Has anyone tried the home Philips Reaura Fraxel Laser?

I've read some reviews by middle-aged women saying it made the texture of their skin look SLIGHTLY better but nothing drastic, and it costs £800 which is a lot for something that might not work. Apparently it is like a mild version of the Fraxel they do in clinics.

I have got loads of small shallow scars all over my cheeks, when I tried self-needling a few years back it made them worse! I think because I have quite fine female skin I don't have the right skin-type for needling, so something gentler like Frazel might be a better idea for me. However at £600 per treatment in a clinic it's outside my price range if I was needing more than one clinic treatment.

Please advice, any experiences of Fraxel would be most appreciated.

Sorry if this topic has already been covered, I used to use this forum a lot years ago when there was a Search function, but there doesn't seem to be one now!

Never even heard of the at home fraxel so I cannot comment on that? I just had my 2nd fraxel treatment done which was a little over a month after my first. I'm still very red ect..way to early to speak about results. On the after care instructions it says it takes a good 4-6 months post your final treatment to see the full results for scars/wrinkles. As far as cost, maybe you could find a place that allows financing or credit? That is what I did. I could not afford to cover the costs all at once. I am using a credit service that works with the Derm office I got my treatments done at and you can make payments and pay it off gradually. So don't just get put off at the cost. Try and find a Doc who will work with you as far as payment pla, they are out there if you look.
