I am 2 months post 1 Treatment of Fraxel Restore and my skin texture is looking worse than it ever has in my entire life. I wanted to get the treatment for large pores on my cheeks and a few tiny acne scars but ended up with pores that are even larger, connecting lines (kind of like little slits across my face), skin inflammation, weird raised bumps and skin that gets shiny about an hour... more
I have been using Skinfo Products for years. Usually I have them delivered but now that there's a location in Glencoe, I can walk over! My daughter-in-law also orders from Skinfo via me as she lives in London, England, and cannot order overseas on-line.

I had a number of complications that were not directly addressed well by her office in the days that followed. Three months later I developed hyperpigmentation on my... more
I undertook fraxel to address mild/moderate discoloration and texture issues with my middle aged skin. The procedure itself went as described by all the literature I read and the pre-procedure discussion I had with my clinician (I had the procedure at an MD's office). The clinician asked me casually when I was checking out if I was susceptible to cold sores, and I told her I hadn't had any... more
I went through a series of fraxel treatments 2 years ago at a laser clinic in Highland Park IL. I wanted to do something about acne scarring and discoloration on my face.
I paid for the series upfront but never finished the last treatment. They got progressively more painful and I ended up with cold sores on my cheeks. The technician wanted to continue anyway, and when the doctor saw me... more
