Repair X5 for Acne Scars and Aging

I am almost 3 weeks post my 2nd Fraxel Repair.  Both were done at 70mj-60%.  I have encountered no problems and quick healing times.  I am doing this for acne scars and aging, and the results have been better than for Dermabrasion and CO2.It is too early to tell, but I may go for... READ MORE

2 months Post-Fraxel Re:pair: Red, Brown and Purple Skin Around Eyes - London, UK

I am in my late forties and had full-face Fraxel Repair for general skin rejuvenation. The procedure was quite painful despite a topical anaesthetic and sedative (I was crying). I still look as if my face has been in a deep-fat fryer. The main problem is that the clinic's view of... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair - New York

I had Fraxel Repair at age 51 in April of 2010. I had IV sedation for the procedure so I did not have any pain. I remember being in some pain when I woke up but that subsided. The recovery was difficult for me. I followed my doctor's instructions and set an alarm clock to go off every hour... READ MORE

Don't Let a Board Certification, "Expert" or "World Renowned" Status Fool You - La Jolla, CA

I did this for subtle acne scars and even more subtle pigmentation. I now live with problems one thousand times worse than what I had before the laser and sadly, thin skin and scars are permanent.

Fraxel Repair "Airbrushed" my Face! - Newport Beach, CA

At 51, I was feeling that my aging face no longer matched the youthfulness I still feel physically and mentally. I didn't want to undergo something as invasive as a facelift. After much research, Fraxel Repair seemed like the way to go. I was, however, cautiously optimistic. Dr. L and... READ MORE

Fraxel Laser: Can You Live with the Worst Case Scenario? - La Jolla, CA

I easily had skin in the top 5% of all skin I've ever seen. I was grateful for that, and eager to take the best care of it. My doctor said I'd be "treating" my condition/minor flaws, and "rejuvenating" my skin, making it "better". I regret this everyday. I have lost my healthy skin that people... READ MORE
