  1. hi guys...I am having the Fractional CO2 laser done next Tuesday and when I asked the doctor which laser is was...ie: deepfx, totalfx, ect...She said it was the brand new one - MIX20. Anyone else heard of this one? She said the results are incredible and it's non-ablative.
  2. I'm still new at figuring out all the laser stuff but I'm guessing what this girl had done is the CO2 fractional laser...a combination of Fraxel but with better results. Also, the CO2 Fractional laser is NON-ABLATIVE. I made sure before I decided to do it. I haven't done yet...I'll do it this next Tuesday but I made sure that it was non-ablative and there is no ozzing or crusting involved. A big plus since you definitely don't want to run the risk of more scarring! hope this helps a little! Go
  3. hey! I'm in the same boat you are. Trying to figure this out. I finally decided that since I have a Spring Break I really need to get something done since my scars bother me. So I'm going in next Tuesday for CO2 fractional laser. I'm nervous and excited and have the same questions you do...wondering how long my face will be red and obvious is it. Hopefully someone who's had it done will answer your questions.... I'll be sure to let you know my experience when I'm done with it. Hopefully that w

  5. hi! thanks so much for posting your experience! I was going to have Fraxel done but my esthitician said that she thought it was ridiculous to pay that kind of money for so many treatments and not to get great results. She said she's been doing lots of research and they are bringing in the CO2 fractional laser. She told me that was the best thing for my scars which are shallow but all over my cheeks. I had no idea what to expect with this laser but thanks to you I have somewhat of an idea. Quick
  6. Just wanted to tell you that I looked through your fraxel treatment pictures and you look great! Especially for just having the fraxel done. Seriously, I'm a girl and I wouldn't even notice the redness, it's faint. I'm kind of nervous because I'm having my first Fraxel treatment done next Monday for shallow scarring all over my cheeks. Your pics encouraged me that it won't be that bad! All that to say, I just want to encourage you not to worry about it. Know that no ones is looking at your scars
  7. Your downtime depends on how high of settings your doctor uses--the higher the setting, the longer the recovery. Although in my case, I didn't think recovery is that bad. You should get it done on a Friday so you have the weekend to reover. Also, some people take longer to recover than others. The redness gets better as each day goes on along with the swelling. I usually get it done on a Friday and by Tuesday I go back to work. I look red, but it's like a sun burn red. (Not too bad.) It's the pe
  8. Hi....I have a question for anyone and everyone who has had Fraxel laser done. I have mild scarring all over my cheeks but since I have oily skin it tends to be more obvious throughout the day. I am getting my first Fraxel treatment done and I have to admit I am really nervous. Mainly because I don't know how it will look. I have taken off almost a week for recovery but I'm just wondering how bad you really look during those days after treatment. Also, how long did it take before you felt comple
  9. First of all, PLEASE don't be afraid to look at people in the eye! I have struggled with acne for years, sometimes more so than others. But I finally realized that others aren't as distracted by my acne if I'm not acting awkward and uncomfortable. I know that for me personally as long as someone is outgoing, looking at me in the eye, and able to easily carry on a conversation, I could care less whether or not they have acne. So, don't be afraid to look people in the eye as hard as it may be some
