What should I expect from Fraxel Laser Treatment?

I am 43 years old and have been a lifeguard for the past 20 years of my life. The sun has taken a toll on my skin and it looks like a Fraxel laser treatment will be a good option for me. What types of results should I expect for severely weathered facial skin?

Fraxel laser treatments help skin texture, acne scars and sun damaged skin. It usually takes multiple treatments and works doubly well with photofacials.  The redness and swelling and flakiness for 3 to 6 days.

Our practice has moved to the Halo laser treatment for sun damage or textural improvement.  Our patients like the results better and the downtime is more towards 4 days.  we still use fraxel for localized areas such as the crowsfeet or scars.
