What is Fraxel re:store®?
Fraxel re:store® is a non-invasive, non-ablative laser skin treatment that can resurface the skin, uncovering the younger skin underneath. It can help give you:
- Smoother, fresher looking skin
- Improved tone and texture
- Reduced unwanted brown spots
- Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
- Improve appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
How does it Work?
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target 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 untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
What is the Experience Like?
Most patients describe feeling a sensation of heat during the treatment. A topical anesthetic agent or cold air may be used to minimize this. Afterwards, most patients feel like they have sunburn, which normally diminishes after a few hours. There can be some swelling and redness for 2-3 days, but these are typically minimal. Some patients experience minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, bronzed skin. These after effects will vary from patient to patient and depending on the intensity of the treatment.
Below is a list of typical prices for a course of treatment for areas that are commonly treated. *However, as each course of treatment is tailored to the patient, these costs may vary slightly. The Consultant Plastic Surgeon will confirm the final price for your particular treatment plan before your treatment begins.
