I spent $600 for my face, and another $600 for my chest. Normal price is $1000 per location.
Pro - one treatment and you are done (unlike fraxel, which needs 4)
Pro - I can definitely see smoother skin one week later
Con - you are truly "down" for 4 or more days, soaking skin in vinegar every 2-3 hours.
Con - while my face peeled on day 4 and 5, as doctor estimated, my chest took a few days longer (also as my doctor estimated)
**If you do your chest, plan on wearing an accomodating shirt so you can continue applying aquafor until you are done peeling.
**You can not do the vinegar soak too much. I used a big stainless steel mixing bowl, added ice to my vinegar and water. It felt great to apply ice-cold water.
STAY OUT of the sun, close the curtains/blinds.
I have done a procedure before where they told me to use aquafor and stay out of the sun... I did not follow their advice back then and had INTENSE pain.
This time, I followed every bit of advice, and am very happy with the low level of pain and the great results.
**One tip I wish I had done. They said to get soft wash cloths. I bought some from the bed and bath aisle. I should have gone to the baby aisle. Next time, I'll do that.
