Dr. Mark Gaughan's staff advised that Fraxel is good for skin. 3rd procedure the tech turned up the power. She burned huge gouges in my skin that have since radiated out, severely compromising the integrity of my skin. There are numerous gouges and lines that were not present prior to the procedure.

I am a 27 year old Caucasian female with light olive toned skin. I have mild to moderate acne scars on my cheeks and chin. Most are just rolling and box scars. I just recently had my first treatment with the fraxel 1540 xd hand piece this past Friday. Before the procedure, I got injected with... READ MORE

So about 5 weeks ago I went in to a local dermatologist to consult about some moles I had on my face. I wasn't sure I wanted anything done but she said she thought it best to remove them anyway and the scarring would be minimal....Turns out, she was wrong. The scarring wasnt horrible but it was...

I'm an Indian woman with pretty significant acne scarring all over my face (worst on my cheeks, forehead, and temples). I have had a couple of subcisions in the past and tried Restylane with some mild improvement but still have a long way to go. I'd been reading Fraxel Restore reviews... READ MORE

I am 30 , VERY fair & had chicken pox scars on my forehead since I was 8.They're deep & putting on moisturizer/foundation, it often gets 'caught' in the dimples of my forehead. In certain lighting, the upper rim of the scar casts shadows! I have had 3 treatments of 6, & the scars... READ MORE

I want to start off by saying that I wasn't planning on writing a review. This morning I was looking at my skin and remembering back to prior the procedure. I remember how nervous I was with this decision because I had read a lot of bad reviews. I want to write a positive review based on my... READ MORE

I wasn't expecting an outcome this amazing just by doing a laser treatment. I had 5 sessions of treatment done with the help of Fraxel laser, did it to regain the appearance of my skin which in the last few years got really unhealthy looking due to sun damage. The procedure hurts a bit, but it's... READ MORE

I paid $4,800 in 2007 for 5 treaments of Fraxel Restore. There was no noticeable difference whatsoever in pigment, fine lines etc. It hurt only a bit, you look slightly sunburned and are pretty much fine within a day or two. The Dr. who performed the procedure agreed that there was no change so... READ MORE

I 20 years old and have had my acne scars for about 5-6 years. I bought a package of 5 treatments. They were having a half off deal for the month of april so it ended up being 2500 for all 5. Yesterday was my first treatment. They put a numbing cream and left it for about 25-30. They then wiped... READ MORE

I had my final fraxel (5th treatment) and feel great, refreshed looking and the results are positive. The improvements seem to be continuous as promised and the last treatment seemed to show the most improvement. Patience is what is needed and my skin has never really looked better (not in...

In may 2013 it will be a year since my second fraxel treatment. My face is still extremely sensitive to the sun even after reapplying sunblock for the third or fourth time and after wearing a cap whenever i see there is a bit of sun out. I also noticed hyper pigmentation developing on my upper... READ MORE

Had Fraxel for about one dozen brown spots on my arms. I had burning for 5 days. Even after 1 year scars appearing still. When I went back with red welts and burning told me it was normal. Went showing damage after two weeks and told me that was normal and it would get better. It didn't... READ MORE

Hello: I've had a disastrous experience after a single Fraxel restore treatment. For those contemplating Fraxel, beware! Stick to what works, good skin hygiene, sunscreen, retin-A, etc. My experience has caused a full-blown anxiety disorder: yes--it's been that bad. I've gone on benzos,... READ MORE

The individuals at Haley Dermatology, as well as Dr. Haley were warm, kind, & professional throughout my entire experience. Shirley met with me twice & gave me her cell phone number in case I had any questions or concerns over the weekend before my treatment. After reading some... READ MORE

I had my first Fraxel treatment yesterday. The settings were 35/8. The pain was not too bad. It started at about a 1-2 but after a couple of passes moved up to a 3-4. It feels like little needles prickling your face, or if you have ever experienced a severe ice storm with wind pelting your face,... READ MORE

Hello All, Yesterday was the first time I did the restore for acne scaring. The spa that i went to was amazing and everyone there is amazing as well. They have free consultations and will help you make the best decision for your condition. I got numbed for about an hour and than the procedure... READ MORE

Luckily, most of us women don't know beforehand about all the issues we may encounter after being pregnant - sagging bellies and breasts, melasma from hormonal changes, wrinkles from sleep deprivation, lack of sex, etc. - there would probably be less children out there, if we knew...

I am 53 years old. I went to Dr. Vinyard to see what could be done to improve my skintone, small wrinkles, and large pores. I have had 3 treatments spaced 1 month apart. Will be getting my 4th and final treatment next month. This has been a big confidence boost for me. My skin looks and feels... READ MORE

First I NEVER write reviews. My goal was to get a smoother complexion and wear less makeup, the end result...I'm using more makeup to cover my face then ever before. I have dry splotches on my face from the laser treatment that will not go away. Your skin is suppose to get better over time. My... READ MORE
