Hi Tracy, thank you for the question.
Fraxel can work extremely well for the lines around the eye area and one can expect to see improvement within 2 to 5 sessions depending on their depth, the age of the skin, and the degree of sun damage. Downtime varies from person to person and the settings used but as a general guideline downtime can last between 2 to 7 days. The downtime is usually minimal (one could go to work the next day) but occasionally swelling in this area may take a couple of days to subside. A good idea is to have the procedure performed on a Friday allowing you time to recover over the weekend. As with any technology results are operator dependent.
