Fraxel Re:Pair CO2 Laser Benefits

Back To Blog Overview

Fraxel Re:Pair CO2 is an advanced laser treatment that can turn back the clock on skin aging to refresh your appearance and the overall health of your skin. Read on to learn how you can benefit from Fraxel laser treatments with our expert team of cosmetic and laser physicians at Reflections Center for Cosmetic Medicine. 

What is the Fraxel Re:Pair CO2 Laser? 

The Fraxel Re:Pair CO2 laser is a newer type of treatment called Fractional Deep Dermal Ablation (FDDA™). It is also referred to as a micropeel because it removes microscopic layers of tissue in the deep layers of the face. By removing damaged deep tissues, the body’s natural healing process is triggered and a new layer of healthy, youthful-looking skin is revealed. This regenerative process will significantly improve skin elasticity and firmness to turn back the clock on natural aging.

Cosmetic specialists all over the country agree that Fraxel laser treatment is the way to go, from experts at Reflections Medical Spa in New Jersey to other facilities across the U.S. “[The device] is a great skin resurfacing technology that has shown consistent safety and efficacy over the years that it has been in widespread use throughout the world,” said Yale University-trained surgeon Alexander Rivkin, quoted by Monsters and Critics. “It is my go-to resurfacing laser for patients who cannot afford the downtime [of more invasive techniques].”

Conditions Treated with the Fraxel Laser 

The Fraxel laser is one of the best treatment options for scars and rough skin texture. As demonstrated by Dr. Chasin, microchannels created with the Fraxel laser allow topical steroids and serums to absorb deeper into the skin. This increases their effectiveness and leads to exceptional results.

Fraxel Re:Pair is also an effective treatment for fine lines, deeper wrinkles, enlarged pores, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, redness, and stretch marks. It can be used on the face, neck, hands, and arms to rejuvenate healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

Fraxel Laser Results

Another benefit of the Fraxel Re:Pair laser is the dramatic impact it can have on your skin’s quality and appearance. After Fraxel laser treatments, patients will see noticeably smoother, brighter, and more evenly toned skin. These results can last for up to six months and will continue to improve with additional laser sessions.

Kathy Weatherwax, who underwent the procedure, said that she wanted to “look brighter and younger and fresher,” as quoted by the Centre Daily Times. “I wanted maximum results with minimum downtime because I have two little ones.” Following the treatment, the 48-year-old mom said that she felt she could pass for a decade younger.

Are There Any Risks?

Since Fraxel Re:Pair is an aggressive laser, not everyone is a candidate. Patients with a history of autoimmune disorders, skin sensitivity, or predisposition to cold sores might not be candidates. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding or have been prescribed isotretinoin in the last year, you will have to wait to receive treatment. This laser is also not safe for patients with darker skin tones. 

It is also important that patients be prepared for recovery after their Fraxel laser treatment. Redness and flakiness are common for about four days. It is necessary to avoid sun exposure and keep your healing skin moisturized so that new cells can effectively regenerate. If the Fraxel Re:Pair CO2 laser is not right for you, we have many other options and help you find the right one for your individual needs and treatment goals.
