I'm 41 years old and have avoided tanning my face for the last 15 years, but still wanted to do something that would improve the overall texture & clarity of my skin.

The procedure itself didn't hurt as much as I anticipated. What WAS extremely painful was how my skin felt immediately after the area was resurfaced. My face felt like the surface of the sun! Ice and a cool fan were all that helped eliminate the burning. I experienced swelling that lasted about 2 days and the redness (which looked like a severe sunburn) lasted about 4 days. It took 7-10 days for the rough/sand-papery texture of my skin to slough off.

A month later, I feel like it took a few years off my appearance and I've never had such smooth skin. I had previous IPL treatments which were great for improving tone, but was a little disappointed that Fraxel did little to nothing to minimize residual dark spots.

Overall, well worth the one treatment and will probably consider doing this every few years or so.
