First of all, fraxel cannot be judged after 1 or 2 sessions, you must have the full course of 4-6, and even then it will take up to a year before the collagen has developed to make a judgement.
If you still have adult acne, then prior to fraxel I recommend getting the smoothbeam laser treatment first, which shrinks the sebaceous glands that cause acne. I would also get on prescription medication to eliminate as much acne as possible prior to your first treatment, then continue taking it with your doctors supervision.
I just completed a smoothbeam laser session, and my first of five fraxel treatments. In between I also did a chemical peel. Laser treatments work from underneath the skin, so doing something topical such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion can speed up overall healing and appearance.
So far I am pleased with my doctor and how the treatment plan is going.
The staff were excellent and very patient in answering questions and making recommendations for the best treatment plan.
