrinkled and sun damaged skin. Fraxel Restore Treatment rebuilds damaged skin by passing a laser beam through thousands of microscopic areas in the dermis of your skin. The energy of the laser beam stimulates thinning collagen to thicken and remodel, wrinkles to disappear, and skin to tighten. This treatment also corrects discolored skin such as age spots and sun spots. You get the results of the more traditional laser facial resurfacing with minimal downtime.
Q: How long does the procedure take?
A: Treatment time alone takes 45-60 minutes depending on how vigorous you want your treatment to be. Our medical staff applies lidocaine cream 60 minutes prior to your treatment time. Lidocaine cream helps to numb your skin. Other measures are also taken to keep you comfortable.
Q: Will I miss work?
A: No. Fraxel Restore treatment is well tolerated, and doesn’t involve a long recovery time. It is often referred to as a “lunchtime” procedure. However, if you opt for more aggressive settings you may have more recovery time. Most people have just a day or two of redness and slight swelling. Fraxel Restore is often done in a series of 3-5 treatments for best results.
Q: What does Fraxel laser treat?
A: The FDA found Fraxel laser treatment to be a safe and effective way to treat fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and sun spots.
Q: Does Fraxel laser treatment hurt?
A: Our patients put on a lidocaine cream 60 minutes before treatment to control discomfort. We also have other pain control options such as locally blocking sensitive areas to work in tandem with the lidocaine. We aim to give you the best results, and your comfort level is very important to us.
