Today is day 3 after my Fraxel treatment. The doctor used a level 9 only on my cheek areas and a 5-6 on the rest( she did my entire face and neck areas) as I was very able to tolerate the pain. I look like Alvin the chipmunk. When do you think I should start to see and feel the swelling come down? I see my doctor, who is wonderful, 1 week post op. I am VERY OPTIMISTIC about this as I have suffered from acne and it's scars for so many years I can not remeber my life before them.
What is the Proper Care After my First Fraxel Treatment?

Post-Fraxel Care and Treatment
Fraxel postcare instructions vary
There are 3 different Fraxel lasers: restore, thulium and repair lasers. Each one differs in what they do to your skin and the depth they penetrate. You should consult with your physician who should have advised you on post care instructions. We instruct all our fraxel patients to use plenty of moisturzer and sun protection, in addition to other instructions.
Your should check with the doctor who did your Fraxel laser Treatment.
Not all Fraxel Laser treatments are the same. You should check with your doctor for instructions on proper wound care after your treatment.
