Can there be no side efftects with the fraxel?

I received a fraxel treatment on Monday, there isnt a sign of swelling, redness or pain. Was the procedure done correctly. The setting was 6. Medium strength.

Fraxel and side effects

Fraxel Laser is a fabulous tool in facial rejuvenation and it is my favorite laser.  There is no setting "6" on the Fraxel so I am not sure if you had the Fraxel or some other fractionated laser procedure.  I suggest you return to your treating physician and discuss the concerns and expectations.  For the best results please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Fraxel.

I have been doing Fraxel laser treatments for almost 7 yrs now. I have not had any problems with any of my patients. you should seek advice from your doctor if the signs and symptoms do not settle soon
