The Fraxel Laser was the most painful experience I have ever experienced. Every time the RN would apply the lazer I would literally jump out of the chair - it felt like fire was being applied to my face. I couldn't take the pain anymore and told the RN to stop. The next appt. she gave me Demeral - a pain med. 30 min. prior to the treatment, it did help but I could still feel the pain.
My face was very swollen and red for a week after, I did see some improvement but not as I expected. After spending that much money, I wish I would have spent it on a face lift.
I am 50 and have been told I look 35. Now, I using the NuFace microcurrent thing and have notice my face is firmer and younger looking. AND there is no pain involved.
