What is Fraxel Re:Pair?
Fraxel Re:Pair is the newest generation of resurfacing techniques to correct aged and damaged skin without prolonged downtime. Fraxel Re:Pair is an ablative CO2 laser system that provides treatment both on the surface and deep in the dermis with a single treatment.
Fraxel Re:Pair uses points of light to precisely treat thousands of microscopic areas of your skin. The treatment penetrates deep into the skin to remove old, damaged skin cells, stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, and replaces the cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
Because the technology is so precise, Fraxel Re:Pair works not only on the face, but also on delicate skin areas such as the neck, chest and hands.
Is Fraxel Re:Pair™ safe?
With Fraxel Re:Pair treatment, you get dramatic results without the risks and complications of surgery. The Fraxel Re:Pair system, initially cleared for ablation, coagulation and skin resurfacing, is the only fractional ablative resurfacing system cleared by the FDA for its specific indications of use. These indications include treatment of:
- Irregular texture
- Sun spots and age spots (pigmented lesions)
- Sun-induced redness (vascular dyschromia)

What should be expected during the treatment?
Fraxel Re:Pair is performed in our office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied before the procedure begins. There is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn.
What should be expected after the treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you will have some degree of redness and swelling, which usually fades over about a week. Your physician will give specific instructions about what to expect for your particular treatment and how to minimize side effects.
Soon after treatment, the surface of the skin will feel softer, look brighter and show a more even tone. Over three to six months, you’ll get even more results as the deeper layers of skin continue to heal.
