What is the recovery like after Fraxel Restore treatment?
After a Fraxel Restore skin rejuvenation treatment, you may feel minor swelling and redness — almost like you have a sunburn. This usually diminishes in one to three hours. The intensity and duration of your side effects will depend on your healing characteristics as well as the aggressiveness of your treatment. The healing process for your skin can take one to two weeks. During this time, you may experience some redness, swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and sloughing off of the skin. After the sloughing, you may have a rosy glow (pinkness) that remains for several weeks.
