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

Here are some pictures (before and 4th day pictures)   Hello everybody! Today is very important day for me.Because I had 1 treatment of 4 or 5  fraxel restore treatment. It was very hard decision for me .The rewievs were very different each other, and this was... 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

WHY I DID IT: fine lines, smile wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars around chin area WHERE I DID IT: i went to a {edited - provider info is shown above the review for registered users}, San Diego, CA because it had the best deal for one treatment. 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

I researched Fraxel for over a year & got as much info as I could. I saw this Dr. on a news program talking about Fraxel so I made an appt. I didn't get to see him but the tech sounded knowledgeable. Another tech did the procedure tho. The first treatment was so excruciatingly... READ MORE

In all my reading i have not found any photos that show you the "real healing" that must take place.i had bruising swelling redness that lasted seven days i am still hoping that what i am seeing nowthe result of some swelling and will subside.i'm still praying the result will be... READ MORE

Had one procedure and not sure yet if its worth it yet but my pores are smaller and the swelling has subsided... That said, here is the progression so far. I had the procedure done in Rancho Bernardo ($600) The procedure was administered by a nurse. Procedure was Thursday morning and felt like... READ MORE

I cant believe the dramatic results from this procedure, my wife is a laser technician, so I get ALOT of services done for free. I used this for my stretch marks, burn scar, facial wrinkles, and sun damage. I can honestly say that EVERY problem I had was taken care of. After the first treatment... READ MORE

I just finished my 5th and final Fraxel laser treatment last Friday. I am 58 years old with acne scarring consisting of pits on my lower cheeks. I also have lines above my lips. The treatments were fairly painful, but not bad with a Valium. My face was very red for about a week, then a lot of... READ MORE

I'll admit it hurts and don't like the swelling after, BUT my results have been wonderful. I decided to get fraxel to get rid of my brown spots. Not only are some completely gone, many are still fading. ALSO, the reduction of my fine lines and wrinkles are amazing. AND, that's only after two... READ MORE

I did fraxel restore two months ago for scarring. I now have tiny Micro holes all over my face. I went back for a follow up I show her my concern and we went over our pictures She told me she couldn't see them in person or pics. Clearly she was lying because the laser tracks are all oover my...

I'm not sure my exact start date, what I do know is that I have had 13 laser tattoo removal sessions within several years. But you also need to know my tattoo has three tattoos on each other and is in an area where it swells sometimes some my clothing choices are limited which usually alters... READ MORE

When I go in for fraxel, I go in for a portion of my face. $150 is the cost for treating a cheek from my smile line to my outer cheekbone and my cheekbone down to my jaw. I have had my cheeks treated 3 times each. I've had 150$ worth of my forehead, including between my eyes, once. And a $150... READ MORE
