Today is the second day and I haven't taken a picture yet, but will update as the days go by. I had my entire face done including my eyes. The procedure itself was very painful even though I had the numbing cream and numerous injections. My face is very swollen. I have taken a week and a half off from work and I hope it's enough time!

If I hadn't seen the pictures on RealSelf of others who had had this procedure done I would have been really, really scared the first time I saw my face. I neglected to attach a before picture, which really doesn't show the issues that I was concerned about, but at least you can see I looked pretty normal before...lol...

Day 3 - the swelling is much worse than I thought it would be. I iced my face three times yesterday and once so far today. It feels very fat and tight.

Today is Monday, 1/16/12 and I saw my doctor today. He assured me that everything is the way that it should be - a big relief. I had a 20 minute LED light treatment which is supposed to help with healing and have additional LED appointments for Wednesday and Friday. I was told to continue the vinegar washes and Aquaphor but could switch to a lighter lotion if I wanted to. I want this to be over with!

Today is Wednesday, 1/18, 2012. I had the second LED light treatment today. The swelling has gone down slightly. I'm attaching a picture taken right after I got home from my doctor's office. Very slow progress...

Day 9, 1/20/12 - I had another LED light treatment today and am feeling so much better!I do have some 'break-outs' I am attributing to the Aquaphor but my doctor's office has emphasized that I don't want my skin to get dried out.

Tomorrow will be two weeks since I had the Fraxel Repair. My doctor says I will continue to notice improvements.

If I'm counting right (lol) I am 18 days post-Fraxel repair. I will change my rating to Worth It - it just keeps getting better and better.
