Fraxel Re:pair - Boise, ID

I had Fraxel Re:Pair almost three weeks ago. I carefully researched my doctor and the procedure. Most of what I read is true about this procedure, in my experience. Its quite expensive, but included general anesthesia. If I'd had my whole face and neck done, it would have been $6000, the... READ MORE

Dont Get Fraxel Repair... - Minnesota

Im 23 I received the profraxelional which is basically the same name for fraxel repair... I wanted to fix two pot marks left from acne and the dermatologist recommended the fraxel. I only did a small patch on my cheek but wish i would have just left it alone. It may have helped one of the scars... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair - Effective but Worse Than They Tell You!-Australia

I had Fraxel Repair, fairly significant. (Depth of 20-25 if that means anything to you.) The bad things that I didn't expect: It was way more painful than I was prepped for. (Not the procedure itself, which I had under anaesthesia, but the recovery was definitely 10 days of pain.) More... READ MORE

absolutely worth it - California

Fraxel Repair especially when combined with Thermage is absolutely worth it ! I have done it twice now and each time I have noted up until a year later the excellent results. Tighter and more elastic skin, major reduction in fine lines and an overall glow that makes one look very rested and... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair - Microscarring Problems

I had Fraxel Repair 4 months ago and it has been a disaster. I'm now suffering from what they call "micro-scarring" which has created a terrible texture on my skin. My acne scars are better, but the microscars that were left behind bother me each time I look in the mirror. My skin... READ MORE

Fraxel - Question About my Results

I am three weeks out from Fraxel Repair...Question - I have deep grooves underneath my eyes that were not there before! Will these improve with time with collagen fill or is this my end result?

My Fraxel Repair 05/14/10 for Skin Laxity

64 hours post-procedure To write a review here, you are forced to choose a satisfaction level. It's far too early to say, so I chose "good" because it's right in the middle. That said, I'm absolutely expecting "excellent" results! Well, everything I've... READ MORE

Fraxel Repair Nightmare - San Diego, CA

I am two weeks out from a fraxel repair and the recovery has been nothing short of a nightmare. I have scars forming around my eyes and my face is still so red that someone asked my if I was having an allergic reaction. My skin is so sensitive that when I plucked an eyebrow hair it left a bruise... READ MORE

Day 3 of Fraxel Repair - Swelling, Whiteheads, You Name It

Well, I was told these would be the typical side effects. I woke up on Day 2 with my eyes swollen shut! Thank God my husband was home to drive me to my post-op appt.

Hopeful and Positive then Disappointed and Worth 7k Less Than Before

I looked good for about a month (probably due to swelling)then it started to go down from there. (I was told it lasted five to seven years) I never had acne,and I suspect that this procedure is mainly for those who have scars etc. My formerly smooth skin now has brown rough spots, and you can...
