6 Months out with Fraxel Repair Neck and Face - Charlotte, NC

Fraxel Repair is by far no facelift, but you do get results. Up to three months out I had very smooth skin. I'm guessing it is a temporary look, much like a peel. I was reddish and smooth as a baby's behind. Now six months out you can see the lines again. My face is not as taut. The... READ MORE

Tons of Pain - California

Tons of pain!!!! not much results. I have tried all three of Fraxels lasers now and I am disapointed in the results of the Repair. I tried to get my monry back.

Please Have the Doctor Perform the Fraxel Treatment and Not an Aesthetician!

I have mild acne scars and a few sun spots that were bothering me. I went to a plastic surgeon to see what my options were. The aesthetician recommended that I get a series of Fraxel done. Falling for her sales pitch, I agreed. I've had two Fraxel Re:Pair treatment done a month apart and... READ MORE

I Had the Fraxel Repair Done in July. It Did Take a Full Week to Appear in Public. Totally Worth It.

I had the fraxel repair done in July and it did take a full week to appear in public. Since my doctor gave me shots for nerve blocks, the pain was not so bad. I had been fully warned that the pain would be intense-it was no walk in the park. The next morning, my face looked pretty bad. My... READ MORE
