Fractional laser resurfacing

Fractional lasers treat a fraction of the skin at any time.

It is 2 days since I had Fraxel resurfacing and I am extremely swollen, red, bruised and hot. Am I having a bad reaction to this treatment?

Probably not, but you definitely should contact your treating physician and see him or her ASAP. One cannot reliably reassure you about this over the phone or via the Internet. If my patients call me about any concerns such as yours, I always recommend they come in right away so that I may evaluate them in person. This is the only way to know for sure. Good luck.
