I went for Fraxel Laser for my acne scars. I had it performed on 02/17/09 and I will post my comments as I continue with the treatment.

I researched Fraxel for over a year & got as much info as I could. I saw this Dr. on a news program talking about Fraxel so I made an appt. I didn't get to see him but the tech sounded knowledgeable. Another tech did the procedure tho. The first treatment was so excruciatingly... READ MORE

Had one procedure and not sure yet if its worth it yet but my pores are smaller and the swelling has subsided... That said, here is the progression so far. I had the procedure done in Rancho Bernardo ($600) The procedure was administered by a nurse and they recommened a series of 3 treatments... READ MORE

I cant believe the dramatic results from this procedure, my wife is a laser technician, so I get ALOT of services done for free. I used this for my stretch marks, burn scar, facial wrinkles, and sun damage. I can honestly say that EVERY problem I had was taken care of. After the first treatment... READ MORE

I just finished my 5th and final Fraxel laser treatment last Friday. I am 58 years old with acne scarring consisting of pits on my lower cheeks. I also have lines above my lips. The treatments were fairly painful, but not bad with a Valium. My face was very red for about a week, then a lot of... READ MORE

I'll admit it hurts and don't like the swelling after, BUT my results have been wonderful. I decided to get fraxel to get rid of my brown spots. Not only are some completely gone, many are still fading. ALSO, the reduction of my fine lines and wrinkles are amazing. AND, that's only after two... READ MORE

I'm very pleased with the procedure and feel like my skin has improved immensely. I still have a few spots, but they are hardly noticeable. The procedure was easy and the repair time was about a week. Will definitely do again! I had really dark spots so I needed to go in twice and the second... READ MORE

Had Fraxel Dual with Jen at Dr. Cohen's in San Diego. She's great! I would highly recommend the treatment. It removed all of my brown spots and my skin looks great. I do have pretty good skin overall, as I do not spend a lot of time in the sun. I had the procedure first on my chest to see... READ MORE

I wanted smoother skin, free of little lines and imperfections from old acne scars. Love how my skin looks. I don't need much makeup at all, I'm just used to wearing it. The texture is so smooth and fine lines are gone. The only pain I had was during the injections to deaden. No pain at all... READ MORE

I decided to go through with a series of 6 Fraxel laser treatments to improve my acne scarring. The treatments are painful, require downtime and are expensive. I was told 3 would not be enough for me, but after seeing little to no results at all after 6 treatments I decided to give up on this.... READ MORE

I purchased the TRIA Age-Defy laser in 2014. It uses fraxel technology. I used as directed approximately 8-10 times over a 2 week period. My skin started to look wrinkled around my eyes and was staying red longer than a day. So, I stopped using. About a month later, I got the typical fraxel... READ MORE

I tried Fraxel for the first time on Friday. I have melasma and hypo-pigmentation, as well as old acne scars. I am hoping to even out my skin tone. The treatment itself was very painful. Even with the numbing cream, it was nearly excruciating. I was swollen Friday night and Saturday. Yesterday,... READ MORE

I actually use to see other doctors under Advanced Dermatology a while back and wasn't really satisfied with their services until I met Dr.Kaleroy Papantoniou.
