Fraxel AGED and DAMAGED my Skin Too!!!! - Newport Beach, CA
I looked young for a 30 y/o. Most people thought I...
After only one fraxel treatment my skin and face look 15-20 years older.
Motivation for this was minor acne scarring.
I had beautiful SMOOTH and TIGHT skin but just wanted to even out the shallow mild acne scars.
Instead I have SUFFERED greatly (with only 1 treatment):
Fat loss/volume loss!!!
Orange peel texture!!!
Micro bumps all over skin that won't go away, similar to a rash
Depressions where beam hit one spot more than once
No oil production
No sweat production
Blood vessel damage
Puffy eyes (never had puffy eyes!)
Oil glands in eyes dried up! (Laser didn't even get the eyelids)
Lips dried up (Laser didn't even get the lips)
Wrinkling / sagging of skin everywhere
Smokers lip (never smoked! And I don't perse my lips!) (skin above the lip)
Bags under eyes
Face will not regulate heat instead it gets red (never used to) and hot and eyes get puffy because of this.
Face shape change (due to loose skin and fat/volume loss)
Face has odd moments of extreme heat circulation with no increase in activity
Pores HUGE (I had small lovely pores prior).
It's been over 10 months. I'm still suffering both physically and emotionally.
NO DOCTORS I have seen will throw any other doctor or procedure under the bus. They all have given pat answers like you're just aging.
I know my face before and after and NO ONE GOES from 25 y/o looking to 45/50 y/o looking in 10 months!
Do yourself a favor STAY AWAY FROM ALL LASERS!
This procedure is NOT WORTH a second glance!
