I am almost 6 months out and I still have the discoloration, streeks and honey comb appearance covering a large portion of my face.
I am 38 and looked fairly young for my age pre-procedure. I have always taken great care of my skin. I now look 5-10yrs older, like I have spent a lifetime in the sun. I had absolutely no visible sun spots or discoloration before the procedure. My MD has me on a regimen of Retin A and Obaji blender, not effective. I have had multiple follow up tx with the Fotofacial, not effective.
Please consider this procedure very carefully esp. if using for fine lines or pores. It is definitely not worth the risk.
Yes for cosmetic surgery as he has an excellent reputation. No for any laser tx. I was treated by a new PA and was not given the waiver preprocedure, therefore, completely unaware that this was a possible complication.
