How is a Fraxel treatment different from other laser skin rejuvenation procedures?

Traditionally, two kinds of laser treatment have been available for cosmetic skin treatment: ablative and non-ablative.

Typical ablative treatments, which use a high temperature to vaporize unwanted tissue, can be effective—but with significant side effects and several weeks of recovery time.

Non-ablative treatments, meanwhile, have very few side effects and low downtime, but they commonly require numerous treatments to produce more modest results.Fraxel laser treatment delivers the potency of ablative treatments with the faster recovery time of non-ablative laser. So you get the best of both worlds: dramatic results and less downtime.

How long do the positive effects of Fraxel re:pair treatment last?

The results of Fraxel re:pair treatment are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.

What side effects should I expect after a Fraxel re:pair treatment and what are the risks?

Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, there might be some pinpoint bleeding following the procedure, as well as some oozing for up to 48 hours until the wounds close. The most common side effects are oedema (swelling), which usually subsides after a week, and erythema (redness), which may last up to a month, depending on the aggressiveness of treatment. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, oozing and crusting.

As with all ablative laser procedures, there is a risk of delayed wound healing, infection, pigmentary changes (hyperpigmentation) and/or scarring.
