29 Year Old Scarring. Fraxel on Face. Melesma Around Eyes and Lips. - Brisbane, AU

This is my second fraxel treatment. Had it done...

This is my second fraxel treatment. Had it done the 3rd of February 2014. My first fraxel to treat my picking my face scars got good results but not what I wanted. I found that this time I needed to speak up about getting closer to the nose to get all the pores so the skin has an more even look. This photo is just after the procedure.

Day 3

Today is day three and I've started to scab and get that rough brown look that happens. One side of my face hasn't been done properly due to the numbing cream being put on too thick.
Will hopefully not look too awkward as that is my better side anyway. The nurse is giving me a free treatment due to this stuff up. My advice is if you feel they stuffed up, speak up and sort it out before it's too late. Glad I did.

Not as red as last time too due to the excess numbing cream. Making sure that the girl who put it on won't be the one who puts it on again.

Anyway, still looking forward to my third one and can't wait for the results.

Alst two weeks post laser

I am 13 days post laser and all my peeling has gone. I had a big breakout on my chin which is now going away.
Because of the screw up with numbing cream (they used one with water in it. Not good if the laser targets water cells.) I didn't get penetration on one side. So am getting a complimentary one. As they should. Spent a lot of money.
But in regards of results face looking clearer and more smooth. Can't wait for the last treatment.

Anyway have posted some photos from this morning.
Will update in another week. Hopefully no more breakouts!

Almost 4 months post Fraxel Treatment

Hey everyone,
I am now 15 weeks post Fraxel treatment and my skin is looking fantastic. The little holes on my face have reduced and the scarring I got it for has reduced.
I am still hesitant to get my free one due to the warnings of others about the two year mark. I am really hoping mine will be fine.

But at the moment I am quite pleased with how everything looks. Just wish the pores around my eyes matched the rest of my skin as this has not been touched.

I am using bio oil twice a day for moisturiser and just to assist with the healing ageing process.

Anyways will add photos soon.

Feel free to ask any questions and add on to the debate on whether to get the third Fraxel done. :)

Two years post laser

Hi everyone,
After my third laser in June 2015 I can say I'm reasonably happy with my skin. It's not perfect but not as bad as it was.
I have also been eating healthier, exercising and finally stopped picking my face.

I still recommend Fraxel. It's a great treatment. My last one was supervised by the doctor as last time she put water based numbing cream on my face and the laser focused on that. Lol oh the joys.

So my third and free laser was great. Just before I got married. She also did a more thorough job.

The lines on the side of my face when I smile are just part of age. A lot of people talk about it like its something that's happened post Fraxel. NO!

My husband is polish and had the most amazing skin. Looks 12 when he shaves (he's 36) lol. And he has the exact thing. So it comes down to skin types and how your skin reacts.

The nurse Emily is really friendly and open to your questions. But I would recommend you check what has been done. As last time she didn't cover as much as I would like/she should and this time she missed a 1inch round area round my cheek which she fixed promptly when I mentioned it. Really my advice is be assertive. Your paying big money for your skin health. :)
