Excellent Way to Turn Back the Clock a View Years - Miami Beach, FL

The fraxel repair was pretty intensive but not unbearable. After the procedure there was no pain but the skin had to recuperate and needed care. There were soaks that had to be done every hour for the first day. After a week I went out with sunglasses and a big hat. My skin was pink and it... READ MORE

Post Procedure Tips - Houston, TX

I'm 57 years old and have sun damage on my face. I'm not expecting the Fraxel Repair to give the same results as a facelift (I already had a lift last year). I just want to get rid of the fine lines, brown spots, enlarged pores, and some old acne scars. I have the post procedure insrtuctions but... READ MORE

First off, sorry I did not take before and after pictures -- I'll try to explain my results in words instead. I'm a 33 year old male who has done 3 tours in Afghanistan and 1 tour in Iraq. I developed major sun spots on my face (nose and cheeks) from sun exposure, especially from Iraq -- a lot... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair for Stretch Marks - Yerevan, Armenia

I have tried several methods for easing the look of my stretch marks. In the past, I had four treatments of the Fraxel Re:store laser (Erebium laser), and the re:store laser did not work. However, I recently had two treaments of my 16 year old white stretch marks with the Mixel Co2 fractional... READ MORE

Fraxel-2nd Treatment So Far So Good - Miami, FL

I bought 3 fraxel sessions on groupon for a whopping $139, actually $129 because i referred someone to Groupon. I know it sounds insane but thats ill I have paid out of my pocket. The only downside is that my face wasnt numbed before hand so it was kind of painful. I am 35 years old and... READ MORE

Full Face Fraxel Repair - Westchester, NY

The procedure was fine, little discomfort but not bad. Took a week off of work and didn't leave the house for 4 days. Under the eyes took the most time to heal. The main reason I did fraxel repair was to remove/lighten the sun spots and it didn't work. I now use Retin A 10% and Retin A 5%, works... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair - Newport Beach, CA

Definitely worth it. Cannot believe you are 90% healed in a week when I looked so scary 2days after. Dr. Liu was honest in explanations of what to expect after and made sure she answered all question. I look and feel 10 years younger. You know it worked when your 18 year old tells you you look a...

Fraxel C02 Done, Some Complications - Florida

I am day 4 and in the worst pain. I had my face, neck and chest done. Day 1 was ok. Apparently, the script that I got for valtrex was for the generic and not the original. I started to get red and redder, and now I am red/purple day 4. I have run a fever since day 1. I actually got sick day 2... READ MORE

Scarred for Life - Athens, Georgia

If you are going to try fraxel, research, and make sure a dermatologist is the one doing it. Go to a reputable dr. With lots of credentials. I had a setting of 8 or 10 and 5 passes. After about a year, my face crashed. I had noticed deep red track marks around my mouth. It looks like lines all... READ MORE
