Question: How quickly will I see the results of Fraxel treatment, and will there be any redness or swelling after the procedure?
Answer: Fraxel can cause some redness and mild swelling to the area being treated and in some cases even cause a small amount of superficial crusting of the skin though that is relatively unlikely. The healing occurs over the first few days and there is very minimal if any downtime associated with this since you should be able to use cover makeup. The results typically take a couple of weeks to be visible where you will see some improvement in the pigmentation and very minor textural improvements as well. For more significant improvement, you may want to consider an ablative fractionated treatment, which will certainly add to downtime but will also give you much more significant results.
