Fortunately I had the blepharoplasty(eyelid surgery) at the same time as the fraxel treatment and I was completely out. Did not feel a thing! Boy did I when I woke up! The first day was not to bad except for my eyes were black and blue and my face was sensitve and oozing. Day two forward was not fun. I was very very swollen and uncomfortable. Also, remember my eyes are bruised and swollen as well . I looked like a freak. My skin was very tight and starting to peel by day four. I had begun taking motrin so the swelling had subsided some but no way was I going out in public. By day six most of my skin had peeled but eyes were still bruised. Day seven had the stiches in my eyes removed, swelling is much better and most of the peeling has stopped. I even went out to lunch!

Very pleased with the doctor and his staff. Wish I had been more prepared for the recovery. Recommend to any having this procedure take off a week for down time. Also, glad I was sedated. Have heard its an uncomfortale procedure.
