FAQ

The Fraxel Restore treatment delivers remarkable results with minimal downtime. That means you can rejuvenate your skin on your lunch hour and quickly return to your normal activities.
In an initial consultation, your physician will determine the best Fraxel Restore laser treatment plan for your desired results. Then, when you're ready for treatment, it will be performed in your physician's clinic. Here's what happens:
  • The area of your skin to be treated is thoroughly cleansed 
  • A special topical anesthetic cream is applied for about 30 minutes    
  • The treatment takes just 20 to 25 minutes for a full face treatment
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, a special prescription 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.

After the procedure, depending on the aggressiveness of your Fraxel treatment, you will have some degree of redness, swelling or a sunburn sensation, which are signs that your body's natural healing process is building new skin from the inside out. You can return to routine activities in as little as one hour or, for more aggressive treatments, after one day.A specialized skin care regimen will be prescribed by you MD Cosmedical Solutions doctor to protect, soothe, and further accentuate your Fraxel Laser treatment results.
 
During the first 24 hours after treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or reddish. You can wear make-up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin may naturally bronze over the next week or two. As with sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturizer to reduce the appearance of dry flakes.
 

It is advisable to wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct harsh sun exposure for at least 2 months after your last treatment, and to wear a hat when you’re in the sun.

Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 4 to 5 sessions spaced approximately 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the doctor may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.

Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from Fraxel Restore treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Makeup is used in most instances so that patients may return to work the next day after treatment. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a very limited risk of infection or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your physician will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimize any side effects.

Results of Fraxel Restore Laser will last for many years depending on  your particular condition and how  you take care for your skin. Once your skin  is treated, continue to protect it as described by your medical practitioner.
