Like the Results So Far

I have had two Fraxel treatments so far, about six weeks apart. My skin definitely looks refreshed and I'm seeing fading of my acne scars on my cheeks. The scars around my chin are fading some, but less so. I'm starting to compliments like, "Did you do something to your hair?" :-)
I have to say the procedure did hurt. It's probably about like being waxed, but it goes on for 20 minutes. It hurts more around the lips, eyes and forehead. It's bearable, but just be prepared to 'suck it up.' The first two days after the procedure my face was swollen, then the next two days my face started to break out some and peel. My doc gave me some topical medication for the breakout, which helped. Icing, vinegar soaks and lots of moisturizer definitely helped. I looked sunburned for about two weeks afterwards.
I have another treatment coming. The doctor recommended five, but I may stop with three,for now. I wanted improvement, not perfection and I've definitely seen that.
