I had fraxel on my upper legs about 6 weeks ago and I still see a lot of redness. Is this normal?

Fraxel is a great laser for sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, and wrinkles.  If you could post a photo of your legs it would be helpful.  Generally speaking the body takes longer to heal than the face.  If you have any concerns I would return to your treating physician for examination.  For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with the Fraxel laser.
