I feel I have to leave a review, because I live in Brazil, I looked my doctor on the site (Fraxel's) and after making my first appointment, I found this site, and went into serious doubts...For some reason, and after many many questions, I decided to go ahead. I cannot tell yet about results... READ MORE

Treatment has many benefits, but was very painful. My reason was to rid myself of the sun damage spots on my face, described as melasma by my doctor, which were continuing to get worse every year. I use SPF 60 daily, but am very active outside year round. If it works, it was worth it,... READ MORE

I am happy with the IPL laser. It is really taking away my dark spots and freckles on my face. I will not however take away my melasma which is why I also am using the Triluma cream. I recently had IPL and am now using Triluma cream for the treatment of Melasma. Can I continue to take my... READ MORE

I had 3 fraxel treatments a year ago to treat moderate/severe melasma. The inital results were very good and I was very happy, almost all of the melasma was gone. But here it is a year later and the melasma is back and actually looks worse. I use sunscreen and stay out of the sun as directed... READ MORE

After a single layer TCA peel for melasma/hyperpigmentation, my skin looked great for only a few weeks, while I was still healing. After 12 weeks, I see only a minor improvement in my melasma, with some lightening of the darker spots. 90% of the hyperpigmentation has returned, only slightly... READ MORE

I had the Obagi Blue Peel in a professional environment for hyperpigmentation from melasma. The procedure made my pigmentation darker and blotchier. Prior to having the Blue Peel, I used the Obagi NuDerm products for 12 weeks and I was just about the the point where I thought about not getting... READ MORE

I just finished my 3rd (out of 4 scheduled) Fraxel Re:store a couple days ago. Definitely more swollen this time around than after the first two treatments. Redness, pain about the same. My primary goal is to get rid of melasma and anything else it will help with (brown spots from sun/acne,... READ MORE

With the Fraxel laser treatments, the Doc also used IPL so it was a double treatment for Melasma.  I had two rather large brown spots on my face (one looked like a Hitler mustache!), and wanted some tightening of the skin as well.  After treatment (which does sting), I had redness and... READ MORE

I had 4 treatments of IPL over the course of several months for melasma. I think there are some minor improvements, but not enough to make me happy. You need to consider if you have dermal or epidermal melasma (woods lamp test) as I think in some spots it made it worse. I did not know there was... READ MORE

I had 2 IPL treatments om my face for melasma. Months following the 2nd treatment I got white polka-dots all over my face. They are clustered on the rt side of my forehead and below both cheeks. They have not gotten any better after 1 year. I have used Tri- Luma, chemical peels every 3 weeks and... READ MORE

I decided to do a series of Fraxel treatments about a year ago, and just had my fourth one today. I wanted to post because I feel the root cause of many negative reviews is going to a sub-par doctor or clinic that doesn't manage the risks as easily and exhaustively as they can be managed...

I decided to get Fraxel after giving up on all sorts of lightening creams and products that are meant to treat melasma pigmentation. After I finished nursing, I went to the dermatologist who introduced the idea of using Fraxel. It was the first time I had heard about it, so I said I would... READ MORE

I have suffered with melasma above my lip for over a year now. I have tried every cream I could find and my dermatologist told me that there was no cure for it. I was SO excited when I found Fraxel on the internet! I had my first treatment 3 weeks ago and the pain was horrible. I had tears... READ MORE
