fraxel for shallow scars - New Jersey

Amazing! Dr. Rappaport in new jersey was very knowledgeable and a great choice. Had my first fraxel last night and I already see about a 90% improvement in scars on cheeks. I do have to say I pretreated my skin with vitamin c and copper peptides for about a year prior to procedure and I do not know if that helped with scar reduction but I already see a SIGNIFICANT change in skin . Does anyone know if I'm seeing such a dramatic change because I'm swollen ? I'm wondering if it's temporary or the real deal. I can't wait to see how this progresses over the week ! I will definately post photos for y'all.

UPDATE: JUNE 1, 2012

Second Fraxel Restore performed two days ago.... doctor up'd the settings! It definately hurt quite a bit more, on a scale 1-10, I'd give it a 6. Face is very red and I will post a picture. Scars are once again completely gone from swelling. Office pictures showed a 20% improvement from first fraxel, hoping for another 20% improvement this time! I am considering Fraxel Repair next time ! I would definately recommend this procedure to anyone that is looking to clear up dark spots on their skin, because it removes them 100%. Also, fine lines and pore size have been reduced.

If you want to see a close up, check out my last photo. Its one week after my second fraxel, and I'm definately still healing!!!!!!! Red bumps and weird texture but my scars are visibly smaller.

10 days in, my forehead looks AMAZING! Absolutely no pores/scars up there!!!! Wish my whole face looked like this!!!!!!!! Definately going for one more Fraxel Restore, TCA CROSS and than I think I'm going to do one Fraxel Repair on just my cheeks, my scars are definately shallow boxcars.

My skin is a beautiful pigment as of now... very bright and rosy. I was very skeptical but I guess this procedure DOES just take time. One procedure will NOT work, it takes a series.
