I'm 4 weeks past Fraxel Repair and I can still see micro dots and laser "tracks" on my face. Will this go away? What can I do to fix it? My makeup sinks into these spots/tracks and looks terrible!

Yep they will tell you they cant see them or in my case its ageing. Funny that they werent there before. Yes I am currently in proceedings with my Lawyer to try and be reimbursed thousands of dollars spent trying to fix this mess. Worst decision of my life to have Laser.

They won't go away I'm 2 years out and my neck and chest they are still visible. I've tried everything, growth factors, retin a, vitamin c, niacinamide, etc you name it. Pissed off

There is a doc on this site who said that oily skin can prevent micro holes from closing because of the oil seeping in to them. That might be why mine never closed either and I am about 14months post treatment

Can you get laser tracks from Fraxel re:store? After my treatment, I have holes that form lines all over my face.

I just got my 1st fraxel treatment done on Oct.19th. I have little tiny micro-dot bronze color spots on my face... Is this the burnt skin that falls off? I'm on my 3rd day and I started taking a steamed shower and a warm face cloth and gently wiping them away. But since my skin is still very sensitive I am doing it very gently. Should I not be doing this? My skin sort of feels like a sand paper... anybody else get this way ?

Hi Dr. Persky - my doc now thinks this is a microscarring that can sometimes occur with fraxel. My skin texture just isn't the same as it was before the procedure and now I'm 4 months out. Any suggestions to help?

Hi Anon, Speak with your treating physician. The dots and tracks will eventually go away. In a minority of patients it does sometimes take a few months. You can have O2 Intraceuticals facials to help hydrate your skin, use SkinMedica's TNS Essential Serum (growth factors), and even have a Fraxel repair Lite treatment (at very low settings, 5 mj, 10 to 20% coverage). Good luck and be well. Dr. P
