Postive Results, 100% Better! BE PATIENT PEOPLE

OK - I HAD THE MOTHER LOAD ON MY FACE..... Close to the strongest viable treament, I would say only 95% of people in here would have had this percentage. It was to treat scars from a horse riding accident that saw 68% of my face ground up with gravel after a horse ride over my face,... READ MORE

Persistent Dryness Even 10 Days After Fraxel Repair

Its been 11 days since my Fraxel Repair procedure on my face.

Pain and High Cost with Little Result - Boston, MA

I had the more advanced fraxel procedure in which repeated treatments are not necessary. Dr told me it would help with skin tightening, but there would be limited down time. Instead, I had significant burning, almost equal to what I would have had from a conventional laser treatment, but with... READ MORE

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 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

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
