Fraxel® re:store™ is considered a fractional laser procedure, which involves treating only a “fraction” of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the healing process and reduce recovery time.
This Fraxel system uses gentle erbium laser that is non-ablative (does not remove the skin) and requires a shorter recovery time. The laser targets the more superficial layers of the skin and is beneficial for treating fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and sun damage. Fraxel also encourages collagen growth, and may be used to treat pre-cancerous skin lesions called Actinic Keratosis if other treatment options are not well tolerated.
This treatment is best suited for the patient who requires little downtime but is willing to undergo several treatments. Dr. Barone typically recommend three to five treatments, with optimal results seen two to three months after the completion of the series. Package pricing varies depending on the areas treated and how many treatments are included.
