Fraxel and Injectable Fillers

It is certainly possible that the Fraxel Repair can diminish some of the effect of injectable facial fillers.  The laser energy penetrates sufficiently deeply into the skin that the filler might be altered by the laser energy and the heat it produces.  More aggressive settings will have a higher chance of altering the fillers than less powerful ones.  It is definitely something to be discussed with your laser surgeon.
