A mild sunburn is the most common sensation reported. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.
Fraxel is being used for stretch marks
When you have the Fraxel laser treatment, whether it be for fine lines, pigmentation, or stretch marks, the main feeling for the first two days is as if you have a sun tan or sun burn. The skin may feel a little "hot" for the first two hours and that feeling quickly dissipates. I prescibe a topical emollient to use after the procedure several times duing the day for at least a week after the Fraxel to counter-act that sensation.

Fraxel Restore for Stretch Marks, What Does it Feel Like After Treatment?
Fraxel restore treatment for stretch marks is a relatively painless procedure. Numbing cream is topically applied to the areas treated for about 1 hour. After the treatment, the skin may feel a little warm like a mild sunburn for about 1 to 2 hours. After 1 to 2 hours, there should be no further discomfort. Choose your treating physician most carefully. Good luck and be well.
