Fraxel Repair - Almost 60 and Now Not Happy in my Own Skin - Durham-Chapel Hill, NC

I had Fraxel Repair 3 weeks ago. I reacted to the numbing agent so was given adovan and dental blocks which I don't recall as I was not fully conscious. The recovering process has been wrought with extreme redness, itchiness and patches of sand-paper like skin. I am concerned that I am... READ MORE

Results of Fraxel Repair Were Not Worth the Downtime

Not worth the downtime (in terms of lasting sustainable results). Better tone,but wrinkles came right back (in fact it seemed as if more showed up). READ MORE

Fraxel Repair Results Were Gone After 3 Months

I had fraxel repair on Jan. 6. I was so excited and happy for 3 months. My skin looked great, pores were reduced, the lines were gone, and the skin under my eyes looked like I was 20 again. At the end of April it was like the life was sucked out of my face.Everything went back to the way I... READ MORE

Fraxel Wasted my Time, Money and Hurt Horribly! My Sister Had Poor Results Too.

This was an absolute waste of money and time out of work. I was red and peely much longer than I was told I would be. It took forever and it hurt horribly. My sister had the lighter Fraxel treatment done 4 times and had no resuls at all. Fraxel products are a waste. READ MORE

Fraxel Repair - 1 and 6 Mos. Update - Sacramento, CA

I had my fraxel laser repair done Oct. 22nd so it’s been just a month. Right now my face looks great but it feels a little like sunburnt skin. You know, when you sunburn, the top layer of skin feels really smooth and is beautiful right before the whole thing peels off? That’s what my... READ MORE

I had my Fraxel Re:pair Co2 laser on 11/21 - Amazing - San Diego, CA

I had my Fraxel Re:pair Co2 laser on 11/21. I had absolutely no pain during the procedure and after. I was given Valium and Demerol before and nerve blocks. The 1st 72 hours were the most horrifying experience. My face swelled up on day 3 to the point I had to call the doctor cause I thought... READ MORE


I had the REPAIR LASER to reduce fine lines and to, hopefully, increase the collagen level in my skin. Additionally, I hoped it would mitigate my facial broken capillaries. I did not expect it to be a FACE LIFT, but a FACE REFRESHER. After 11 weeks post LASER, with all the swelling gone and... READ MORE

Fraxel Re:pair Viewpoint As a Patient and an Employee - San Diego, CA

I am writing this review from the perspective of both a current patient (Day 5) of my Fraxel Re:pair and as an employee of the plastic surgeon who performed my procedure.

3 Months Since the Fraxel:Repair

I did the Fraxel:Repair 3 months ago for minor wrinkles and mild acne scarring. I am a 34 year old female. I was told I would be able to go back out in public after 5-7 days, it took two weeks before I would even see friends. It was six weeks before the redness could be covered by make-up and...

Just Starting Recovery

Today is Saturday 12/20. I had lipo to hips and Fraxel and CO2 done to my face under general anesthesia, Thursday 12/18. Woke up in the recovery room without much of any pain. Was shocked to see my face. My eyes were swollen and face red and bruised. Overnight, I swole up even more, but... READ MORE

Should Be Done Under Full Anesthesia.

I am on my fourth day of recovery after my Fraxel Re:pair procedure. My recovery has been uneventful, so far, but the procedure was unimaginably painful. It was done in a surgery center, under "twilight" sedation -- and with nerve blocking injections in my face -- but I felt... READ MORE

I’m 17 days post Fraxel Restore procedure. I’m satisfied so far but with some “buts”… The best advice I can give anyone considering Fraxel:Restore is to really is discuss your personal goals with your doctor and then research, research, research.  My personal... READ MORE

Glad I Did Fraxel Repair!!!!

I had fraxel repair done to my face and neck 7 days ago. I am 44 years old and wanted it for eyes crepes, sun damage, and some added lift to face and neck from age.

Ouch...don't Do It! - San Diego, CA

I had i done and it hurt sooo much. You should be put to sleep for that type of treatment! I was told that it wouldn't be that painful! There is a lot of hype about Fraxel but I had very little results from the Repair that I had done and I was red for almost three weeks. I was disapointed that... READ MORE

Fraxel Re:Pair Procedure 3 Days Ago and Results

I am a 39 y/o female who had the Fraxel Re:Pair procedure 3 days ago, and while I would not recommend it for those with low pain tolerance (like myself!), it already appears the results are worth the intense pain. When I first arrived for my appointment, I was given one 10mg Valium and one... READ MORE
