Fraxel 1540 XD - Mild to Moderate Acne Scarring- Lehigh Valley, PA
I am a 27 year old Caucasian female with light...
Afterwards, I did not look as bad as I felt or thought I would I looked sunburnt, but that’s about it. I even went to grab a bite to eat afterwards. I iced my face every hour for about 10 minutes that night. In the morning, I actually looked fine! My face wasn’t even red. I had tiny little etch marks from the laser, but I don’t think anyone would notice but me or if they were staring right at it. I was fine to be in public.
Yesterday and today my face looks the same. Still no swelling or added redness. I think the etch laser marks are a bit more prominent, they just look brown. It looks like very mild brush burn. For some reason, it’s mainly on my chin, my cheeks are fine. I was able to go to the gym yesterday, sweating didn’t bother me at all. I am at work today and no one noticed a thing. I still didn’t put makeup on, because I feel like it would look worse than slight brush burn. I broke out very slightly on my chin – just minor, very tiny bumps/whiteheads that I gently brushed to remove. Nothing upsetting!
I will keep everyone updated on my progress within the next month or so. I know that it takes 6 weeks to start seeing improvement and can continue seeing improvement for like 6 months. I have a follow-up with my doctor this Friday.
PS – I am not sure how many treatments I will need. My doctor originally said 1-3 because he thinks I will see pretty good improvement from only one. He wants me to wait a while before scheduling another treatment.
