Rosyface and AnniefromMiami,
Just wondering how you're liking the results from your Fraxel treatments.

Sorry for the late reply. I just had my 3rd Fraxel yesterday on 3-19-06. I can honestly say, I'm very happy. My skin tone has improved, the texture has improved, some smaller scars are disappearing and the larger scars are softening and becoming less deep. My skin in general is much healthier. I barely break out and I've gotten compliments about how it's looking smoother all round.

One particular compliment came from my Esthetician who hadn't seen me since I began the treatments and did not KNOW!! She saw me about 7 months ago and when she saw me again a few weeks ago - she had a million questions for me. SHE saw a huge difference in my skin. Now since she loves to sell me crap and services, this time she didn't even try. She wanted to know what had I been doing because she could tell I was up to something. She inspected each area and said the same things I have mentioned (better texture, less scars, even tone etc..). Coming from her, I'm totally convinced that Fraxel really is working for me. She didn't know about my treatments so I feel like I got a totally unbiased opinion. I'm happy. Now I've got 2 more treatments to go through. You aren't supposed to see real results until after the 3rd but I'm damn happy with what I've seen so far....

I have an album on this site and a more detailed album up here:

I have since added some more current AFTERS photos in my album on PictureTrail. Ughhh and without makeup. You can find them in the Right and Left Albums, right to the bottom. I see a major difference in my skin. In fact just now, I just noticed a crater in the center of my cheek, in the Right cheek album, that really isn't there that much anymore.

Decide for yourself but I will say choosing Fraxel and doign higher levels, was the best thing I have ever done. I look like crap for a few days but the results are absoulutely worth it. When I see these pictures and I look at the beginning, then to the end - I'm surprised. Pleasantly. :D

YUP :D I've done 3 Fraxels and the levels were between 14 to 20. I have 2 Fraxels left and a sneaky suspicion I'm going to add a few more if I get a good price. I would rather invest the money I have saved into Fraxel treatments than spend it on any other treatment out there right now.

I scheduled my next Fraxel for 8-29-06. I have requested Numbing injection in addition to the blue mask and numbing creme and one percocet I take. I am going all out with these last two treatments. I want at the very least power level 25. I will also get the blue dye up to the lower lash line and get them to use the new smaller undereye tip. I usually wait a month to a month 1/2 between treatments. This time it was 3 months but it was the best I could do. I like waiting and letting the collagen plump up for a month and then building on top of that again.

I am very happy.
