Fraxel Re:Pair

fraxel repair device

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 wrinklesscars, acne scars, and also tightens the skin

The board-certified physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York have an extensive range of laser devices that allow us to customize all our patient’s treatments to ensure an optimal outcome. We have the experience and expertise to help you meet all your aesthetic goals with comfortable treatments and minimal downtime in most cases. Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.

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.

Questions and Answers

Q: Is Fraxel Re:pair Safe?

A: Yes. The Fraxel laser was originally approved by the FDA in 2005, demonstrating a long track record of safety and efficacy. Because of the way fractional lasers work, risk factors tend to be much lower than with an ablative laser treatment. Our board-certified physicians have extensive experience using this device and will use their expertise to customize your treatment so it is as safe and effective as possible. 

Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A: Patients often achieve their full results with a single treatment session. However, others might require a series of appointments to produce an optimal outcome. Your doctor will assess your concerns and goals during your consultation to create a personalized treatment plan that works best for you.

Q: How Long Do Results Last?

A: Fraxel results can be very long-lasting. You can take steps to extend your results by using medical-grade skincare products and protecting your skin from the sun daily. 

Q: Are There Any Side Effects?

A: Common side effects after a Fraxel Re:pair treatment might include redness, swelling, and skin crusting and flaking. These symptoms usually persist 7-10 days, although some can last for up to 2 weeks or longer. 

Q: Am I A Good Candidate For Fraxel Re:pair Treatments?

A: You might be a good candidate for Fraxel Re:pair if you have aging symptoms or sun damage you want to reduce or eliminate. This procedure works on both men and women and a wide range of skin tones. You must be prepared to take a few days of downtime to give yourself time to heal.
