As a teenager I never took good care of my acne-prone skin, so I was stuck with bad scars even in my 30s. After a consultation with Dr. Fox, it was decided that Fraxel would be best to reduce my scars.

Thus far, three months have passed since I have done the latest Fraxel -- Fraxel Re:Pair. I have seen little to no improvement in acne scars, wrinkles and tightening. I have been told that it can take three to six months to see improvement, but I really doubt it at this time.

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
