Great but Subtle Improvement in Skin Texture and Scar - Greenwich, CT

Fraxel dual laser is working very well for me. I saw improvement after two treatments. Dr. Nichols is an excellent practitioner and I felt very little pain. I swelled up considerably after the first treatment. So, on the morning of the second treatment, I started steroids, arnica montana and slept for three nights with my head elevated. Consequently, I had very little swelling, although my face remained red for 5 or 6 days. I decided to forego the steroids for the third treatment and found that it made no difference. Consequently, in my case, the secret to prevent swelling was to start the arnica prior to the procedure and to sleep with my head elevated. The Skinmedica TNS post-procedure treatment that Dr. Nichols gave me is excellent. I would not do fraxel without them. I plan on doing the series of 6 treatments after seeing the improvement that came from just two treatments. The scar on my forehead has also significantly improved.
