Fine Lines - Pearl Fractional is Taking Forever to Heal on my Face

I am still red and blotchy. My skin areas that were lasered with the Pearl fractional are still rough like sand paper and very red. It will be 2 weeks on Monday the 22 of June when the procedure was done.

My skin was already good but I wanted to get rid of the fine lines. I am afraid that my skin will never get better. My skin is slightly olive on my face and even darker on my body. I am not happy about the way my face looks.

I have seen no positive results as yet and I'm not sure I would do this again.

No it is definitely more invasive especially for olive skin. If you had really light skin I would suggest it. For your acne you might want to try laser genesis or ipl. Pearl fractional will leave hyper pigmentation on olive skin that will never go away!

i thought pearl fractional was the one that is less invasive? i am asian and have some acne scarring that i want to lessen. so you are saying the pearl laser and NOT the fractional is the less invasive of the two?

Yes, because she was very knowledgeable and knew what she was doing. I just need to know the entire healing process. Not just the downtime...
