Worth It

I've had a brown "mask" on my cheeks since pregnancy - the Fraxel laser removed it completely and Dr. Nichols was able to counsel me how best to maintain the results. While she said I might need 2 treatments - it's been 4 months and it still looks very good! However, it is important to... READ MORE

I am fairly young looking, but outside quite a bit so wanted to improve my skin tone, texture, minimize fine wrinkles etc. I had Fraxel yesterday at 2PM in a plastic surgeon's office (she also does my botox). It was more painful than I thought it was going to be and I was very red and puffy... READ MORE

I am a 41 year old Asian female. I have always had good skin and complexion. Over the years and after two pregnancies coupled with being on synthetic thyroid hormones, I have developed some light melasma on my cheeks. These darker marks could easily be covered when I wear makeup so I never... READ MORE

I had 2 Fraxel restore sessions at Changes Plastic Surgery in San Diego. I had some acne scarring. I would gladly trade my old skin for what I have now. Very shortly after the second treatment, I started noticing hyper-pigmentation that I never had before. As the months have progressed, my skin... READ MORE

I had Fraxel restore to help Melasma. I was repeatedly assured that it would be safe to use on my skin tone. I am hispanic with light olive complexion. It has now been four full months and I am still dealing with sever hyperpigmentation. There is a clear demarcation line on my upper cheeks... READ MORE

I had my first of 3 sessions for Fraxel Restore on 21 May 2013. I am a 33yr old Caucasian male from Ireland. Since 2010 tanning attempts my forehead became covered in wrinkles, fine lines and pores. It has definitely made an improvement in the wrinkles. I don't have deep wrinkles there any... READ MORE

I had been looking for a procedure to deal with the really annoying fine lines protruding from my mouth, and the "crepy" look on my neck. Dr. Gidon (Toronto) recommended Fraxel for both areas, and I couldn't be happier. I noticed a difference (minimized fine lines) that I hadn't expected, and I... READ MORE

I looked young for a 30 y/o. Most people thought I was 25. After only one fraxel treatment my skin and face look 15-20 years older. Motivation for this was minor acne scarring. I had beautiful SMOOTH and TIGHT skin but just wanted to even out the shallow mild acne scars. Instead I have... READ MORE

I had an erbium laser done under my eyes and it worked fairly well but my bumps returned quickly (had that done twice) and I was told that the fractional C02 laser was the best treatment for this skin problem, so I went to a nearby place that offered it. They did my whole face, which honestly I... READ MORE

I decided to undergo Fraxel purely for acne scaring from high school and college under the encouragement of my dermatologist. The scaring was not that visible but it made me self conscious. I underwent 5 treatments and I regret it. I used to always get told I looked like I was in my 20's, not... READ MORE

Had Fraxel Restore on my face, neck and chest this evening. It was painful, even with the numbing cream, ice, Xanax and Percocet. She went over it with 2 passes of one wavelength and 6 passes with another. Apparently I have a low pain tolerance. I currently look and feel like I have a sunburn... READ MORE

I had a series of treatments for the white/silvery stretchmarks on my upper arms I got during puberty. I was excited to finally have the time and money to treat them. The procedure was incredibly painful, it felt like my skin was getting injected with fire, but I toughed it out with the hope... READ MORE

Hello, I tried Fraxel for 4 treatments on my stetch marks on stomach area and it did not work. My stomach did feel smoother but that was it. Nothing dramatic enough that made the 2k that I spent worth it. I guess its not for everyone. My stomach was red for a few days and looks like it was... READ MORE

I went to Southeastern Dermatology for help with my melasma. Melasma is a very embarrassing problem. When I went for help Dr. Doppelt and his aesthetician, Mary, made me feel very comfortable. After a consultation, we all agreed on Fraxel. After five treatments, the discoloration around my... READ MORE

I have been dealing with melasma for many years. I have spent a ton of money on creams and lotions to lighten my skin only to get minimal results at best. I read about fraxel in New Beauty magazine and decided to give it a try. I couldn't be happier. The procedure itself was a little... READ MORE

Sat Sept 7/13 My doctor and his assistant talked me out of the fractional CO2 that I originally wanted. They explained that this was a better route to take as there are fewer risks/complications etc. What changed my mind was the consultant said she'd had both ablative and non ablative peels. ...

For several years, I had been dealing with severe melisma. I was very excited to learn that Richmond Dermatology and Laser Center in Richmond, Virginia offered the new Fraxel Dual. In September 2011, I had my first treatment with only the "dual" portion of the laser. My skin looked great - for... READ MORE
