It's been 2 weeks since I had my Fraxel and I'm now covered with tiny brown dots and hyperpigmentation. Is this normal? (photo)

I would recommend contacting your provider to assess the area and determine what topical treatments will be helpful during your recovery. Good luck!
Fraxel and post-op
Fraxel is a fabulous procedure for sun damage on the face, neck, chest, or other areas of the body. The tiny brown dots like sandpaper from the laser usually take at least a week to heal in the face and up to four weeks on other areas of the body. The settings and body site both can make healing time differ. If you are concerned please consult your treating physician for re-assurance. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Fraxel.
