Fraxel® re-store

Fraxel ® treatment is an easy, safe and non-invasive way to help you have beautiful skin and will help you to reduce the visible signs of aging and return your skin to its original beauty. To arrange a consultation to determine if Fraxel treatment is right for you, please call us at (573) 884-6155.

How does it work?
Fraxel laser treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body's own natural healing process, replacing the old damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy ones.

When can I go back to work?
Right away. There is no recovery time and all normal activities can be resumed immediately.

What results can I expect?
While results may vary from patient to patient, your skin will look more radiant, smooth and glowing. Fine lines, skin discolorations and scars are greatly minimized.

Before the treatment, will I need to prepare?
There is no special preparation needed. We do ask patients to apply sunscreen twice a day for the first six months after treatment. In addition we ask that you not use Retin-A, Avage, Retinols or have any peels for at least one week prior to treatment.
