In Topic: Fraxel Restore Dual Or Repair?

02 September 2015 - 06:05 PM

Ok, I'll likely get repair on my other side. That is a lot of repair treatments, just curious how severe was your scarring? I am hoping I would have to do no more than 2.

My scarring was severe enough to warrant Dermabrasion, Regular CO2 full face laser, and 5 Repairs. My self confidence has jumped so much because of Repair that I am the biggest advocate of Repair. My next step is plastic surgery for the effects of aging, and then possibly another Repair. I have to laugh because of one black lady at work who notices everything, and she keeps asking me if I have had Botox because she knew me before Repair. Repair works if done at high intensity, and multiple times. My last 2 full face Repairs only cost me $800 a piece. It was after my 2nd Repair that I noticed the greatest improvement so you may get by with 2. People do 1 at a low setting and then are not satisfied. Either go strong or stay home.

No question about it go with Repair. I was warned off Restore by a plastic surgeon who said it would do no good, and this was before Repair came out. Look at my signature.

I don't post pictures here.  I reached a level of satisfaction that allowed be to stop treatments.  I may do it again as I age.

Tanja - Fraxel Repair is the Gold Standard of Ablative CO2.

That sounds like a ripoff to me. How much extra work does it do to do multiple passes? You are wise to choose ablative CO2, but I would look for another doctor who is more concerned about you than his pocketbook. I had multiple passes for each of my Repairs and I was never charged extra.
