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 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
