Redness in the first few days after treatment are a given and may persist for a few weeks or longer depending on the settings used.  This redness gradually fades with sun avoidance and daily sunscreen use.  Since significant risks are involved with the Pixel procedure and suboptimal results may be obtained in experienced hands, it should only be performed by board-certified dermatologists or plastic surgeons who are experienced with the procedure.  I recommend that you have an in-person evaluation with a physician to determine your best course of action and rule out possible scarring, which more commonly occurs along the jawline when too aggressive settings are used.  Good luck!
