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

Did this procedure for the marks on my face not really that bad but had a few that bothered me, did the laser treatment, it was a bit uncomfortable on the last pass of the laser buT it was tolerable (HAD THE AIR CONDITIONING ON MY FACE FULL BLAST FOR ALMOST AN HOUR AFTER) They supplied a diary...

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

I has some dark spots in my face that I heate, and my husband make commentaries about it, so ten last year I decided to start with the fraxel. I had been living in Monterrey, Mexico and found an excelent doctor Marcos Fahme and the cost I think is not as expensive as in USA I payed aroun 650. 00... 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

I had the worst possible experience with the Fraxel laser. On the day of the procdure, after waiting almost 2 hours for Dr. Taub, with the anthestic cream wearing off, the procedure was much more painful than they described. I had a number of complications that were not directly addressed well... READ MORE

Hello all, I had a FRAXEL RESTORE DUAL session 7 weeks ago to treat a small surgical scar on the bridge of my nose and a couple of small and not deep acne scars on my chin and lower cheeks area. The doctor told me I might need one or two sessions. I asked him about side effects and... READ MORE

I have a high tolerance for pain but it felt painful during the procedure and 1st day up to the 2nd day. I am on my 6th day now and pretty much the peeling is almost complete. my sideburn areas are still looking bronzed. I decided to have this done to get rid of dark spots, liver spots or... READ MORE

I rarely write reviews but I wanted to share my experience with Fraxel. Going through with this procedure was very nerve racking. I read review after review, terrified by the horror stories. However, after a short burst of cystic acne that left scars all over my cheeks, I was extremely self... READ MORE

I'm 43 and had fraxel done today. I have dark hair and blue eyes, fair complected but can tan in the sun. Unfortunately the woman forgot to tell me that I would need someone to drive me home so no painkiller for me. :(. Anyway I did have the numbing cream on for the full hour prior to the... READ MORE

I received the Fraxel re:pair treatment 2 months ago. I am left with the waxy orange peel texture that other reviewers have mentioned. I have researched all the posts but none mentioned if this can be cured. Does anyone know if this is some permanent damage? I was not warned by the doctor the... READ MORE

I wanted to refresh my skin and remove or lighten the age spots on my face, neck and décolleté. I was also told that it would tighten the skin which was a plus for me but I had a slow peel 16 years ago and so my skin was in fairly good condition. The first two days after were not bad. We...
