Fraxel is an FDA-approved laser treatment intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, skin pigmentation,  sun damage, acne, stretch marks, and, in some cases, the pre-cancerous skin condition actinic keratosis (AK). A handheld device is passed across the skin, sending laser light energy below the surface. This energy stimulates your body's natural production of collagen, rejuvenating the cells and smoothing the skin on the surface. LEARN MORE ›

Chicken Pox Scars, 23, Black Male

At my dermatologists recommendation, I tried the Fraxel laser to help with chicken pox scarring. No noticeable results at all. Did two sessions at about $75 each before I quit wasting my money. Pics are about 2 weeks after treatment. I ended up having the pox marks excised by a plastic surgeon.... READ MORE

Fraxel Destroyed my Face - Dallas, TX
