Fraxel re:pair™ is a revolutionary laser treatment to correct deeper wrinkles, tighten skin and remove years from your appearance. It is a safer, more effective and more comfortable alternative to surgical procedures.
Fraxel re:pair will:
Smooth skin tone and texture
Tighten wrinkled and saggy skin
Soften deep frown lines and wrinkles
Improve age spots, sunspots and sun-induced redness
“Add it all up, and Fraxel re:pair treatment is a resurfacing procedure that treats deeper wrinkles, tightens skin and removes years from your appearance.”
Results are immediate and progressive. Soon after treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. And over three to six months, you’ll get even more results as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal. Results can last for years depending on your age and skin condition.
How does it work?
Fraxel re:pair™ uses a high-intensity carbon dioxide (CO2) laser Through fractional technology, thousands of microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the skin to remove old and damaged skin cells. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, which replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, which treat the entire skin surface, the Fraxel re:pair laser targets only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your body to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once.
How many treatments will you need?
Clinical studies suggest that for most people, maximum results may be realised in just one treatment session.
How long before you can return to normal activities?
Because Fraxel re:pair uses fractional laser technology, it has a much faster recovery time than other ablative procedures; however, recovery time varies from patient to patient. Most men and women can expect to return to their routine activities within 7 days. The Fraxel re:pair treatment can be tailored to your particular needs. Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, you may experience a shorter or longer period of downtime.
Is it safe?
The Fraxel re:pair laser offers great results because it is an aggressive treatment.
