ok I had a total of 5 fraxel treatments over 5 months and recovery time was honestly at least 7 days, therefore I would have the treatment on a Friday afternoon and by monday I would return to work. Some people commented and others said nothing. I never said anything exept once I told them it was a wind burn from shoveling in the cold. I applied lots of cream to get rid of the dryness. My skin is continuously looking better and better.. I will do it again in the future as I am pleased with the results.
I am fair skinned and had my first fraxel treatment. Day 1,2 quite pink and day 3 pink and peeling, day 4 pink and peeling, day 5 less peeling and less pink. My skin looks refreshed, and like "a good skin day" (same as good hair day). I will be doing a total of 5 treatments at one a month, so I will let you know how it works out for each treatment... So far I am very pleased and see that with more treatments, continued improvement.. so far better than any creams I have used.. impressive :)
