Pros: Skin improvements Cons:none Advice:book your appointment on a Wednesday so you have all weekend to recover from peeling. READ MORE

The scar I set out to finally "address" is eleven years old. It is a result of an auto collision with a drunk driver I have never had the privilege of meeting till date. That was in May 2000. I literarily lost a chunk of flesh in the entire upper arm, the bones and the ball and socket... READ MORE

I have skin graft scars from over 30 yrs ago. Flat, skin color mostly. I have an area on one of the scars, (I had this done on four scars 3 different parts of my body) that I had a laser treatment done about 15 yrs ago when it resurfaced the top layer like a third degree burn that ended up...

I am 35 yrs old, with fair skin, freckles and strawberry blond hair (German/Irish background). I decided to get the Fraxel Re:store to help with crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes, and crepey skin/laxity under the eyes. I chose the Fraxel Re:store for the minimal downtime vs the Re:pair... READ MORE

I am into m fourth day of recovery. My face is still swollen, brown and red. I just started skin shedding yesterday. I had both my entire Face and neck treated. I was given general anesthesia for the procedure which lasted well over an hour. Most of my pain occurred on the first day. My skin... READ MORE

After YEARS of battling acne and even being on Accutane twice back in my 20's, I finally got it under control at the age of 34. The only thing left was to get rid of the scarring I have, which are really only on my cheeks. After my first treatment I broke out HORRIBLY. All over my face...... READ MORE

I am now 15 months post 2 Fraxel Restore sessions and must say that this was the WORST decision of my life. I am a 29 Y.O. male that had 3 MINOR acne scars on my right cheek. I was talked into doing my whole face in order to ensure an even tone and texture. The texture I got is the... READ MORE

I had a cyst surgically removed and it left me with an inch scar down the middle of my forehead. I did 5 treatments of fraxel laser on my forehead about 1 or 2 months between each treatment. It was a complete waste of money. I'm an adult, female Chinese woman with oily skin and tans... READ MORE

I "thought" I had really did my homework on this before having it done. I saw all the amazing before and after pictures on this site and thought this would help with some fine lines on my face. I had 2 treatments done. It hurts really bad but I thought, no pain no gain. Well my skin... READ MORE

I had 3 re:stores done in April, May and June of 2010. The last treatment was at the highest setting 70 mj at level 8. The derm's PA did the treatment. She has being doing Fraxels for 5 years. The 1st was in normal settings at 40 mj at level 8 (no problems and great results) and the second... READ MORE

Well, I had fraxel in March 2010. Initially when they put the numbing cream on my face I broke out in a huge hive. I was told that this had never happened to a patient before. My face was extremely red and swollen so I was given a shot of benadryl and they took the cream off of my face and used... READ MORE

I asked the derm what I could do about minor acne scarring. The first thing out of her mouth was Fraxel. I hadn't heard of Fraxel and at the time (January 8, 2010), there weren't many bad reviews out yet. So I trusted the doctor and went ahead with the derm's recommendation... READ MORE

I am so excited with the results of the Fraxel. I had this procedure in conjunction with fillers and it has transformed my face! I look a decade younger and my skin is so smooth. It does hurt but it is pain that is bearable and is quickly forgotten. The after is no more pain than being hot... READ MORE

A board certified plastic surgeon scarred my face over 10 years ago and I had it recently (Jan 2010 & July 2010) lasered in an attempt to improve the appearance. It was lasered 2x by a Dermatologist using the Active Fx laser - it is now worse than it was before. Worse b/c it is now more... READ MORE

I had the Fraxel Dual and Alexandrite laser about a week ago and look great. I had mild melasma on my upper lip, small patches around the eyes and dozens of scattered brown spots. It's all gone and smooth and I love my result. I only treated specific areas and not the full face but I'm... READ MORE

See my post of the recent study from Dec 2008 I had this procedure 2 years ago at a plastic surgeons office who I’ve seen for 9 years for botox resty….I would not recommend it to my worst enemy… It seems you may have improvement at first but it causes DNA damage to the... READ MORE

I have been battling melasma, which I think is epidermal as it responds well to treatment, for 1.5 years now. It was brought on by taking Yasmin birth control pills, which I was on to clear minor acne. I have it on my forehead, cheeks and upper lip. Wonderful! I am often outside in the sun, and... READ MORE

One treatment is all i can afford for... READ MORE

I went for Fraxel Laser for my acne scars. I had it performed on 02/17/09 and I will post my comments as I continue with the treatment. Because of various negative comments regarding Fraxel, I think it's very important to let others know where I am doing the procedure so if everything works out... READ MORE
