Had my first Fraxel last week for wrinkles and mild pigmentation. More painful than I expected. Very swollen the next 2 days with eyes very puffy and skin very red, then dry and peeling = was told to expect this so no problem. Developed 6 very ugly cold sores on nose and top of lip, which I wasn't happy about. They've gone away now (Day 9) after first Fraxel. Am supposed to have 2 more treatments but am not yet convinced about the results. Any thoughts? Am I just being too impatient?

Procedure performed by nurses not doctor. They were very helpful and reassuring.
