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 ›

I have deep acne scars on my cheeks (pitted) that I've been wanting to get treated for some time -- I tried 9 sessions of the Clear & Brilliant laser (which helped polish my skin and helped my acne but did NOTHING for my scarring) and an intense pixel laser treatment (did not see very... READ MORE

I had a series of Fraxel treatments (total 3) starting in 2013. Last treatment January 2014. My treatments we're through the the fall/winter so there was no sun exposure post procedures. To be honest, I really didn't need them, I was just being vain and trying to be proactive in preventing... READ MORE

I am not sure how well this works yet. I have done 1 out of 3 recommended treatments. I actually got a pretty good deal for 3. I am so excited to see the results. It's a bit uncomfortable; as if you were getting your whole face waxed a 100 times in one second lol. Not painful at all. It's been 4... READ MORE

Shobhan Manoharan was excellent. I wasn't happy with the original outcome however, Dr Manoharan's attention to detail & service was exceptional. Dr Manoharan continued to work with me until I was happy with the result & I will continue to seek Dr Manoharan's advice. The experience was... READ MORE

Im a 49 year old patient of Doctor Struck. I've been using fillers for years and that seemed to help with the loss of volume over the years but I noticed that my skin also started to loose the elasticity in my skin. I asked Dr. Struck what other alternatives were out there that could help. He... READ MORE

I am nine months post my fourth Fraxel and my face is covered with tiny holes left by the laser, and they seem to getting more prominent as the months go by.The only place where the skin is smooth and normal is around my eyes, where you can see the line of dots following where Fraxel has touched...

___ About Me___ I'm 24 years old and decided to do Fraxel as it seemed to provide overall skin benefits and wanting to stay ahead of the curve in terms of my looks. I'm a performer and so to me this is a form of investment. ___ About doing the procedure___ I went in, and the nice lady at a... READ MORE

I have decided to try laser for pigments on my whole face. I have lived my life in the sun and not protecting my skin and now have many dark pigments on my skin , which looks ageing. Im thinking I need to get on top of it now before I get more & gets darker . The Dr has suggested that I... READ MORE

Wanted this for freckles, spots and preventative maintenance. I believe recovery is going as it should. I wanted to post some photos (bc I had a hard time finding true recovery photos) of the recovery so you get an idea what to expect. I took a week off work for this. Im on day 5 of recovery....

HELP!!!!! I had a Lifestyle Lift in Houston in June 2013, within 7 months I noticed drooping, was scheduled to have fraxel laser done in May 2014 and was told that Dr Kevin Smith would fix the droop at that time. My best friend had the laser at the same time as me. Initially, we were ecstatic... READ MORE

I had read review after review on Fraxel for years. My skin in general was not bad, no acne scars, but I had noticed a change in texture with age & some minor discoloration. I'm fair skinned & freckled since I can remember. I'm pretty religious about SPF. Most of wrinkles, pretty mild for 49,... READ MORE

I got two series of fraxel dual last year by a recommended plastic surgeon in germany after visiting a lot of doctors to find out whats the best option for me.i didn't have much scarring,but it was for hyperpigmentation und texture irregularities and i think one deeper pore.First surgeon...

I've had melasma caused by medication that suddenly appeared approximately 1 year and 1/2 ago. I've tried obagi nu derm, peels, microdermabrasion, Retin A, Vit C, sunscreen (always, still), but it would only slightly fade. I was reluctant to try fraxel after reading the negative reviews. I was... READ MORE

I decided to get Fraxel on the stretch marks on my breast as well as my hips, from my pregnancy 4 years prior. I was hoping to eliminate some of my stretch marks, well that didn't happen! The fraxel wasn't too painful, although it burned and bled and scabbed over, not too much, more like... READ MORE

Fraxel was amazing in clearing my skin of old acne scars and reddened blemishes. After 3 treatments I couldn't even recognize myself in my before photos. It does hurt slightly during the treatment and you will be red for a day or so but it all goes away and you are left with amazing skin that... READ MORE

I'm 49 and with my BIG "50" looming 5 months away I'm starting to notice more and more fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. At my most recent followup appointment related to my augmentation done in 2012, I talk with the surgeon about options/suggestions of what to do? I thought fillers would... READ MORE

I have gotten a total of 5 fraxel SR 1500 treatments over the past year and a half and I have had fairly good results. I am awaiting my 6th one in April (darker skinned patients=less powerful treatments=more treatments). I would love for you guys to judge my skin on how it looks nowadays and... READ MORE

This is my second fraxel treatment. Had it done the 3rd of February 2014. My first fraxel to treat my picking my face scars got good results but not what I wanted. I found that this time I needed to speak up about getting closer to the nose to get all the pores so the skin has an more even look.... READ MORE

I just had this done today. I'm posting about it because there were scary reviews. I can't say yet if results are worth it, but wanted to keep a log. The numbing creams works. I didn't flinch or feel any major discomfort. Felt like Trent tiny hot needles rolling across my face. It was a little... READ MORE
