I had Fraxel Re-Pair done and my face and Active FX under my eyes exactly 2 weeks ago.
So far, I am not impressed. I still have all the fine lines under my eyes that I really wanted to get rid of. That's why I even did the procedure.
My doc says it takes 4 months for the collegen to build up but I just don't know. I still have a red face, and was extremely swolle, etc.so you would think that something must have worked. My freckles are slightly lighter from the fraxel, but I really have my doubts about the Active Fx.
Anyone have any similar experience?
Does it really get better?

Wow! I am really happy. I saw my doc today for the 4 week check up and I saw the before and after photos. What a difference!! I had active x around my eyes and Fraxel RePair on the rest of my face. We might do a little more around the eyes in 3 months but I am pretty happy. I couldn't really see anything until I saw the before and after photos. My husband kept telling me how good I looked....Now I see it too!!
