Hi there. I just had my second Fraxel Restore treatment 2 days ago. After the first treatment 6 weeks ago, I was given Neova Tissue Repair Copper Peptide cream which I gooped on for 3 days or so.

Hello, I tried Fraxel for 4 treatments on my stetch marks on stomach area and it did not work. My stomach did feel smoother but that was it.

My first treatment was in Dec and it's now Feb and... more
