"It did nothing for me. I simply wasted money. I went several times at $1000 to try to rid my skin of some acne marks. " - Submitted by tn t. of Orange County, CA
"After consulting with many doctors, I went with one in NY (where I live) and had the first treatment today. HE studied with Fitzpatrick and one of the guys that worked with the company.

Fraxel® differentiates itself from other Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments by dividing a targeted area of skin into microscopic regions known as Micro Thermal Zones, or MTZ. During your treatment, this incredibly precise form of Fractional Laser Resurfacing enables the technician to precisely target age spots or sun spots without touching any surrounding, healthy skin tissue. As a result, the treatment is performed with much higher accuracy, with no unnecessary pain or damage.
Many Fraxel® treatments can be completed in just 30-45 minutes.
Fraxel Side Effects / Risks:
Swelling and redness is common for a day or two. There may be some peeling, as well, but far less than with most types of laser skin treatments.
Duration of Fraxel Results:
Fraxel® can start working after just one treatment, but to get results lasting upwards of a year or more, additional treatments will usually be required.
None needed, though some may choose to rest a day due to minor redness and swelling.
As a cosmetic treatment, Fraxel® will not be covered by most insurance.
Level of Discomfort:
Like most laser treatments, Fraxel® can be mildly painful, but numbing agents and pain relievers can assist considerably..
Also Known As:
