What Is Fraxel Laser

Recently my skin was looking a little worse for wear and in need of some serious maintenance. Not only did it look dull and tired but I was growing impatient with my enlarged pores because I couldn't seem to find a product that effectively worked to shrink them. The most bothersome thing I wanted to address were the tiny little lines I noticed creeping up on my forehead despite being just 28 years old.

Sometimes I feel like no matter how many products I use or facials I try, the complexion I see staring back at me in the mirror just isn't as vibrant or youthful as the one I want to see. To find out the easiest most effective way to turn my skin around, I reached out to RealSelf Contributor Dr. Michele Green. I wasn't surprised when the doctor immediately recommended a laser treatment, specifically Fraxel, because its versatility allows it to address all kinds of skin concerns.

Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and Chelsea Handler are all said to be fans. Thanks to them, lasers have now become more visible and buzzworthy.

If you're curious about whether or not lasers can give you a celebrity-grade complexion, you've come to the right place. Here's a guide to everything you need to know about the formerly taboo topic including my first-hand account of what it's like
