I perform thousands of Fraxel laser and the common directions are eight passes in each area. I would return to your treating physician and discuss your concerns. Best, Dr. Green
Eight passes are minimum for Fraxel. Nevertheless, even with eight passes, the results for tightening are, in our experience, not as significant as what can be achieved with other devices such as Fractora, that both tightens and re-texturises the skin. (We own several machines in our office and can make such comparisons easily.) It is important that you be evaluated by a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon who is very well versed with multiple technologies and can advise you on the best technology for your needs.
Best wishes in your quest,
