Just had my first treatment this morning for Acne scarring. I have had this for a long time (10 + years) and although it will be expensive ($1,200) per session, it sounds like it is worth it. More to come on the longer term results, but I was able to go to work an hour after treatment.
The procedure was relatively painful, but I didn't have any painkillers or numbing agents. The swelling is mild, redness is average to light average (but uniform). My skin does feel dry, although NYC today feels completely dry anyway. The doctor didn't give any specific treatment instructions, so all seems OK so far (and hopefully will stay this way).
So, I can't comment on results as of yet (but will in a week or so), but I am back at work after an hour (10 minute icing and some gel). Hopefully someone finds this useful.
