MicroLaser Peel & ProFractional Laser - Anderson, SC

Ouch... Just had the MicroLaser Peel &...

Ouch... Just had the MicroLaser Peel & ProFractional Laser done today. Let me tell you this, it hurt (certain areas) very very much! Will post updates as I have them. It is 6 hours past my procedure and my face is stingy, like a minor/medium burning sensation.
Let e say though in that my face looks worse in person than what the pictures show.

Healing Super Fast! 26 1/2 Post Procedure....

Amazed how fast it is healing! Super excited and anxious! Lets hope all turns out well...

Day 2

Face itches but healing really well

Day 3

Still red and 'scabby' but looking good. I am breaking out because of the Aquaphor, but I am not gonna complain because:
Not since I was a teenager have my pores looked this good!!! Still early, but I am getting so excited! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU Dr. Daws and your awesome staff!
On this day I don't believe I could be happier [except maybe if the 'healing process' was over :) ]!!!!

Will update

Will post an update soon....

WebCam Pic Update

Okay, so very sorry for the lack of updates!
It has been over 2 months since the procedure and I still can see grid marks on different parts of my face. Dr. Daws informed me that these 'marks' mean that I am still healing/repairing.
DO I SEE A DIFFERENCE??? I definitely do! My face still isn't perfect, BUT the size of my scarred/enlarged pores has shrunk, and I believe my skin looks fresher, if that makes any sense :).
I believe that if I have this done atleast 1 more time (OUCH!!!) I will see an even bigger difference.
But as it is now:
I wear less makeup
I am breaking out ALOT less
I actually go out without makeup on (never did before)
I feel slightly more comfortable in my skin :)

So the million dollar question: Was it worth doing? ..................YES
The pics I am posting are off my webcam (sorry for the quality)
Georgia General Surgeon

Excellent Doctor & The Kindest, Most Courteous Staff!! Made me feel so comfortable. Thank You Dr. Daws and your wonderful Co-Workers!

Hi this is WynneB who has done Profractional twice. You should be ok, if your laser is not super deep. My first procedure I was work ready in 5 days, my second procedure was much deeper and really needed a full week, but I did return to work by then, and used mineral makeup to look ok. I'm 9 months out of 2nd procedure and skin is great. Plus use Obagi 6 step, which makes big dif. Where you getting it done and how $? Best wishes!

To have micorlaserpeel and fractional resurfacing is $1000 for combo in Missoula at Northwest Plastic Surgery. I'm going to try to schedule for March 24 and return to work the following Mon. How far apart were your 2 procedures? I would like to have deep resurfacing but I can't take a full 2 weeks off. I hope I get the results I want. Thank you!

Oh, you having 2 procedures in one. Well, not sure about that down time. What does your provider say? I did both my procedures in Denver at the Happy Clinic. For just face $500 Profractional. For face and neck, they had a laser special $650. My procedures were about 1 year apart. Please allow 4-6 months for the true effect of this to come through, it takes a whole for your collagen to react, and when it does, boy, you will LOVE it!! Do a post of it. I found your other posts.

Thank you! My provider says one week us fine for healing. It's micro not deep. She showed me her own personal pics and it looks manageable. I scheduled today for March 24th. I'm excited except she said no exercise for at least 5 days. I hate that part. Guess it's time for spring cleaning!

My face looks fantastic already. Well I go for my second round of laser next week. I go to Georgia dermatology in Cumming, Ga. I never really had grid lines. It hurts, but the results are lovely.

How far are you spacing your treatments?

I had the micro laser peel and the pro-fractional together and love the results. Downtime was 5 days.

It is recommended 6 weeks between treatments for maximum results. I had this done 4 years ago and was in college. I spaced them 4 months apart and still had great results. It depends on your skin condition. I also do honey & cacao facials at home weekly for moisture and cleaning out free radicals from neck and face. During the week I wash my face with Epsom salt & fresh lemon for the micro dermabrasion and rid of brown spots.

Thanks for posting and sharing . I'm having it done in January . Do you know how deep he went on the Pro Fractional ? I think I'm having 80 microns. I just had the micro laser peel it was 8 . Needless to say I'm a little nervous.
