I got suckered into that Fraxel Laser junk machine. I went thru so much pain twice and they charged me 1,000 a session. Trust me, it was very painful. They promised it would tighten my skin and get rid of the fine lines. After the procedures my skin was so swollen it tightened. That was the only tightening it did. Once the swelling went down I had more wrinkles and looser skin. I called and complained to them and they said I needed at least 6 sessions. That is $6,000.00 They know exactly how to cover themselves! Scam artists. This is a very well known place in Winter Park fl.
Glad I stopped at $2,000.00 What a rip off. That machine is a scam.
I was looking into that LSL. But was waiting for a thread like this....thanx for posting this. You saved alot of us from not only pain and suffering but our hard earned money from being throw away!

People who are suckered into surgery - or anything else - because of ads on television are likely to be disappointed. It seems clear from the answers that reality bears this out.

And don't lash out at me because I didn't have the procedure done. I decided against it, and for the reasons stated earlier in this thread.

You are smart to have asked the question. Sorry you're not getting the answers you wanted. Reality can be disappointing.

I had it & am suffering horrible pain almost 3 yrs later. They don't say where they will cut, what they will do, etc. I was messed up& know many others that were too. Just ck out your doc w/ abps,ama, bbb.your state medical licensing dept. They are all available to the public. Please be careful. Their ads don't always deliver what the promise & sometimes give you maajor scars& horrific pain. Not all LSL docs are that way, but alot are. Check them out!!

A year?? Try 5-6 months.I wished i never fell for their lies& decietfulness.

Angry Oh really?

I had a Lifetyle lift procedure done on face and neck...in the San Mateo Ca. location. It looked great the first three months but after the swelling went down, there is a big scare under my jaw which can clearly be seen.

The left side of my face is saggy and my marionette line is more pronounced because the right side of my face looks wonderful.

I went back to the office and actually showed them the results. They told me that they could fix it but would be another $2,500.00 on top of the $5,000.00 I already spent.

I can't afford it and so now I am FUGLY in Nor Cal and am certainly not a happy camper. I would not recommend this procedure without actually seeing aa few LIVE results and not "Photo-shopped" ones. .
