The procedure was fine, little discomfort but not bad. Took a week off of work and didn't leave the house for 4 days. Under the eyes took the most time to heal.

I had blotchy brown patches "the mask of pregnancy" on my face due to fluctuating hormone levels. The dermatologist recommended Fraxel.
I was told that I would feel like a rubber band was being snapped on my face. I have a high pain threshold but this had to be the most painful procedure I had ever had. I just about flew off the table. Clenching my teeth and cursing under my... more
