I did the Fraxel SR750 four years ago and it spread my melasma all over my face and added PIH. After 4 years of unsuccessfully trying to fix the damage, I feel permanently scarred and disfigured and I filed a lawsuit against them.

Contact MCast! I think she can tell you what she used to see improvement!!

I know in the Keys it is summer all year round but things will get better now that fall is approaching. Don't use HQ - it has a horrible rebound effect.

Brit: Can you link her to MCast as well?

KB: What ethnicity are you? Is your entire face darker with PIH or do you have melasma areas?

I am German/Irish so fairly light. I am four months from Fraxel....I have texture/pore issues but am worried about sun exposure as I also have PIH.

I am sorry for your experience.

I am latin and my skin is medium tone. I tan extremely dark. The doctors who have seen me for the pigmentation describe it as PIH from the Fraxel.

Hi Britt:

Unfortunately the devastating effect of the procedure is not reversible. Many doctors have tried unsuccessfully to resolve it. A lot of HQ and Retin A. It lightens up only to darken and spread. The doctors do not have an answer for me.

I will keep everyone updated.

I was looking through our Fraxel reviews you might want to check this one out from loris15 . Sounds like she might be able to sympathize. Yes please keep us updated.

Feel better,
