Pros - not very painful. Looks great 24 hours out, but I think that is mostly because of mild swelling. Who knew swelling could be such a good thing!

I had my first treatment of Fraxel Re:Store yesterday for acne scarring on my cheeks. I can't believe how great my cheeks look today. My guess, however, is that this result is because of the mild swelling and not the actual treatment since I know Fraxel works based on buildin collagen and that takes time. But my cheeks look great today (other than being red). For the first time in years, I don't look in the mirror and see indented scarring.

So when I go back for my second treatment, should I talk to my dermatologists about a filler such as Sculptra? Would that give me similar results to the mild swelling in my cheeks?
