While you’ve been diligently treating facial skin for the texture and tone changes that come with age, you might have forgotten that your hands go through similar changes. Fraxel re:store, a nonablative laser, can work double duty on the back of the hands, treating both crinkly skin and discoloration.
One key advantage of Fraxel re:store is that it can be used on patients with dark skin who may experience textural problems without pigment issues, due to the photoprotective properties of melanin.
Topical anesthetic is applied 45 minutes before each 10-minute treament, and patients report less discomfort than with facial Fraxel:restore treatments. Some see improvement after a single treatment, but three to four session are usually necessary for optimal results, which can be long-lasting with diligent use of sunscreen.
