Fraxel® re-store

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.

How does it work?

A handpiece is used on your skin that will help exfoliate and suction away dead skin cells. No chemicals are used in this process and those skin cells that are healthy are left.

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, Retionols or have any peels for at least one week prior to treatment.
