Questions that I have regarding Fraxel... in Scar treatments Posted December 29, 2007 After reviewing the many scar treatment options, I feel Fraxel is my best option. I have some minor/moderate rolling scars and I hear Fraxel can be quite effective for this type of scarring.I did go to an consultation back in August but upon examening further issues, I have a few worries that weren't present when I went to the consulation.. I am thinking about calling to make an appointment but I wanted to gain some feedback from the quality members of this board.I have a few questions to the people who have had Fraxel before:1) I do remember the Dr. saying there are risks associated with Fraxel as their is with any medical procedure. He mentioned some rare problems are patchiness of the hair growth on the face, discoloring parts of the face (pigmentation) What are the other risks with Fraxel and how rare are they?? Has anyone had any problems after getting Fraxel done and if so, how severe?2) My face is pretty clear right now. I would say its been a good 5 years since I have had moderate active acne. THe last few years has been more or less some minor pimples here and there. ALthough, the moderate/severe acne that I had back when I was 14/15 has left the scarring I am looking to improve right now. WHat are the chances that Fraxel could cause me to breakout in active acne after the procedure, is this common? This would really bother me as it would most likely cancel any benefit I obtain from the procedure I feel. Is it common to suffer acne that you wouldn't have experienced if you didnt proceed with Fraxel? 3) I have an extremely oily face. The dr. said that not only does Fraxel improve scarring, it will reduce the activity of my sebacious glands and as a result, wont have as much oil on my face. If this infact true, it would be a huge positive for me to proceed with Fraxel as the oily complexion does bother me. Although, I dont know if the Doc was saying this to appease me. Anyone have any info to share regarding this issue?4) What the regime/routine after getting a Fraxel done? I can definitly follow the Dr's instructions immediately after the procedure (3-4days) but my life is going to be extremely busy and dont want to be going through a routine (applications of creams) weeks after the procedure.If I do have any questions, I will make sure to list them in this thread. I appreciate anyone who take the time to answer a anxious young man's worries.THanks!!
