I recently had a series of Fraxel treatments for my acne scarring of my face done by Dr. Snyder at the Dermatology Laser Center.I had been ashamed of for many years since my teenage. Years ago, I had received two dermabrasion procedures in a different state by another doctor, but still was not satisfied with the scarring that had remained. Fortunately I was refered to Dr. Steven Snyder due to what I heard from my best friend who also had received a Fraxel series of treatments from Dr. Snyder and was very happy.I had considered a differnt resurfacing laser procedure as well, but Dr. Snyder was very comforting in explaining that a series of Fraxel treatments could be done without any IV sedation with very significant results achievable and very comfortably. All I needed was a topical anestetic which was left on around 45 minutes before my procedure. It was very tolerable and I felt at ease throughout the procedure due to Dr. Snyder's knowledge and expert care as he treated me. He was very informative before the procedure and during it. At the end, after about 30 minutes, I was given a complimentary Gentlewaves procedure for additional benefit and only had minimal pinkness to my face. Like I was explained, I was able to return to work that same day with some very mild swelling that subsided over the next few days. I had a series of these treatments every few weeks and after each treatment I kept seeing continued improvement of my acne scars. Not only that, but there was an added benefit of removing some wrinkles and even improving the overall texture in my skin. Many friends and family members tell me how much younger I look. Being in my fifties, it is great to hear I am looking 10 years younger. I have received a total of 5 Fraxel treatments and I am amazed at how great my results are, even better than I was told were possible. Thanks, to Dr. Snyder for my great results. I also liked how nice the staff members are, very professional office!
Pros: Dr. was very imformative and spent a long time answering all my questions
