See Fraxel Re:Store In Action
See a Fraxel Re:Store treatment in progress, and listen as Dr. Johnson explains how the treatment works, and the benefits it can offer for a wide variety of skin conditions and skin types.
Dr. Johnson is the first physician in the Dallas Metroplex to have the newest 2009 generation Fraxel Re:Store technology. In the past, laser resurfacing meant long recovery periods and pain, for good results. Today, new technologies allow physicians to treat the same skin faster, with very little downtime, and minimal pain. In 2001, a team of Fraxel engineers, researchers and scientists pioneered a laser skin science called fractional photothermolysis. This approach to skin resurfacing, when combined with Fraxel’s advanced technological intelligence or SmartXide Dot Therapy, delivers efficacy and safety. For patients, that means remarkable results and minimal downtime – which simply didn’t exist before Fraxel.
Fraxel: The No-Downtime Procedure
Fraxel Re:Store treats microscopic volumes of skin with each unique pulse, leaving the surrounding area intact for fast healing. Innovations Medical can constantly change the settings on the machine to allow for more treatment coverage. This ability allows us to treat specific skin problems individually.
Results of Fraxel Re:Store Treatments

Collagen Denaturing and Skin Resurfacing
Fraxel Re:store results in both facial resurfacing and pigmentation reduction, as well as collagen denaturing to depths of 1.6 mm. The skin heals much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, because instead of the skin healing from the bottom up (as in traditional laser resurfacing procedures) the skin heals from the outside of the dot inward. This healing type allows Fraxel and SmartXide Dot to have great results without a month of peeling and downtime. Innovations Medspa uses Fraxel Re:Store on and off the face, including areas like the neck, chest, abdomen, thighs, arms, and hands.
How small? Try one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle!
If you look at a newsprint photo up close, you’ll see that the image is actually composed of thousands of tiny spots of ink. Similarly, as seen in this skin sample under a microscope, the Fraxel re:store™ laser produces thousands of microscopic treatment zones that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Each zone is just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle.
