How Fraxel re:store laser Treatment Works
Fraxel re:store uses a different technique known as fractional resurfacing. Instead of removing all the outer layers of skin, Fraxel® re:store Laser Skin Resurfacing involves the application of controlled amounts of focused heat into the skin.
Fraxel Laser Treatment Pioneers
Dr. Tina Alster and Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi at the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery were among the first few dermasurgeons worldwide (and the first dermasurgeons in the Washington, DC metropolitan area) to offer Fraxel re:store laser treatment for skin rejuvenation and a host of other skin conditions. Their specific laser techniques have been further refined and exhibited at national and international medical meetings, landing them in the national news as recognized experts in the field.
Research studies conducted by Drs. Alster and Tanzi have shown that an effective treatment regime generally requires three or more treatment sessions at monthly time intervals. Noticeable and progressive skin improvement is typically achieved after each session. The treated skin appears more youthful and smooth. In addition, they have shown that combining Fraxel re:store laser treatment with GentleWaves LED treatment leads to fewer side effects and shorter healing times.
