I did a lot of research about Fraxel before going through the procedure. So I knew that it wouldn't be a work of magic.
About the treatment: it is very painful and it takes about a week to recover, forget about that "going back to work the same day" thing. You will look red and swollen for days, and the higher the intensity of the laser, the longer it takes to recover.
I did 4 sessions, the first at 45, the second at 55, the third at 65 and the fourth at 70 (which is the maximum for the laser used on my treatment). My treatment was for acne scars so it has to be very aggressive for optimum results.
I am very happy with the results. I had Fraxel done for acne scars and saw about a 70% improvement!
Loved the med spa where I had it done and the nurse was aswesome.
Hope you also get great results with your fraxel. Now I am looking to get some IPL too!
