I had 3 Fraxel Restores with the last being on May 10th. My 2nd treatment, I broke out with a handful of cysts which I was told was normal. After my 3rd treatment, I broke out with another handful plus the others seemed to pop back up. My derm put me on doxycycline; thankfully I have no new cysts and the others have resolved. Along with the PIH from the cysts, moderate hyperpigmentation, I have an overall bronzing which clearly ends at the jaw. I just started Nu Derm. Am I on the right path?

The bronzing after Fraxel is temporary for the majority of cases. Be patient and use a good moisutrizing cream and sunscreens.
