Had Lumenis fractional co2 laser performed on Ja. 8, 2011. I have melasma on my upper lip and cheeks. I was at an oral surgeon appointment, when his nurse noticed my brown spots. I researched and decided to have him do the co2 laser resurfacing after three consults with him. I was assured it was safe with 5-7 days of down time.
I followed the post procedure instructions religiously, and didn't notice any bad results until after two weeks. I have horrible hyperpigmentation around my mouth, and my melasma is worse. Be sure to have many consults before having this done and if you have sensitive skin, I wouldn't recommend it. I am now thinking of having a Jessner's peel, but I'm so scared of having worse hyperpigmentation than I do now!
