I have absolutely no results. I have been using Elta Lite per my plastic surgeons recommendation. Should I be seeing some results? I know I'm fully healed, slight redness and very minimal drying.
I Had Fractional Laser Resurfacing Two Weeks Ago to Minimize my Smile Lines and Lip Lines. No Results? (photo)

Multiple treatments needed
Fractional laser is just as the name sounds "fractional" means its only treating a fraction (anywhere from 11-30%) of the skin surface in a single treatment, that is why the fractional laser is done in a series of treatments spaced 4-6weeks apart depending on depth of treatment. I tell most pt's to not expect improvment until the 3-4th treatment, collegen can be stimulated for up to 6 months after each treatment. This laser is not for those looking for a "quick" fix, and if you were healed in 2 weeks it doesnt sound like you had that deep of a laser, deeper wrinkle lines around the mouth take a much more aggressive treatment.
Hope this helps!
