FAQs

You will begin to notice results after the first treatment with full results reached after 4-6 treatments. Because these treatments stimulate your body to produce collagen and heal itself from the inside, you can continue to see improvement for up to a year following treatment.
If you receive the full series of recommended treatments and maintain a good skincare routine your results will be permanent.
Following treatment, your skin will be sensitive, and you may experience sunburn-like redness. Mild swelling is usually seen for about three days. We will provide you with a special serum to apply for the first few days, but you can resume using regular skincare products by the third day following treatment. You should treat your skin gently for the next week or two, avoiding sunlight and alcohol based products. Cold compresses and steroid creams may be used as necessary.
You may experience some discomfort during your scar-reduction treatments. Depending on the depth of the needling needed during The Eraser treatment, you may feel anything from a slight sensation to more significant pricking. Fraxel has been described as an intense prickling sensation. We can apply a numbing cream to minimize discomfort, and for sensitive patients, we suggest an oral painkiller and can prescribe one for you if needed.
The Eraser is safe and effective for all skin types. However, there is a risk of hyperpigmentation when using Fraxel on dark skin.
