Listen for these two categories of lasers: ablative (ones that remove thin layers of skin) and nonablative (those that tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth). LEARN MORE ›

Pros-Limited downtime, not much post operative care requiredCons-Painful, minimal results, expensiveI had it to improve acne scarring on cheeks, and some light hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. READ MORE

I am inexperienced in this field and trusted the "recommendations" of the dr. Had this treatment based on the consultation and recommendation of the dr. with zero-zero-zero results after 3 sessions.Was told that fillers would not be effective. Many other people that I know and that I... READ MORE

Pros: (TBA) Cons: Extremely painful - causing uncontrollable shakes, crying, heart rate, lose of breath or ability to talk, pain strikes your face but sharply travels around your skull and down your spine. Why: microdermabrasion, chem peel, and trinity wasn't very effective and staff... READ MORE

I had co2 laser resufacing under my eyes only three weeks ago because the skin under my eyes was loose (I'm 55) and it looked so wrinkled under there when I smiled. My skin under my eyes has been pretty darn red for most of the three weeks, but it's getting a little bit better. Now... READ MORE

I had a Matrix RF treatment done three weeks ago and so far my skin has broken out and become very rough around the nose, chin, and forehead area. I had the treatment done for light acne scarring and red marks (redness of scars).I did an 18% at home TCA peel about a month before the laser... READ MORE

I was treated with CO2 fractional laser for acne scar on my whole face four weeks ago, now it is still pretty red and I feel hopeless because it seems like my skin is getting worse.Is there any possibility that my skin can turn back to normal color........ READ MORE

I had an eyebrow lift and my face lasered. My skin was tightened, a few years peeled off. But my forehead developed uneven pigmentation. No, it didn't go away. It is red, and white like a rash. It is not visible unless you are close. For a few months after this procedure, I could feel the... READ MORE

I had 3 FX Fraxel treatments and 1 CO2 laser treatment for cystic acne scarring on my cheeks and chin. No improvement. I still have scars, actually more noticable. In the past I've had 1 chemical peel, 1 acid peel, 1 microdermabrassion, 2 dermabrassions. But I still have very visible scarring.... READ MORE

Had co2 for eye bag. Since procedure 6 months ago, I have had hyperpigmentation and swelling and wrinkles appear worse. Also veins have become more prominent. READ MORE

The experience I've had with lasers in the past has been good. I am just worried that because of accutane it may be different now.I had taken accutane for a period of three weeks and discontinued the use because of severity of it. I have been off of it for three weeks. I have a scar above my lip... READ MORE

I am so glad to have found this forum...Wish I would have found it prior to my DOT laser treatment to have a bit more realistic idea of what to expect.  I want to record my experience here for the benefit of anyone looking into it. My main goal in having this done was to treat the smoker's... READ MORE

The Mosaic Laser is a fairly new treatment out. I wanted it to get rid of any pigmentation, fine lines and general skin rejuvernation. A numbing cream is applied an hour before treatment,the laser itself feels warm and also have a fan on the face so it is not uncomfortable. My skin has felt... READ MORE

It was expensive and I had to wrap my face in celaphane for a day.  I was back out in three days and I looked great with younger skin. READ MORE

Today is Wednesday, 11/26/08. I had the SmartXide Dot treatment on Monday, 11/24/08. I'm 55 years old, with some acne scarring, uneven coloring, patches of large pores, some small broken capillaries around my nose. I would love to see my coloring evened out & the scarring diminished. My... READ MORE

Hello, I had Fraxel Re-Pair done and my face and Active FX under my eyes exactly 2 weeks ago. So far, I am not impressed.  I still have all the fine lines under my eyes that I really wanted to get rid of.  That's why I even did the procedure. My doc says it takes 4 months for the... READ MORE

I tried CO2 lasar resurfacing at age 58 to help w/texture and underlying collagen rebuilding. I was useless for a week afterwards, needing to put vaseline on my face constantly. I was terribly swollen for a couple of weeks. the red then pink color lasted over one month. Now it is 7 months... READ MORE

Two weeks ago, I underwent a fractional laser procedure on the top half of my face (from the mid-cheek up, around the eyes, and across the forehead to the hairline) using the Palomar Lux 2490 system.   I had expressed an interest in... READ MORE

Although I did not feel a thing during the full face laser, the recovery over a 2 week period was painful. I was house bound for 7 days, and the ozing and crusting were severe. Since I don't tolerate pain meds well, I just had to tough it out. The Dr. and his staff were terrific and supportive,... READ MORE

Many people, including nurses, secretaries, etc. use the word "Fraxel" to describe a fractional laser--and they will tell you their clinic gives Fraxel treatments. But in my case, the actual laser system was manufactured by Palomar, and simply did NOTHING. Their own brochures state... READ MORE
