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

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

About 3-4 years ago I went to my dermatologist asking about ways to reduce my acne scarring. He had referred me to another dermatologist who had experience with laser treatments. In my consultation, he suggested I do Fraxel treatments due to my ethnicity (asian with dark skin). I did not like... READ MORE

I'm 23, and have battled acne throughout my high school and early college years. Now that the breakouts are gone, I've been desperately wanting to try Fraxel for sometime. I've heard mixed to good things, but really thought I'd fair well with the laser. I finally found a laser center in New York... READ MORE

I have been saving for this procedure and I am going Monday to set it up.. I talked to my surgeon about it, when I was getting my botox a couple of months ago. He said you will love it, that the people that's had it done, don't have to wear base makeup anymore. I have wore foundation since I was... READ MORE

Please do not do fraxel especially of you have acne prone or sensitive skin. I am currently at my dermatologists office in tears because my once clear skin has been breaking out like a teenager for the past 11 days. And it's still spreading! Every day there's a few more white head pimples Or... READ MORE

Today I went in for my first fraxel laser treatment at Bellair Laser in Toronto (Yorkville location) and I am very pleased with the results so far. By that I mean, the pain was much more tolerable than I had anticipated, and my skin feels very soft and smooth immediately after. I was really... READ MORE

I'm 60, female, history of oily skin and pimples, not cystic acne. Still have active T-zone: oily, occasional whiteheads, milia, seb. hyperplasia, large pores, mild scarring. Worst area is chin and below mouth corners: bumpy, crepey, lots of tiny wrinkles, scars, large pores, thin skin, easily... READ MORE

I just had a fraxel to treat fine lines around mouth, eyes, and under chin area. I sat with numbing cream for about 45 minutes. The procedure took about 30 minutes. After the treatment my skin felt hot and looked like I had a sunburn.... After a few hours my face cooled down but there is still... READ MORE

I have tried chemical peels as well as microdermabrasion but am not happy with the results after each procedure. I have finally got my... READ MORE
