Excellent Result with Fraxel

I am 50 years old with very bad sun damage to face...

I am 50 years old with very bad sun damage to face and neck. Many freckles and age spots. Very conscious of them and constantly wear makeup to cover them and I am sick of having to do so.

Have started a course of 5 fraxel treatments. Have only had one so far and found the procedure hurt but could put up with it. No pain, no gain. Hardly any swelling. Gritty feel to face lasted about 3 weeks but unnoticeable to anyone else. Have already noticed a lightening of some age spots.

I am looking forward to seeing the results after the next treatment but am not looking forward to the procedure.

Dr Michael Molton

He is confident and professional in his manner and also very highly trained and very understanding and the staff are very easy to talk to.

Had fraxel laser five times and found that my skin texture improved but my pigmentation was none the wiser and so not that impressed. I also went and had the chemical peel on chest and was expecting the results to be amazing but again much improved but not excellent. After 2 months I still have slight pinkness to skin and the peel was the most painful post-op experience I have ever had. Some dark pigmentation went but not all and will now try and get my hands on very strong lightening creams. If any one knows of any please let me know. I have wasted a lot of money but no-ones fault but own but along the process have learnt alot. Everyone also is different in their results and expectations too.

I'm living in Autralia and thinking of having fraxel treatments, do you know any good doctor in Sydney?

Oh, good luck! I'm hoping it'll work out for me too. Mine wasn't too painful, but since I have to drive one and a half hours to the doctor's office, it means a big chunk of time!

Have now had 2 fraxel treatments so far and after each one my pigment damage darkens and then over a few days lightens. Really havn't noticed too much of a change yet but that is expected though skin feels really good. I can't believe how much it hurts! Good luck. My chest is really bad so that will be my next place of call. Unsure what to do yet but thinking chemical peel. Have to look into it more.

Let us know how you're doing now! Am in the same boat as you (50's, with sun damage) and have just started my treatments.
