Dramatically improve skin texture
Wrinkles appear as depressions in the skin’s surface and can be caused by natural aging or accelerated by your environment (sun exposure), and lifestyle (smoking, unhealthy habits). Depressed acne scarring is the result of the acne breakouts damaging the skin and the tissue beneath. The body attempts to repair the “injured skin” but the healing process is not always flawless.
In both cases, treating wrinkles and depressed scars, improvement in texture is what is sought out. The goal is the same: to stimulate collagen. Fraxel re:pair™ is a laser treatment that provides considerable results in just a few sessions.
Smoother, softer skin awaits
Fraxel® re:pair is a safe and effective laser resurfacing treatment. It is “ablative”, meaning that tissue is gently removed by the laser. Unlike traditional CO2 lasers, the re:pair uses fractional laser technology which means that a fraction of your skin is treated. This approach allows your skin to heal from the untreated skin resulting in a more rapid recovery.
The Fraxel® re:pair recovery time is slightly longer than the Fraxel re:store™ (a non-ablative laser treatment). The first few days involve true downtime (socializing not recommended). Following that, depending on how aggressive your treatment is you may appear pink or red for an additional 7-10 days.
Your specific skin goals
Depending on your goals and skin challenges. Dr. Khanna can address specific areas of concern. For example, wrinkles may be more apparent around your eyes and mouth (areas involving more facial expression) and so treatments can be tailored accordingly.
Depressed acne scars may be concentrated around your temples, cheeks or forehead. In this case, we would treat only the areas requiring textural improvement.
Your goals, downtime capabilities, and lifestyle will ultimately determine which treatment is recommended. As we have multiple lasers that stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers, Dr. Khanna may recommend a combination of treatments for best results.
