What mj level Fraxel makes pain extensive? On my second Fraxel treatment the pain was almost unbearable even with numbing cream and cold air pressure. The first was fully manageable. My doctor claims session 1 was at 8 mj and session 2 was treated at 10 mj, density 8 with 8 passes. I find this hard to believe and think the setting was much higher. Judging from your patient experience with Fraxel, what level in average becomes difficult for patients to manage?
