Fraxel Restore – Wrinkles, Fine Lines, and Acne Scarring
If you have wrinkles, fine lines, or acne scarring, the Fraxel Restore laser may be the skin rejuvenation solution you’re seeking. Fraxel Restore is a fractional resurfacing treatment. This means it treats only a portion of your skin, leaving the microscopic treatment areas surrounded by healthy skin. This speeds healing after treatment while ensuring gorgeous results. Patients can return to their regular activities with no downtime and no pain medication. This treatment is quick—it takes about 30 minutes to treat the entire face.
We’ve been using this laser since it first became available in 2004, so we have extensive experience in using Fraxel Restore for rejuvenation. While this procedure already provides excellent results, we can make them even better by pairing it with complementary LED photo rejuvenation treatments. Come in and enjoy the benefits of two rejuvenation treatments at the price of just one. We generally recommend a series of 3-5 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
Fraxel Restore Dual – Best for Brown Spots
If you have brown spots and other pigmentation problems, we may recommend the Restore Dual for your laser treatment. This procedure provides long-lasting improvement in the appearance of your skin without downtime. The system is called Fraxel Restore Dual because it is two lasers in one device. It uses the original Restore laser but adds a Thulium laser, which can help to clear brown pigment more quickly. If you have brown spots or other pigmentation problems, this dual system may provide the best results for your skin. This treatment is highly customizable. We can use either laser alone or together in combination, depending on your treatment needs.
Fraxel Restore Dual requires no downtime. Patients have no discomfort after treatment, and pain medications are not needed.
Fraxel Repair – Deep Lines and Wrinkles + Skin Laxity
If you want to tighten skin laxity and improve the appearance of deeper lines and wrinkles, the Fraxel Repair laser is an excellent option. We can use it to treat the entire face or target specific areas (like around the eyes or lips). This treatment also improves skin texture, clears brown spots, fades fine lines, and reduces facial redness.
Only one treatment is needed to obtain results from Repair, although some patients opt for a second treatment to further enhance results. Most patients need about 5-6 days of downtime to recover after treatment.
At Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, we pair Fraxel Repair treatments with complementary LED photo rejuvenation to speed healing and improve results.
