I had fraxel laser done from 2009-2010 to reduce pigmentation on upper lip, and heal/treat acne. initial treatments were done on whole face, but as it was an expensive process so I focused on upper lip. However I then had to have more areas treated as more pigmentation developed!!! This was... READ MORE

I am having this procedure completed to minimize the appearance of my acne scars. The first procedure went well- not overly painful. I spent an hour sitting with the numbing cream on and then about 45 minutes under the laser. I noticed slight swelling and redness right after so I immediately... READ MORE

About 3-4 years ago I went to my dermatologist asking about ways to reduce my acne scarring. He had referred me to another dermatologist who had experience with laser treatments. In my consultation, he suggested I do Fraxel treatments due to my ethnicity (asian with dark skin). I did not like... READ MORE

I'm 23, and have battled acne throughout my high school and early college years. Now that the breakouts are gone, I've been desperately wanting to try Fraxel for sometime. I've heard mixed to good things, but really thought I'd fair well with the laser. I finally found a laser center in New York... READ MORE

I have been saving for this procedure and I am going Monday to set it up.. I talked to my surgeon about it, when I was getting my botox a couple of months ago. He said you will love it, that the people that's had it done, don't have to wear base makeup anymore. I have wore foundation since I was... READ MORE

Please do not do fraxel especially of you have acne prone or sensitive skin. I am currently at my dermatologists office in tears because my once clear skin has been breaking out like a teenager for the past 11 days. And it's still spreading! Every day there's a few more white head pimples Or... READ MORE

Today I went in for my first fraxel laser treatment at Bellair Laser in Toronto (Yorkville location) and I am very pleased with the results so far. By that I mean, the pain was much more tolerable than I had anticipated, and my skin feels very soft and smooth immediately after. I was really... READ MORE

I'm 60, female, history of oily skin and pimples, not cystic acne. Still have active T-zone: oily, occasional whiteheads, milia, seb. hyperplasia, large pores, mild scarring. Worst area is chin and below mouth corners: bumpy, crepey, lots of tiny wrinkles, scars, large pores, thin skin, easily... READ MORE

I just had a fraxel to treat fine lines around mouth, eyes, and under chin area. I sat with numbing cream for about 45 minutes. The procedure took about 30 minutes. After the treatment my skin felt hot and looked like I had a sunburn.... After a few hours my face cooled down but there is still... READ MORE

I am going in on Friday for a consult for the fraxel restore to treat my cystic acne scarring. My main problem area are my cheek areas. I have ice pick scars. I have tried chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion but am not happy with the results after each procedure. I have finally got my... READ MORE

I first took a full face package of 3 and now a full package of half face + 1 free one. Going good so far and results are good. Looking to improve more though. Full face is VERY painful especially the "2nd wave" . My face was applied with numbing cream for 45 mins before the treatment. Laser... READ MORE

I have many acne scars on my face and I have tried 3 sessions of chemical peeling without visible improvement. I had 5 sessions of dermaroller and after the second session, my pores look smaller so much that my relatives thought that I had laser treatment. Up to that point, I was still scared... READ MORE

I had my first Fraxel Dual laser performed yesterday by my dermatologist. I am 41 years old and have been plagued by acne my whole adult life. I had tried topical creams and antibiotics, but finally was prescribed spironolactin, as it appears that my acne is hormone-related. The spironolactin at... READ MORE

I purchased a Groupon for a Fraxel treatment with the hopes that it might improve my melasma. I have had hyperpigmentation on my face since my mid-20's due to a severe sunburn. It has only gotten worse over the past 15 years due to sun exposure and age. I was a little nervous about having... READ MORE

I had Fraxel done on my entire face, although, I originally only saw the need on my cheeks. As a 40+ year old man, I'm starting to see the effects of sun tanning in my teens and burns when I was a kid. The process started by the technician applying goop that is meant to reduce pain. Turns out... READ MORE
