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

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 and they recommened a series of 3 treatments... 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 asked about Fraxel/rosacea on this site & 2 doctors replied that Fraxel is not the right treatment for redness and/or rosacea. I live in a remote little town so not a lot of choices closeby for beauty treatments. I decided to have a series of 4 Fraxel treatments, for wrinkles, enlarged pores,... READ MORE

$1500 = 3 treatments at $500 a visit. Full face. Fraxel: Restore at 35 power or whatever they call it. 8 Passes. For mild acne scarring/deep pores. OKAY. So the first thing I'm going to write is all I cared about when I was first looking at reviews: I'm a VERY *white* female, 29 years old.... READ MORE

This Fraxel in Bellair toronto makes my skin worse I really hate my only concern is to remove the red acne bump and blackheads due to clogged pores of cold weather when I visited their clinic the nurse point right away fraxel which I am innocent for that procedure now I'm suffering from...

There was so much down time and discomfort -- more so from the silcone pieces placed over the lasered area that pinched at seams than the actual procedure. I'm 52 and had acne scars and large pores. Did see improvement in pore size and some improvement in overall texture. A year later,... READ MORE

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sikorski’s for over eight years. After having “test driven" at least five other dermatologists in Southern California, including one in Beverly Hills, Dr. Sikorski is the only dermatologist for me from now on for two reasons: Dr. Sikorski is one of the few MD...

I had a fraxel restore treatment one week ago. After reading about the experiences of others and the ratings, I was very apprehensive. But after a week, I am totally thrilled and delighted with the results, and am considering one more treatment although I don't think I need one. I'll decide in a... READ MORE

Had fraxel restore done 3 times above my upper lip. Last one 3 months ago. Big mistake. Now my skin is wrinkled and blotchy with dark spots developing. I saw the doctor 9 weeks after and he basically told me to go live my life and don't become obsessed by it. Easy for him to say. This has ruined... READ MORE

The dr persuaded me to go ahead and do trm lazer, and what i understood its like fraxel. Can anyone clarify for me what the difference is? And can i get this done in the states?Steps... READ MORE

I had 4 sessions with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. I asked what procedure would work best for me other than face lift and was told definately the fraxel. NO change whatsoever after 5 months. Dr couldn't believe there was absolutely no change. Disappointed beyond belief. I don't have... READ MORE
