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 decided to do fraxel on my back - So Far So Good - Houston, TX

I decided to do fraxel on my back which had severe acne scaring from my teen years. The procedure was not painful, though it felt tingly and prickly, like someone poking my with a sharp roller brush, not the rubber-band snap feeling you get from laser removal. I will post updates as I heal;... READ MORE

Package of 4 Fraxel Treatments - Toronto, Canada

To reduce/remove acne scarring, pros: smoothed out bumpy patches of scars, cons: downtime/peeling skin. I had my 1st of 4 sessions for acne scarring. The main difference after the 1st was the "flattening" impact, the scars I used to have had a crater / hole texture and was... READ MORE
