    Default Fraxel restore

    Hi there,

    I am planning to have Fraxel restore againt my many big pores and acne scars. Especiall around the nose and cheeks.

    Do anyone knows if Fraxel can give you worse rosacea? I dont knoe if i have rosacea but I have sensitiv skin and get red easy. I also have enlarge pores and enlarge glands.

    I think Fraxel sounds great for treating acne scars and strukures in the skin, the downtime is only one week also.

    Please give me some advice!

    Fraxel is one of those lasers that is not recommended for those with rosacea. I will see if there is any old threads I can find

    We have a few threads that mention fraxel but nothing much. I did find these threads, some of which seem to indicate that it may make redness worse:

    Don't know much about it...doesn't sound like it would help rosacea....did the doc say it would?

    Also, if you do undergo this please post your experience.
