After getting my "Feeling Good" Tummy trimmed, My surgeon took one look at me and said Pixel would work. I was a bit afraid because of my skin color. We tend to hyperpigmentate and if you tap my arm to hard, I bruise! .. What I am thinking is a Risk, my Surgeon whom I trust to the 1000's told me that I'd be just fine.
Well today is Day 2. I took pics of my face or forehead 2 hours after laser. I Looked like a Carmel Skined woman with a Sun Tan (with the red undertones) Today well, the "Rail road" tracks from the laser are EVERYWHERE but you can tell that it's dead skin. I was advise to use Aquaphore to keep my face hydrated and my Doc prescribed me an ointment just in case i was overly irritated. The only time I had the heat experience was right after the laser was over. I had small ice packs to soothe my skin but was sent home with aquaphore on and I was just fine. By the time I got home, I was no longer burning. But I did have a Sunburned looking/ Glowing (from the Aquaphore ointment) face.
I haven't experienced CONS just yet but I'm anxious to resume my daily activities outside of the house. With a Railroad looking face full of dry skin, you do NOT want to leave so the Wait can be time consuming.
