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 ›

This is my first treatment and just like others have stated, it was painful. I have scars from acne since I am a picker and cannot stand to see or feel any bumps on my face.

Had fraxel duo on face and neck about an hour ago. I decided to try fraxel on face and neck and probably CO2 on the eyes (total fx).
