Fraxel Dual for "Melasma Mustache" - Worked when Other Treatments Didn't

Had third fraxel dual to rid my face of the rest of the melasma that the IPL did not get off. I have tried the other Fraxel's which did not help with the melasma at all, including Fraxel Restore and Repair. I would go so far to say that those prior treatments (including oth READ MORE

Melasma Mustache - 90% Gone

I wanted to let the people suffering from melasma know how well a series of IPL's worked on my melasma mustache. Note, however, the series of treatments requires patience as the melasma does not start to break up and really disappear until after about six treatments.

Re:pair Thus Far Not Worth It (Three Months Have Passed)

I too have tried all of the Fraxels.  None of offered much improvement. Thus far, three months have passed since I have done the latest Fraxel -- Fraxel Re:Pair.  I have seen little to no improvement in acne scars, wrinkles and tightening.  I have been told that it can take three to six months to see improvement, but I really doubt it at this time. I have been taken, but... READ MORE

Try Roy Geronemus or Dr. Bernstein in New York City. They are the gurus and I totlly trust them. I had a birth mark that is gone due to them. It tooks a lot of laser treatments but ultimately worked. The number if 212-686-7306. READ COMMENT

He's very expensive, but there's a doctor out here who I met once (he was fine but didn't have the Dual), who also has an office in BOca Raton. I couldn't post his link (this site would not let me), but if you look for... READ COMMENT

No - sorry. I don't want to post my picture. However, it is substantially better with the use of the Dual Fraxel than any other treatment I have tried. READ COMMENT
