I do not recomend faxel. i had 2 sessions of it and i saw hardly any improvement. I just went to a new doctor and he is sugesting saline injections and subscision and this other treatment all combined. he wants to target each scar individually which I think is a great idea! anyways, I would suggest going to a diferent doctor. look for a clinic in your area that specializes in lasers or and acne scars. Dont go for fraxel. thats what my last doctor told me and he screwed me over. WASTE OF MONEY! get a second opinion. you want someone that knows what they are talking about. your doctor is lying to you if he says faxel is your only option. its just the only option HE can treat you with.

hope i helped.

Yea fraxel is not a magic bullet that cures everything. Though it is an expensive bullet, hence the reason why it is highly recommended by your derm. Not saying it doesnt help, but it is not the sole treatment out there.
