As I have said Fraxel Re:pair is a cumulative process. I wish they would have specified the exact mj settings. I would consider the lower settings to be ineffective for all but the most minimal scars. As for lasers being too harsh, I have been treated 5 times at the 70mj - 60% setting with no after effects. I have found NOTHING that worked except Fraxel Re:pair.
Did you notice under some of the Repair studies, they used up to 100mJ/pulse.
But, I thought 70mJ was the absolute max safe setting limit.
If you look at the study by Chan et al., they used the standard safe settings of max 70mj, with max coverage of 45%, but the improvement was only mild to moderate compared to the study that used 100mj/pulse. (Chans study was also only 1 sitting compared to 2-3 for the other, so that obviously is a factor also).
Did anyone else catch that? Can repair really be used at 100mj safely?
