I got Fraxel for stretch marks 2 wks ago on abdomen and hips. My skin is still red where the laser was applied. Is it permanent?

Fraxel and Stretch Marks
I am sorry for your side effects but it does not sound like you had the Fraxel laser. It sounds more like IPL laser. Perhaps the settings were too strong for you or your skin type. Unfortunately too often I see patients who were told they had Fraxel and they find out later that it was not the actual laser. Fraxel does not leave squares behind. Please consult a board certified dermatologist who is an expert in lasers for a second opinion.
