Fraxel Restore 1550 laser treatment is a non-ablative procedure for mild to severe skin damage. It targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. Fraxel Restore can improve wrinkles, fine lines, and aging spots. Since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.
Fraxel Restore is an FDA approved treatment that uses 1550nm laser to resurface and rejuvenate your skin from the inside out leaving radiant, new skin cells. It is a relatively easy procedure to recover from. The treated areas are slightly swollen and pink for one to two days. Many patients are able to return to normal activities and work the following day, but you can expect to be a little red for about 3 days. If you have something scheduled on your social calendar, you may want to wait 3 to 5 days before moving forward. It is very important to avoid sun exposure after the treatment and to wear sunscreen daily and re-apply if necessary.
The Fraxel Restore can more effectively break up pigments better than other superficial treatments such as chemical peels, dermaplane or microneedling. This laser also helps to improve fine lines and large pores. The expected results should be improved tone, texture with some tightening and improvement of brown pigmented spots. Your overall appearance is fresh, rested, and revitalized.
