Uncover the skin of your youth!

What makes your skin look older?

Over the years, your skin is exposed to sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue and lifestyle factors such as smoking, which can affect your skin’s texture, color and tightness. Your skin contains two proteins, collagen and elastin, which keep your skin youthful and tight. But as you age and get more sun exposure those proteins break down faster than your body can rebuild them. As a result, your skin may start to sag and show damage like wrinkles, deep frown lines or sun spots.

What does Fraxel re:store do?

  • Fraxel re:store® laser uses patented technology to target aging and sun damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin.
  • The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time leaving the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes rapid healing.
  • This stimulates your body’s own natural healin process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

The Fraxel re:store Procedure

What should I expect on the day of treatment?

There is no pre-treatment skin care regimen. On the day of your treatment, here is what happens:

  • After cleansing your skin, anesthetic ointment is applied 60-90 minutes prior to treatment.
  • You may also receive other medications as the doctor prescribes.
  • The treatment takes approximately 20-25 minutes for a full face.
  • The anesthetic is completely removed and immediate post photos are taken.

Does it hurt?

  • Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment.
  • To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure.
  • After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.

Is it safe?

As with any laser treatment, there are some potential side effects. The most common effects are swelling and redness, which are typically minimal and subside quickly. Other side effects may include:

  • Minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking
  • Bronzed skin appearance
  • Risk of infection or scarring

As with any laser treatment, there are some potential sideThe intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Please see the Commitment to Safety at the end of this book for a list of all potential side effects.

What will I look like after the procedure?

  • During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned and will appear pink or red. You may wear make-up to reduce this sunburned appearance.
  • Your skin will naturally bronze over in the next week or two. As you continue treatment, the sunburnedto- bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment.
  • As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturizer to reduce the appearance
    of dry flakes as instructed.

Is there special post treatment care?

  • There is no special care after treatment. Generally, most patients return to their normal routine within 2-3 days.
  • You will be able to put on your make-up and continue your skincare regimen.
  • We recommend wearing sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and avoiding direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment.

How many treatments will I need?

Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart.

  • Depending on your condition and schedule, we may choose to space treatment sessions further apart.
  • This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.
