I had fraxel repair on Jan. 6. I was so excited and happy for 3 months. My skin looked great, pores were reduced, the lines were gone, and the skin under my eyes looked like I was 20 again. At the end of April it was like the life was sucked out of my face.
Everything went back to the way I looked before the laser with extras. I now have hollows under my eyes which I never had before. My cheeks just sunk, and I now have an 11 between my eyes. All the little lines around my month are back and every large pore has returned. I just knew it was too good to be true.
My doctor is now putting filler in the hollows and in my cheeks. He wants to redo the laser on the cheeks and around the mouth again. I wish I just had used the $4,500 on filler because I'm back to filler again. The laser redo will be free.
I had hoped the laser would buy me some time before I make a decision to do a facelift. Before you make a decision to laser do your research on all the results of those who are 4-5 months post laser.
