Points from the Video:
00: 05- Dr. Persky discusses the difference between Fraxel Laser and Fraxel Restore;
00:26- He shares how people often ask about more conservative and less invasive procedures;
00:50- He talks about how Fraxel Repair can be more effective than Fraxel Restore treatment;
Dr Persky says that the original fraxel laser is called fraxel restore. It is a non ablative laser which means it does not remove any skin, and just heats the skin. A few years later, the company came out with fraxel repair which is a fractionated carbon dioxide laser; It is ablative which means that the skin is vaporized when the laser hits it. People often ask ‘Can I have more conservative, less invasive fraxel restore treatment, or could I have multiple treatments of fraxel restore, and how many of those do I need to equal one fraxel repair?’ Dr. Persky says that unfortunately, you can’t have enough fraxel restore laser treatments to equal one fraxel repair treatment. So the fractionated CO2 in one treatment can do more than 5, 6, 7 or 20 fraxel restore treatments.
