Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

Fraxel re:pair CO2

Through aging and cumulative sun exposure, your skin loses its natural elasticity and vitality. Fine lines and wrinkles develop, sun damage emerges and the skin’s tone and texture becomes uneven.

As the latest addition to the Fraxel family, Fraxel re:pair CO2 is the only CO2 laser on the market which delivers the efficacy of traditional ablative lasers without the prolonged downtime. While conventional CO2 lasers ablate the entire skin surface, Fraxel re:pair CO2 is the only laser which provides ablative efficacy with a quick recovery. With remarkable results after just one treatment, this safe, non-invasive procedure removes years from your appearance. Skinworks is successfully treating the face and eye area to reduce lines and wrinkles, correct sun damage and discolouration, and smooth uneven texture.

How it works

The unique technology behind Fraxel re:pair CO2 uses microscopic treatment zones to penetrate deep into the dermis to selectively ablate tissue while sparing much of the surrounding areas. These treatment zones stimulate your body's natural healing response, replacing old tissue with younger, smoother, healthier skin.

The procedure begins with the application of a topical anaesthetic cream to enhance your comfort. Local anaesthetic may also be added to deeper dermal areas for extra comfort. Procedure times vary depending on the surface area treated.

Recovery

It is normal to experience approximately five to seven days of redness and swelling similar to a sunburn. Some mild flaking may also occur which is moderated by prescribed skincare. Within days you can return to your normal routine, wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30+ daily.
