Fraxel re:pair FAQs

How is a Fraxel re:pair treatment different from a Fraxel Dual (1550/1927) treatment?

Both Fraxel re:pair treatment and Fraxel Dual treatment use fractional technology – in different ways.
As an ablative procedure, Fraxel re:pair treatment uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to vaporize microscopic columns of tissue deep within the skin. Fraxel re:pair treatment is a more aggressive procedure and is used to treat the most severe signs of skin damage. Results are achieved in one to two treatments and wound care recovery time (usually 24 – 48 hours) is generally longer than Fraxel Dual treatments.
Fraxel Dual treatment, on the other hand, is a non-ablative technique that intensively treats older skin cells while leaving the skin’s protective barrier intact. This results in less downtime and reduces the need for post-treatment wound care.

How long do the positive effects of Fraxel re:pair treatment last?

The results of Fraxel re:pair treatment are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show more even tone. The following months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal.

What side effects should I expect after a Fraxel re:pair treatment and what are the risks?

Depending on the aggressiveness of your treatment, there might be some pinpoint bleeding following the procedure, as well as some oozing for up to 48 hours until the wounds close. The most common side effects are oedema (swelling), which usually subsides after a week, and erythema (redness), which may last up to a month, depending on the aggressiveness of treatment. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, oozing and crusting. As with all ablative laser procedures, there is a risk of delayed wound healing, infection, pigmentary changes (hyperpigmentation) and/or scarring.

How is Fraxel re:pair treatment performed and does the treatment hurt?

First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, 60 to 90 minutes prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area. Your practitioner may also choose to give you another medication to relax you. The procedure takes approximately 20-30 minutes for a full face treatment.
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment, and there may be some discomfort.

What are the benefits of Fraxel re:pair treatment?

  • Noticeable results in a single treatment
  • Smoother, more even skin tone and texture
  • Softening of deep frown lines and wrinkles
  • Improved appearance of redness caused by sun damage
