I had had laser work done for spider veins and rosacea. I have had botox also. Always good results. At 47 my face aged dramatically due to stress in my life. I purchased a set of 4 fraxel's.
My treatment went smooth, my faced burned like a really bad sunburn, but i expected this. Next morning when I awoke, my face was extremely swollen..by nighttime I was so swollen I was unrecognizable and by the next morning my eyes were swollen shut that I could not drive my kids to school. I went back to the clinic and they said I was in 10% that had an allergic reaction to the fraxel. I had to take a steroid (prednisone)for three weeks and my face did not return to normal for 6 weeks.
I looked like a freak and because of the swollen and stretched appearance, my wrinkles were worse then when I went in. This is a dangerous laser, and there is no guarentee that it will not damage your skin. I would NEVER get it.
