Hi Ava, thank you for the question.
Improvement following Fraxel treatment (and other ablative fractional treatments) is dependent on the type of Fraxel machine being used (see below), condition/concern that is being addressed, the area being treated, condition of the skin (degree of sun damage), age of the skin, depth of wrinkles and/or scarring, AND the operator using the machine.
Typically one should start to see visible improvement after 2 to 3 sessions but some patients notice improvements after a single session.
