Dr Lim was professional, explained the procedure and told me I could expect a 30% cosmetic improvement in the demarcation line ,between my previous co2 laser depigmentation and the sun damaged skin along my jawline. I was delighted with the result as there is at least a 90% improvement and the... READ MORE

A nurse used the Fraxel Laser on me in a medical spa quite unprofessionally, if not dangerously. She held the hand unit too long on one area of my jawline, which is called "stacking" in the trade. It instantly caused intense pain, and this has never abated in all the years later (now 5). I... READ MORE

Dr Dawes-Higgs suggested I have fraxcel to improve the appearance of the acne scars I have on my face. I put my absolute faith in Dr Dawes-Higgs and was not dissappointed. I had 5 treatments which Dr Dawes-Higgs advised would be the best for me over a 6 month period. The procedure itself is... READ MORE

While at times it was a little uncomfortable it was definitely tolerable. Cold air was blown on my face during treatment to take away any discomfort. I was red and a bit swollen for a couple of days but still was able to work the next day. After a couple of weeks my skin looked much clearer... READ MORE

I literally just tryed Fraxel on a whim. I was in the doctors office getting laser hair removal when I found out about this. I paid $1800 for five treatments (spaced a month apart) the same day with only reading a pamphlet about it. I'm so glad I took the gamble! I had a blotchy T-zone,... READ MORE

I would really really think carefully if you want to have laser. I have had four over the course of three years, the date I have put is my first. The skin is ultra sensitive to sunlight, whether it be strong summer sun, or cold winter sun. The texture of the skin changes, pores become... READ MORE

Union square laser dermatology is definately a practice I trust and would go back for further treatments! Everyone from the clerical staff to the clinical staff are extremely nice and helpful. The office is conveniently located by pretty much all the trains and in a great location like Union square. READ MORE

I went to Dr Salomon office to have a fraxell treatment done because I have melasma, and it is supposed to help with dark pigmentation. I had a consultation with Mary the best PA!!

I had a fraxel laser treatment on medium setting on February 2 to address some sun spots. The doctor applied numbing cream and let it sit on my face for about 45 minutes. The procedure itself was not very painful. It burned and stung a little, but not horrible. The whole thing took about 15... 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 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
