Turn Back the Clock on Aging with Fraxel re:store™
Repairing aging and sun-damaged skin: pixel by pixel, spot by spot. With today’s emphasis on active, healthy lifestyles, many men and women feel younger than they look. Aging and sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and brown spots often clash with our self image. Fortunately, The Fraxel re:store™ skin laser is a proven technology that provides a fresh chance to turn back the clock on aging and is an effective wrinkle treatment.
A Fraxel treatment is performed in our office using primarily topical anesthesia. Each laser skin resurfacing treatment takes about 60 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area(s) being treated. Because the laser resurfacing procedure does not “ablate” or remove the outer skin layer, patients can resume routine activities shortly after treatment. Swelling is minimal and generally resolves in about 2 days. The skin will be dry and have a pinkish tone for 5 to 7 days and old skin cells are being replaced by new collagen enriched cells.
