I really am not much of a writer but I wanted to say that Iw as terrified of getting this done and it WAS painful (even with the topical numbing agent) but the down time was fairly minimal (4 days) and the results have been GREAT! I will be 40 this summer and it will be a week tomorrow since I had it done and I know I am still not finished healing (still a bit itchy and pink) but I can already tell the resurfacing is pretty drastic. My husband, who was fairly against me doing it (because he didn't think I needed it) said my skin looks great. My procedure included a SkinMedica recovery kit with full size products: Restorative ointment, Ceramide Cream, Gentle Cleanser and SPF 30 Moisturizer. The puffiness bothered me more than the pain did. I had to call and get a steroid for that and some weird hive-y things that started coming up on my neck and chest. I don't know if that helped the swelling go down faster than normal but I was grateful to have it! And the flakiness and grittiness went away on my face faster than on my neck (which is still itchy almost a week tomorrow). I hope this review was as helpful as others have been to me.
