Treatment has many benefits, but was very painful. My reason was to rid myself of the sun damage spots on my face, described as melasma by my doctor, which were continuing to get worse every year. I use SPF 60 daily, but am very active outside year round.
If it works, it was worth it, however unless they give me something more for the pain of the procedure I won't be returning for a second follow up.
I recently had profractional laser treatment on my face for melasma and am wondering at what point can I return to my regular outdoor activities of cycling, running, and boot camp, etc? My treatment was 5 days ago and I am still applying vaseline and antibiotic ointment 2x per day.
My Doctor: name not provided
Yes and no..it was very painful and I don't feel I was told how uncomfortable, etc. it would be in order to prepare my self. Also, the post treatment recovery time was bery unclear.
