Not Worth It

The procedure was fine, little discomfort but not bad. Took a week off of work and didn't leave the house for 4 days. Under the eyes took the most time to heal. The main reason I did fraxel repair was to remove/lighten the sun spots and it didn't work. I now use Retin A 10% and Retin A 5%, works... READ MORE

Definitely worth it. Cannot believe you are 90% healed in a week when I looked so scary 2days after. Dr. Liu was honest in explanations of what to expect after and made sure she answered all question. I look and feel 10 years younger. You know it worked when your 18 year old tells you you look a...

Had Fraxel Repair done 11/12/11 and I am doing okay. :-) Grateful the procedure went well and the week is over. I am 40 years old with a mix of ice pick, box and rolling scars. Been on Accutane twice. Accutane saved me. I was very lucky I did not experience any side effects. Last time on... READ MORE

I went to a plastic surgeon in dallas who promotes fraxel repair on the Internet. I had general anesthetic. Recovery was generally as described by others except I had an allergic reaction to the topicals. two weeks downtime. The doctor warned me that with my fragile saggy skin at 62 I would want...

I am day 4 and in the worst pain. I had my face, neck and chest done. Day 1 was ok. Apparently, the script that I got for valtrex was for the generic and not the original. I started to get red and redder, and now I am red/purple day 4. I have run a fever since day 1. I actually got sick day 2... READ MORE

If you are going to try fraxel, research, and make sure a dermatologist is the one doing it. Go to a reputable dr. With lots of credentials. I had a setting of 8 or 10 and 5 passes. After about a year, my face crashed. I had noticed deep red track marks around my mouth. It looks like lines all... READ MORE

About 2 years ago I went to Dr. F, looking for treatment to get rid of freckles, sun spots, pigmentation and overall skin tone and texture. He suggested a Mini Fraxel Repair, at low settings, everything went smooth, my skin improved 90% and still is looking great!! I would do it again in a... READ MORE

My husband and I had the best week! We went in together and had our face treated with CO2 and Fraxel on our neck. Of course we were swollen and frightening for the first week, but it was fun. We were given Demerol, but not put out so the shots in my face were pretty uncomfortable. I didn't... READ MORE

I simply had no other option. I have been a celebrity stylist for 35 years- I have never worn makeup- I don't consider myself vain-2 years ago it started-I became 'Invisible" I looked like an old lady. I am not a very trusting person either; so I was at the very least sceptical... READ MORE

I am almost 3 weeks post my 2nd Fraxel Repair.  Both were done at 70mj-60%.  I have encountered no problems and quick healing times.  I am doing this for acne scars and aging, and the results have been better than for Dermabrasion and CO2.It is too early to tell, but I may go for... READ MORE

I am an avocate for staying young. A little bit now hopefully will pay off in the future as to how i age. I had botox sculptra and fraxel repair. The fraxel took much longer to recover from than was explained during the consultation. I am not unhappy with the results but am finding that without... READ MORE

I am in my late forties and had full-face Fraxel Repair for general skin rejuvenation. The procedure was quite painful despite a topical anaesthetic and sedative (I was crying). I still look as if my face has been in a deep-fat fryer. The main problem is that the clinic's view of... READ MORE

I had Fraxel Repair at age 51 in April of 2010. I had IV sedation for the procedure so I did not have any pain. I remember being in some pain when I woke up but that subsided. The recovery was difficult for me. I followed my doctor's instructions and set an alarm clock to go off every hour... READ MORE

I am a fair-skinned 39 years old, and have suffered moderate generalized rosacea for most of my adult life, and in the last 10 years developed the occasional small vein in my cheek or nose.

I am hispanic with tan skin. I am one month post fraxel repair and the treated area is still very red, with hyperpigmented spots (brown spots) and laser track marks. Please-in specific detail-tell me what to do for this! This is not the "walk in the park" that I was told it would... READ MORE

I did this for subtle acne scars and even more subtle pigmentation. I now live with problems one thousand times worse than what I had before the laser and sadly, thin skin and scars are permanent. This laser has aged me ten yrs. I was perfectly healthy and now have been diagnosed with 3 physical... READ MORE

Its expensive here! but so far so good. Pros: i am darker skinned, and feared the laser. but have had excellent experiences so far with the outcomes.

Okay Im on day four if you count the procedure the first day. My Dr. made this surgery sound like a breeze..needless to say it's pretty close to giving birth but just on the other end of the body. Day one vinegar rinses and vasaline, same thing on day two, day three brown skin coming off... READ MORE
