White Cut from Fraxel Laser

I just had lazer fraxel today and have a deep white cut from the lazer. Is that normal or a mistake?

I can't imagine that you got a cut from Fraxel Restore. Fraxel Repair does wound the skin more aggressively than the Restore. I'm not sure what a white cut means. There often are swollen pale edges of  treatment zones that may look like a linear groove. This fades in a day or so. Please see your physician soon to evaluate your condition.
