I had severe acne, and I was 'sold' fraxel laser treatments to help.. but my life is so much worse 8 years later... is laser treatment just for 'healthy skin that is aged?'
After 3 Fraxel Laser Treatments My Skin is Hard and Hurts.. Is That Normal?

The original Fraxel laser uses an Erbium laser to resurface the skin. It is not very effective at tightening the skin and is therefore used less commonly today. Treatments are extremely safe in experienced hands with few complications.
