8 months ago
2nd profractional procedure with bbl. 1 yr apart. 1st time healed beautiful in 6 days, this time the PA went a little deeper & I have very large visible pinholes on my entire face, my skin looks healed but red, rougher and way worse than before procedure. I was not told my settings either time. I got it for acne scaring & want to know if these holes & redness the laser made are permanent scaring or will they go away? Ive been great with moisturization. Very depressed please help. Any advice?

The fact that the PA went a little deeper will definitely change the healing time. It is very normal to see the small pinholes. The red and rough texture is very typical after a Profractional treatment. It could take up 3 weeks for your skin to look and feel normal again.
