I had my face and neck done with the fraxel repair in an effort to reduce wrinkles. The procedure itself was not too bad although I did look I had gone through a meat grinder. Bandages have to be changed every 2 hours for the first 2 days and you must use great care. I was so excited to look in the mirror and not see wrinkles. However, as time passed and the swelling went down, the wrinkles came back. I was SO hoping that I would see some benefit. Two years later, you would never know I had anything done. So, three weeks ago, I had a facelift, neck, and foreheard lift. Erbium Yag laser and SMAS lips. I should have NEVER wasted my money on the Fraxel.
