Repair or Re:Store(older model)
To find out about Fraxel re:pair
BEWARE: Anyone choosing any laser treatment should make sure the physician treating them knows what they are doing and has had years of experience doing the procedure (not just a weekend course.) There are many GP's who do not have laser surgical experience, or are "just at the location" when the patient is being treated by a "laser tech."
As with any new technology it may be best to wait and see, instead of being the face the clinic is experimenting on (don't be in the top 10).--Always ask for actual pictures of their clients--NOT STOCK PHOTOS....Be safe, you only have one face.
The Fraxel Re:pair is a very new technology combined with CO2 resurfacing and is higher risk for permanent scarring. As with many new skin treatments time will only improve the outcome and treatment.
Information on Fraxel re:store tm (SR 1500 model)
Fraxel Laser Treatment improves your skin's appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots. The fractional treatment allows the skin to heal much faster. The purpose of the Fraxel is to smooth fine lines and uneven skin texture, reduce or eliminate pigment differences, and improve the appearance of scars.
