I'm an Asian with very sensitive skin. So I was quite apprehensive on having treatments on my face. However, after months of mulling over it, I underwent 2 sessions of fractional laser with Dr. Margaret Corcoran. And I'm happy that I did! My pores seem smaller now, my skin tone evened out and my...

Hi! I would like to post about my experience with a fractional laser for acne scar treatment. I have had this procedure done three times, with the first time being in Dec. 2009. I can tell you that this procedure does not work at all for removing acne scars that have been caused by cystic... READ MORE

There are no pros except that Dr. Loury was nice.The cons on the other hand are several. This laser procedure did not work at all and i have never experienced so much pain in my life. It left like I was being tesed every time the laser was used on my skin. By entire body tensed up so much that I... READ MORE

Indeed, an expensive procedure, but well worth it. I had fractional laser treatment and PRP focused on my cheeks and forehead areas. If you're worried about pain, do note it hurts less than I'm sure it's worth subjecting yourself to such a procedure to get those awful holes... READ MORE

It took me a year to decide to do Fractional C02 Laser treatment. I read and studied the different face treatments, I read and also talked to friends who have had different treatments many with marginal results, many required multiple visits and expense. Dr. Elam was very personable and wanted... READ MORE

It was so quick and easy. Down time a little longer than I thought but my skin looks beautiful and I would recommend it highly. There was no pain involved, I didn't take any pain medicine after the procedure was done. Had two facials that helped with the sloughing of the skin.  READ MORE

You might have heard that Fraxel has recently launched together with Philips a fractional laser device that can be used at home. It is called ReAura and currently is not available in the US. It is only sold in the UK and Netherlands. However, I am sure it will be soon be in the US, unless the... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Cooper to have a Micro Laser Peel done to help reduce fine lines and better the appearance of my skin overall. I am 27 years old and I like to take good care of my skin. He was extremely kind and informative. As the treatment went on he let me know everything to expect through out... READ MORE

I had the Smartskin CO2 (fractional) laser performed under my eyes 13 days ago. My eyes are still pinkish, but not bad. I can see some overall tightening and smoothness. Paid $1500. Pain wasn't too bad. Eyes swelled up badly for 3 days. I ahd it done on a mdeium setting and had about 9 days of... READ MORE

I'm in my mid 40's, have fair skin, love the outdoors, and have a history of mild acne. I went to Dr. Gilman hoping to minimize fine lines, acne scarring, sun spots, and overall tone of skin. During my consultation, she spent time explaining how and why my skin and face had changed over... READ MORE

Just completed my 2nd lazer treatment, this is my 5th day of recovery, will return to work on day 6. Skin looks beautiful. Just a little red, will wear makeup Monday. Healing process is an intense 3-5 days. My motivation is to keep my skin healthy looking. Overall happy with results. Many... READ MORE

This is not for dark or olive skinned people. It has left me with a big scar which is tough to fade away. Now I have to cover up with a concealer. My skin used to be better before. Also, the pain that you go through after having this procedure is not worth. Would not recommend this to anyone. I... READ MORE

I did the Fractional Co2 to help the appearance of my skin from acne & scarring. Dr. Saluja was very informative and honest with me regarding the procedure and that I may not look " that great" the first few days. I was given pre-procedure and post procedure written instructions at my... READ MORE

I had my lower face treated with the Palomar Lux 2940 fractional laser. This is the heavy duty ablative laser not the 1540. It wasn't too painful as my doctor completely numbed my face with injections, but my face was like chopped liver for a week - very burnt with crusting and weeping. I... READ MORE

I had a fractionated co2 laser treatment in mid-November 2011 on my cheeks, eye area & chin/jaw (everywhere on my face but my nose & forehead). I am 44 years old. I was hoping to get rid of some fine lines & sun damage and basically help my skin look younger. I bought this treatment... READ MORE

I have had 2 laser treatments prior at a laser therapy company, before contacting a plastic surgeon. The surgeons office did a full face limelight treatment first with absolutely no change. It was decided that I should go the cutera fractional laser route. At great expense and time, I did... READ MORE

For years I've had deep wrinkles around my eyes and mouth due to sun damage and genetics. The doctor informed me about a procedure called Fractional CO2 that smooths and resurfaces the skin. He warned me that the downtime is 7-10 days. I've never had anything aggressive done to my skin... READ MORE

I did the laser procedure, to look as healthy and refreshed as possible. I'm Jennifer and work for Dr. Richard Castellano.  I have seen the dramatic results in patients that have had laser procedures, so decided I would like to enjoy those same results. I had the laser... READ MORE

I have had multiple lasers done in my 40 years because of acne scarring over my face, but most aggravating over my upper lip where I have a plethora of tiny, deep, ice-pick scars. My first laser was in my mid 20s (prior to fractional lasers) -- a full-face ablative CO2 procedure. It turned... READ MORE
