Recovery and downtime of a Fraxel re:pair treatment.

Recovery time varies per patient and depends on the level of treatment, which will be discussed in detail at your consultation with the doctor.


Expected recovery from Fraxel re:pair:

Typical downtime is 2-4 weeks. Swelling associated with laser treatments usually disappear in 1-2 weeks. The total healing process can take up to 6 months.

How does Fraxel re:pair work?

 Fraxel re:pair uses a patented fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. Through fractional technology, thousands of microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the skin to remove old and damaged skin cells, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. Your body’s own natural healing process is stimulated, which replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin. 

How many treatments will I need?

The Fraxel re:pair is designed to address specific skin concerns in a single treatment. Please consult Dr Hollenbach to discuss your skin concerns and whether Fraxel re:pair is suitable for you.

When will I see results?

Soon after recovery from the Fraxel re:pair procedure, the surface of your skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. In the months following, you’ll see even more results as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal. Results can last for years depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skincare regimen.
