I have had freckles since I can remember. I had had age spots that kind've look like freckles for the past 5-7 years. It was making me look older and older -and I hated it. One day as I was lamenting to a client she gave me the info for a doctor she loves in La Jolla. She was so emphatic about... READ MORE

I will be going for my first Fraxel Treatment, I believe it is the Fraxel Restore as it is listed as a non-ablative. I have had some issues with pre-cancerous sun damage spots and have numerous spots on my legs, arms and back, plus some on my face. The doctor froze the spots on my arms, legs... READ MORE

I had my fraxel c02 done at Adora clinic in Tampa Fl. The woman seemed very knowledgeable and has been doing it for over 5yrs. It didn't hurt at all, seriously! The numbing cream works great! Make sure you bring a freezer pack, I live an hour away from the clinic so i should have brought two.... READ MORE

Hi. 3 years ago I decided to undergo laser for some very mild acne scarring on my cheeks. My derm recommended this laser to me & I was told it had very little side effects. I trusted in my derm & decided to undergo a series of 3 treatments. They were 3 months apart & the last one I had was in... READ MORE

I am a 27 year old femalde, I had my first fraxel restore laser treatment in July 2012 for moderate/severe acne scarring. As for the treatment itself: It hurt. Nothing terrible, but it was certainly very uncomfortable. Healing time was the part I liked the least. I spent two days very red and... READ MORE

I had several treatments including Fraxel Laser and fillers, it was so worth it, sure I had a little down time but it was fine and every day after I healed so fast. I am so happy that I had it done and feel so much better. most people don't know what i had done but keep complimenting me on how... READ MORE

I wasnt aware of the full procedure and after doing it i was all squares all over my face and i was told that i would start crusting or peeling on my 3rd day but nothing. I work and the way my face looks i cant go infront of everyone and have hid myself as i look horrible. One would need a whole... READ MORE

I had my fraxel treatment on Tuesday May 27th and it is now June 2nd and I'm still red with pin marks still all over my face. Thought my face would be just pink now.......have not been outside my house since that Tuesday. Just wondering how long this is going to go now before I see my face... READ MORE

I'm 54 years old and wanted to get rid of the lines around and above my mouth. I've always had peaches and cream skin, but was told to do my entire face so the color would match. I also had my chest and neck done because that was the special the plastic surgeon was running in December... READ MORE

Hi All, Writing/Documenting my experience with Fraxel Dual in hopes of helping those who are looking to find an open/honest experience that can hopefully help you in making your own decision. Context I am someone who's suffered with mild acne, all my life. As a result I have scarring, uneven... READ MORE

It's been 3 hour from my first session of fraxel, the doctor decided to do just the 1927 wave length to get rid of my pigmentations and then have me come back for the 1550 which is for acne scars since I really dont want any thing to aggressive on the first time! Like the doctors some where in... READ MORE

Because I can't find before and after photos or reviews, I've decided to start my own review on Fraxel co2 for abdominal stretch marks. I know there are many people with stretch marks that are looking for cures or improvement possibilities just like me, so I wanted to write this review to help... READ MORE

So far I am pleased with the results. I think you have to realistic going into it, not thinking the result will be perfect skin, but improvement. The doctor I had also started me on the lowest setting. Doctor prepared me it may be 2 or 3 treatments before i begin to even see results. Pix show... READ MORE

If i could stop anyone from getting this treatment I would. I am interviewing lawyers and putting posts out to bring a class action suit against the makers of the machines & my doctor. It is clear that the machines destroys the healthy cells in the skin, maybe at first it seems to work, but long... READ MORE

I have rolling acne scars on my cheeks and I am currently doing Laser Fraxel treatments. I am about to go for my 5th treatment. It works great for fine wrinkles (I am 30+), less breath taking for acne scars. Nevertheless I see an improvement. For next winter I was thiking to resume those... READ MORE

It's been 2 months since I had the SmartSkin Laser procedure including fat transfers to my face. The first 2 days I was totally unable to speak from the swollen lips and the crusting from the laser drove me insane. There was absolutely no pain. I was told one week but it was more like 2 wks....

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... READ MORE

I can see some small results but definitely need to go back for a few more follow up treatments. They numbed me for an hour, then reapplied and numbed me for another half hour. It has a blower on the lazer and I can't imagine what it would feel like without that blower. Stung worse around... READ MORE

I had fraxel laser done from 2009-2010 to reduce pigmentation on upper lip, and heal/treat acne. initial treatments were done on whole face, but as it was an expensive process so I focused on upper lip. However I then had to have more areas treated as more pigmentation developed!!! This was... READ MORE

I am having this procedure completed to minimize the appearance of my acne scars. The first procedure went well- not overly painful. I spent an hour sitting with the numbing cream on and then about 45 minutes under the laser. I noticed slight swelling and redness right after so I immediately... READ MORE
