Its been 7 days since my fraxel restore treatment. I went through the expected peeling but a new side effect that I had not heard of. I have developed severe numbness on several locations on my face: my forehead, around eyes and jaws. I noticed it when I had the sensation that my faced itched--when I scratched it I realized it is totally numb. Is this normal? How long until it goes away?
