I Had One Full a Year Ago and a Touch-up Last Week - Hollywood, FL

I knew what to expect the second time, it was bearable with the numbing cream put on 1.5 hours ahead of time.
Took 20 mins maybe to treat me, the Dr is wonderful.

I did it to remove wrinkles and brown sun spots and do not want a facelift yet....
Healing is ok stay in 4-5 days put ice water on to 2 days and whole fat milk for 2 days.
I will be red for a few weeks but make-up will cover it but its worth it!......I will feel my skin tighten over 6 months exxcept for my neck I do not look my age, I need that next....

You look fabulous. But what type of laser did you have done? There are so many. It appears to be one of the Co2 lasers. How are you doing now? It sure seems well worth the healing time.

how long did your results last? I've several say after laser they loved the swelling look because it filled in lines/wrinkles but were disappointed weeks later when it all set in.

I heard that these lasers lose effectiveness over time. I am 40, had it done 3 times, and the last time, I saw no improvement in my skin tightness at all. I have been looking for a laser that would not lose effectiveness over time. Do you know the name of the laser you used?

I had a good report today, I got the answer to my question but am not able to explain it myself to you I asked Dr L to reply to it if she had time. My next appointment is in 3 weeks and I will have my photos taken at the time to compare all of them.

Hi, she was very agressive, i would say down for 4-5 days then red for a couple of weeks, results incredible I am so happy wiht it although I am now considering a facelift and eyes I have staved it off am 62 now.....but my skin is very very good compared to mother and sister the colagen stimulated in my cheeks was amazing!.....
I did have 5-6 treatments wiht another drmatologise 3 years ago no discomfort no results and a total waste of $2000.00

Hi Britt,
I assume its the fat content in the milk that your skin needs.....
but I am not the Doctor I will ask tomorrow on my follow-up.

Hi Miami6196, 

Welcome to the community. I'm glad you were prepared and you had numbing cream put on, that probably helped a lot. You put whole milk on your face? Wow I have never heard of that. Why do they have you do that? Please keep us updated and thanks so much for the pictures.
