Glaich, Rahman, Goldberg, et al. ) Per report, only 7 patients were studied, but 6 of them had 51-75% improvement of hypopig. ; & one had a 25-50% improvement. So don't give up yet...

Don't make any decisions based solely on my results. Most of the people on here have seen some kind of positive result and almost no one is reporting any kind of new scarring. Why I have some new scarring is beyond me. I asked the RN who was doing my Fraxel why I have new scars and she had no answer for me so, I decided not to have my last two treatments. You might have great results! Good luck with what ever you decide to do!

hi cautiously, you weren't using any acidic topicals or retin-a/taz/etc in conjunction or along a similar time frame, were you?

This survey probably should have included questions about which Fraxel was used (1 or 2) and on what settings.

I had a lot of swelling and redness. whiteheads the day after treatment but that went away when the swelling went down. I have experience quite a bit of milia and some odd red bumps but I am using a few different topicals to adress these problems. Seems to be getting a little better.

8. Do you plan on getting more treatments if you're still not satisfied with the results?

i would love to have another round of treatments but I can't afford it right now. I think this would make me satisfied. The cost is what makes me not completely satisfied.

1. How old are you? Female/Male? 45 - Female

2. What kind of acne scarring do you have & where? - Rolling scars, temples, forehead and cheeks

3. How many treatments are you having in total? 5

4. Total price of your treatments? $4000

5. How many treatments have you had so far and what kind of improvement are you seeing? Had done 2 treatments so far (Palomar StarLux 1540 - equivalent to the Fraxel 2), so far not much improvement. Always feel pretty good until the swelling goes down and then back to full scars. Hoping to see some improvement after #3 and #4. Doing subcision 1 week prior to Fraxel #3 in one week and then subcision with fillers after #5

6. How far apart are you treatments? 4 weeks

7. Have you experienced any temporary/permanent side effects after the treatments?(ex.: breakouts, rocea, etc.) A few breakouts, but I know it's from the cleanser and the biafine that they have me using right after my treatment.

8. Do you plan on getting more treatments if you're still not satisfied with the results? I'm hoping the Fraxel will improve my skin's texture and the subcision and fillers will make the most improvement and I won't want to do any more treatments, but I'm sure I will want to - but can I afford it, probably not.
