This is my second fraxel repair for treating premature aging under my eyes. The first time through I experienced the normal swelling and redness which slowly faded over the period of 2 weeks or so. I was happy with the first treatment and decided to do a second treatment to improve the area... READ MORE

Horrible result. I regret it everyday. I had great recovery and thought I would love results, but after 4 months my result was worse than when I started with crepey skin under eyes and I was left with hyperpidmentation I did not have that has not responded to tri-luma or hydroquinone or renova...

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

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

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

I wanted to get rid of some of my wrinkles and sun damage but was afraid of plastic surgery. READ MORE

To look younger, tighten and refine skin, even out skin texture and color, remove fine lines READ MORE

I have been using biafine at night since day 4 post fraxel repair. I am now on day 8. I am not expereincing any problems other than being a deep red.  I just want to  use the very best healing cream possible. Also, can you buy neocrutis over the counter? and can you just switch... READ MORE

I just had a Fraxel Repair treatment 4 days ago. Some small acne scar areas where also injected with hyaluronic acid 2 hours prior to the Fraxel repair treatment. The skin recovery is proceding as normal, but the question is now: Should I use the Bioptron light source to speed up recovery time?... READ MORE

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

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? Only reason I had this done was for underneath my eyes and they look much worse. Procedure was done as... READ MORE

I had Fraxel Repair procedure done 13 days ago. I have just turned 40. Before the procedure I had a soft, beautiful, smooth, flawless skin. No scar, no acne, no acne spots/scars, no discoloration, redness, or any other possible flaws; only an extremely mild case of wrinkles which I've been... READ MORE

I have very mild acne scarring on my face that I wanted to improve. I also have large pores and some sun damage on my forehead that I wanted to improve. My doctor said i would see the best improvement just in overall tone and texture which he said would be greatly improved. I had Fraxel... READ MORE

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

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

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. My entire face was swollen too and I did not look at all like myself. I also started getting very small whiteheads so my dr.... READ MORE

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...

I had the Fraxel Repair done at the end of February and everyone in the office kept telling me that the more heat the doctor uses when doing the surgery the better the outcome. Unfortunately I had extreme pain when the doctor was doing it and I could not stand the pain at all let alone the heat.... READ MORE

I'm 18 days now post fraxel repair and still have redness. But now I also have small ichy raised blemishes. But they dont seem like pimples My doctor seems to say there is nothing wrong and that I'm progressing normally. Soooo am I??? READ MORE

I'm 54 years old and wanted to do something about the skin on my face, neck & chest. The texture isn't what it used to be, there were freckles, uneven coloring and my skin just looked haggard. Over the years I've spent alot of money on the latest creams and topical procedures... READ MORE
