26 Years of age. Pigmentation problems, redness, pitted skin, large pores. People have to be so careful when getting the Fraxel Restore treatment done. Factors and most important points to consider:

1) Who is doing your treatment for you ? Only let a Dermatologist touch your face. You only have one face,

2) What skin type are you ? If you have dark skin / or dark eyes and dark hair ... first do a test patch. I am white (Caucasian), but have dark brown eyes and dark hair. I am at higher risk of hyperpigmentation than a fair skinned person. If no hyperpigmentation occurs with the test patch (after 4 weeks), proceed with 1st treatment on forehead only. Do test patch under fringe or on the side of your face. Thereafter, do the entire face. Well, this is the way I would / plan to do it ...

3) Wear sunblock !!! A HIGH factor sunblock. Wear it at all times. In the house and outside the house. Dodge the sun at all times. Fraxel Restore for texture, wrinkles etc. Fraxel Thulium for pigmentation. Thulium laser requires longer recovery time and skin actually goes very dark brown before it peels off.

Do research on the Internet ! Phone different clinics. Don't settle for specials. The Fraxel Restore does work. Don't know too much about Thulium ... don't want to comment too much on that ...

So far, I'm happy ...
