Fraxel laser and treatment levels

Please post a photo so that we can help you.  I am not sure if you really had Fraxel or a "fractionated" laser since there is no treatment "level 5".  If your skin type is dark and the settings too high on the laser that you had done you can be hyper pigmented.  I suggest you return for consultation to your treating physician to discuss your concerns before you have another course of treatment.
