  1. The thing is I only had one treatment of Fraxel restore. Hey Manu, so the redness disappeared after 6 months? What did you apply to sooth your skin at night?
  2. What happened? Isn’t redness from fraxel supposed to fade from 2- 4 weeks? So why is my fraxeled area still red? My scar is a bit unusual to begin with, it’s a scar on my scalp, but before I began with fraxel, my scar was white. I was only trying to diminish the appearance of the whitish scar, to make it blend in more with my scalp. So 7 months out from fraxel, shouldn’t the redness be gone by now? Will this be permanent? I’ll post some pictures later on but can someone tell me what th
  3. Need help for a fraxeled scar, I really need some other opinions. I have a scar on my scalp that I had one fraxel repair treatment on about 3 months ago. Till now, my scar is still red and doesn’t appear to be fading at all. I was told that redness lasts about 1-7 days after fraxel treatment so I don’t know whats going on. Before any fraxel, my scar was completely white. Can anybody recommend something else that I can try to reduce redness? Pictures: 2 months: http://www.acne.org/messageb
  4. How can you be sure that it will fade? From what I've read, heard, for a fraxeled area/scar to be red for this long is uncommon. Isn’t the downtime supposed to be 1 week for redness? When my doctor saw that my scar was still red at 7 weeks, she looked shocked and looked like she didn’t know what to tell me. From 2 months to 3 months, it doesn't seem like my fraxeled scar has faded at all. I hate to sound like a pessimist but I haven’t seen any improvement and I’m very worried. 2 mon
  5. Hi DDDRAM, metrogel topical or eucerin redness relief moisturizer.. do these temporarily make the redness go away or would it be a permanent change? I purposely have to grow my hair long to cover my scar, it's very annoying, I'm unable to cut my hair short because of this and now with it being red, its harder to conceal. Here's another picture 3 months from fraxel. It actually looks redder than at 2 months so I don't think the redness is fading at all. Before fraxel, my scar was white.
  6. thanks dddram, I called my doctor and the only thing she said was that the redness will last, she doesn't know how long my redness will last, at first she told me 3 weeks, than 7 weeks, when she realized that the area was still red, she just said that it wouldn't last...so I don't know what to believe. here are some pics, I would appreciate if anyone can suggest some sort of topical that I could apply to help with the redness http://www.acne.org/messageboard/uploads/1223083276/gallery_84531_8

  9. I have a scar on my head that I've been wanting to blend in better with the rest of my scalp, so I gave fraxel a shot 3 months ago. The temporary redness from fraxel that is supposed to go away after 2-3 days has stayed with me. My scar is still pinkish, and whenever I take a hot shower, my scar is even redder. What does this mean? Has anyone had permanent redness from fraxel? I thought the redness always disappeared and it's already been 3 months
  10. I have a strip scar on my head from a hair transplant surgery that I got done a couple years ago. The scar color is completely white. I was hoping to blend the scar in more with my surrounding skin with fraxel but my scar is now red. I’m 7 weeks post op from my first fraxel repair treatment and I don’t know what to make of this. I thought redness would last around 2-3 days from what my doctor told me. She told me eventually, the redness will fade but I don’t see any improvement in the col

  13. Hi guys, I'm really worried that my fraxeled scar will stay red.. My situation is a bit weird I have a strip scar on my scalp from a hair transplant surgery that I had done a few years ago. I wanted to do fraxel repair on the scar to try and diminish the appearance of it... but now its completely red.. Before the fraxel, my scar was completely white. Can anyone recommend any sort of topicals that I can use to help diminish the redness? My doctor keeps telling me that the redness will not l
  14. I had my first fraxel treatment done on a scar I have about 3 weeks ago. My scar itself is about 2 years old and the color was white before I began treatment. Now, 3 weeks later, my scar is still red and pinkish and I'm really scared if this color will be permanent. If so, I'm worse off than when I was before fraxel. I've been trying to avoid the sun and have been using aquaphor to assist in the healing but I don't see much improvement.. I thought that redness would only last for 2-3 days.
