Fraxel Restore uses a laser in order to target the lower layers of the skin. In doing so, not only are the oil glands affected, but patients will also be able to see a reduction in lines and wrinkles. Safe and relatively painless, Fraxel Restore is a procedure which can work for all skin tones, though medium skin tone patients will want to speak with their doctor about the possibility of complications.
What Medium Skin Tones Can Expect
Unlike traditional laser treatments, Fraxel Restore is a procedure which affects the lower layers of the skin. In doing so, this protects the outer layers of skin where the skin coloring is seen. For those with medium skin tones, this means they have a lower risk of skin discoloration as a result of this laser treatment. However, as with any procedure, there is a slight risk of discoloration immediately after the treatment. It is helpful for patients to speak to their physicians about the risk they might encounter for their specific skin tone and type.
With Fraxel Restore, patients can smooth out scars, lines and wrinkles by focusing on the lower layers of skin where collagen is produced. This process helps the skin produce new skin cells, which are firmer and more youthful.
