Thought I would put in my two cents. I have sensitive skin and tend to scar easily. Skin needling actually made some of my scarring worse. I received Fraxel repair on stretch marks on a more sensitive area of my body and noticed a difference in skin texture. I've heard that some lasers can cause loss of skin elasticity and accelerated aging, and suspect this may be the case for me. I know the skin in that area is more delicate than the face, but I still would never get Fraxel repair for my face.

I think that's true, Starlite. I have also had several doctors tell me that the skin on women is thinner and more sensitive/harder to heal than the skin on men. My doc almost never recommends the Repair for his women patients. I think it's something to take note of when men vs. women discuss their results with laser.

I had boxcar and rolling, but no icepick.


Dudley what type of scars did you have? Did any ice picks respond to repair? Also, why'd you stop in Nov. 2011?



Hi Dudley, what responded better to the laser? Was it the boxcars or the rolling? Also we're there areas of the face that responded better or worse such as the cheeks or the temples?

Rolling and boxcar responded about equal. The areas supported by bone respond the best.

Hmm, out of curiosity. Does demarcation lines emerge often after fraxel re:pair? The scars on my cheek are actually very focused in a tight area and feathers off outwards; the skin along my jawline is actually perfectly fine and I do not want to risk toppling the equilibrium there.

 

My skin has rebounded from many harsh treatments, but I'd rather not abuse perfectly fine skin at this point. Opinions, experiences?

NUman, I had demarcation lines after my 2nd Re:pair, but they quickly faded away.

personally i'd never let a laser anywhere near my healthy un-scarred skin. i see absolutely no need for it.

Updated first post with FourMurasame's gallery. I thought it is an interesting post in itself.
