I had fraxel 11 days ago. The texture of cheeks, forehead and chin are similar to sand paper. Is this normal?

There are three Fraxel Laser Wavelengths, 10,600nm, 1550nm and 1927nm. They heal differently.
Texture after Fraxel
Texture of skin after Fraxel should exactly feel like sand paper! You had the desired result. I often recommend Epiceram to be used after the procedure. Of course, it is important to use sunscreen and to stay out of the sun.
