Just had first fraxel four days ago..here's my scoop.
The doctor covered my face with a freezing jel..I waited an hour and then had the treatment. Pain wasn't half as bad as I expected by reading reviews here. I'd say about 4/10. Some areas were more sensitive than others, and the closer she got to the hairline the more it hurt. I had fraxel re-store. Apparently re-pair is much more painful as per my doctor. Make sure you ask which you are having. I took two extra strength tylenol one hour before going and I think this helped..
Now, as for the down time..it's at least two to three days. I was terribly swollen the first two days, and looked really odd..my eyes were almost swollen shut that first morning I woke up. Now my skin is really itchy and peeling. All these things I was told to expect. There were no surprises. I have purchased a package of five. Will let you know how number two goes in three weeks. Good luck!
My doctor was amazing. I liked her straightforward responses, and everything she said, happend.
