I was scared to death after watching the videos of the proceedure on utube. I prepared myself with lanacain all over face for half hour before treatment and 2 xanax that I usually take before a flight. My Dr. explained with my skin tone ect... she would go light to moderate depending on the skin damage.
Proceedure lasted about a half hr. I was totally relaxed and felt little pain towards the end when Laser was turned up and hitting the sides of my face. I went home, put cold washclothes (with a little viniger) on my burned skin and slept for 4 hrs(thanks to xanax) and woke up feeling "this is the worst of it?" Slept fine that night with Aquafore on face and cold washclothes and a fan. I was prepared with tylenol for pain and never used it. AND I HATE PAIN! Would totally do it agsin and recomend it. Im swollen today and scabbing over. the usual.
