I have just had my second fraxel. I am paying an arm and a leg for these treatments ($1500 each). The pain of each treatment is minimal. I don't know why everyone is complaining. The numbing cream totally negates any pain. I break out in whiteheads after each treatment for about 5 days. That is the absolute worst. I hate it and leaves me red to the point of making me wonder if this is worth it.
I DO see significant improvement in my melasma (upper lip, orbital eye area, forhead) but i get the feeling that i am being scammed somehow. The doctor immediately was like "6 treatments will be needed" and didn't increase the intensity on my second one. Is he supposed to? I wonder if i am not getting my money's worth?
I believe in the treatment, but do i really need 6?
