Itching and Tram Lines 3 Weeks After Smart Dot, How To Correct This?

Itchiness, lines, sandpaper texture after fractional resurfacing
This is not an easy question to answer without a bit more information. I am not sure if your first treatment was also done on the neck area. Perhaps you can gain some reassurance knowing that the dots you see are likely a good sign. The rate at which the skin cells turnover on the neck is slower than that on the face. What you are experiencing can be completely normal. I would not recommend a tca peel at this time. If you are the least bit concerned, call your doctor. Good luck!
