PRO: Minimal tightening...maybe 10-15%
PRO: Think you're going to be happy with results at 10 days out, but then swelling goes away and real results come through.
PRO: Brown spots diminished in appearance
CON: Acne scars which prompted the procedure are still there but my $5,000 is not.
CON: 3 new line shaped scars w/ discoloration
CON: White streaks down one side of my face.
CON: New acne scars from post-Fraxel acne outbreak
CON: Loss of confidence as I have lost my beautiful skin texture and glow...very dry skin now. Husband says I look older than before Fraxel and he's "horrified" he let me do this.
CON: The amount of stress and loss of control this brings to your family is just not worth the minimal "result".
CON: Large pores that were never an issue before.
CON: Lost a full month of work waiting to "recover" enough to go back to life in the public eye and makeup still can't hide it all.
Save your money...more importantly save your soul and peace of mind. Skip Fraxel. You only get one face!
Note that the brown spots actually are coming back...

My Doctor: name not provided
Not singling out my doctor. I wouldn't recommend ANY provider based on my experience. My doctor seemed like a decent guy in many ways, but I don't know how anyone can sleep at night doing this to people all day long knowing what the consequences will be, even for all the money in the world.
