Fraxel Repair Side Effects

I had Fraxel Repair yesterday on my face. I am 40 and had the laser to diminish fine lines and sun spots from many years of sun abuse as a naive teenager.

I had 2 Vicodan and 1 Valium prior to the procedure, as well as numbing cream on my entire face and the top of my neck. My MD also administered a dental block prior to the procedure. It was very painful...almost to the point that I wanted to tell her to stop about halfway through.

I had a lot of swelling today (the day after) and my eyes were almost swollen shut. I am not having any weepy skin, but my skin feels like sandpaper and it feels like millions of fine grains of sand are all over.

Can't tell yet....too soon to know
