I had my fraxel c02 done at Adora clinic in Tampa Fl. The woman seemed very knowledgeable and has been doing it for over 5yrs. It didn't hurt at all, seriously! The numbing cream works great! Make sure you bring a freezer pack, I live an hour away from the clinic so i should have brought two. (they sell them for a dollar at the dollar store) you just hit them when ready to use. They gave me one at the clinic but that wasn't enough. The procedure took about 40min., no pain, the numbing cream wore off in about an hour. I took two Tylenol, I don't know i i would have needed them but took them anyway. I used ice packs for the next few hours. My face was fine as long as i kept it cool. I have malasma, and wrinkles, that was why i did it. The malasma looks worse, but thats expected, I also just bought Hormone Balance Formula made from Superior Source (bought from a natural store), taking 1 zinc, and 2 milk thistle 1000mg. and DefensePlus by NutriBiotic 1 a day, and a good multi. (mine was very cheap with coupon, i think it was from their site)

Fraxel

It has been a couple mths. Unfortunately, neither my husband or I see much of a difference at all from before and after. There was a day in there where I thought I would keep looking better. Just look the same as I always did. No biggie, but waste of $350 :(

Fraxel

It didn't seem to do anything:-( what a waste of money, prob very damaging to skin as well, now have to be more careful about being in the
sun. I have malasma, not an answer for that!
