Fraxel - Fat Loss! - Albuquerque, NM

At age 40 I had 4 fraxel treatements. Shortly after the 4th treatment I noticed that the fat under my eyes was gone. My skin had become so thin that you can see the veins under my eyes!

At age 42, my overall facial appearance is substantially older looking that others my age. My Dr. assures me that it impossible for Fraxel to cause this kind of damage. He says I have spent too much time in the sun, which is not the case. The only good thing was the temporary disappearance of small red spider veins.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to correct this kind of fat loss? I want my face and my money back!

UGH!! Although this is rare, it does happen and seems to be happening to people more and more. Did you have any textural issues as well?

Hi Sammy,

Welcome to the Fraxel community. I'm so sorry your procedure did not work as you had hoped. You might want to check out the forum post, How Long did your Fraxel Side Effects Last, it might help. Have you gone to see another doctor? Please keep us updated.

Thanks so much for the review,
