With a 35th birthday approaching, I was starting to take a closer look at my face and skin and wondering why I just didn't wear more sunscreen and use more moisturizer when I was younger. I was seeing dark brown sun spots, red spots under my skin, larger pores, and fine lines. I figured there was nothing I could do about it now. But after talking to Dr. Rostan, I took her suggestion to have a Fraxel Re:Store Dual. It's the best pre-35th birthday gift I could have ever given myself! First, they numb your face with cream and you sit and relax for about an hour. I was apprehensive about having a numb face, but it was easier than any dentist office visit. The procedure itself wasn't painful, just a bit uncomfortable at times - but I was done in about 45 minutes. After the procedure, my face was red and felt like I had sunburn, but that feeling went away in about 3 hours. For the next 4 days, I kept my face clean and covered it in lotion. Although my face looked "bronzed", no one said a word to me about it. In amazement, I watched as all of the pigmentation from under my skin came up to the surface and eventually washed away. I am thrilled with the results and can't stop telling my friends about it.
