It's been 10 days since I had my very first fraxel treatment and the treating areas are now covered with patterns of tiny brown spots and hyperpigmentation. I've read lots of reviews online and learned that the downtime for fraxel should last no longer than a week. In my case, is this normal, and will this go away? I've been struggling with severe stretch mark problems for many years and finally decided to get it fixed. I was told that a combination of carboxy and fraxel treatments would lead to an optimal result, so I decided to give it a try. However, from what I'm experiencing, it could've been a bad decision. The actual damange is more severe than the photos.
