Fraxel restore on part of my face (the part just to the side of my nose) to generate collogen around a scar from a previous laser procedure to remove wart.

The doctor ran the laser 8 or 9 times across the area (area just to the side of nose), this was a restore laser and i thought it was suppose to be gentle.

It is 5 weeks out and i am still red/bronze glow in color. The doc said it will take time and i ware sun block to prevent damage.

How long of a recovery time have you ever heard of from something like this. Area still itches and burns and i am worried about scarring and discoloration.

Redness and discoloration went away at about the 1 year mark. Improvements such as minimization of scar and development of collogen in the area still continued for about 7 to 8 months after that. I think there are newer and better lasers on the market that might be better to use for this application. (discuss all options with him before treatment)
