The Fraxel Re:pair (CO2) laser from Solta Medical was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Clinical trials performed at our Center were instrumental in approval by the FDA. This laser is for rejuvenation of the skin on the face and body. The laser works well for deeper wrinkles, scars, acne scars, and also tightens the skin.

How does Fraxel Re:pair Work?
Fractional lasers like the Fraxel Re:pair work at a cellular level in the skin to produce natural, long-lasting benefits. The device creates micro-channels in the dermal layers at a prescribed depth to address the patient’s precise concerns and goals. These controlled injuries stimulate the body’s regenerative process, including cell renewal and collagen production.
The treatment is comfortable for patients after the application of a topical anesthetic. Recovery is usually 3-14 days, during which the skin may flake and peel. A single treatment produces dramatic and long-lasting results.
When Will I See Results?
Healing after a Fraxel Re:pair treatment usually takes 3-14 days. Once your skin has recovered from your procedure, you should notice an improvement. Those results will continue to progress for up to 6 months.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
Healing from Fraxel usually takes 3-14 days, although redness and swelling could linger a bit longer. Most patients head back to regular activities within about one week.
