I had the Fraxel Repair done at the end of February and everyone in the office kept telling me that the more heat the doctor uses when doing the surgery the better the outcome. Unfortunately I had extreme pain when the doctor was doing it and I could not stand the pain at all let alone the heat. It felt like he was scraping my skin off my face. I was told that there is a very very low percentage of people who feel pain at all, all they feel is heat. So try not to be to alarmed by this. I would understand if I had been taking pain meds and my body got accustomed to the meds but I had stopped all medication 2 weeks prior to my surgery. Like I said this is unusual.
I am 6 weeks out of my surgery and I can say for the first week my skin was very red and towards the end of the week it got extremely itchy from the healing process. I hadnt noticed anything at all prior to the 6 weeks and was devestated but now I am beginning to notice small changes so give it time.
My doctor has offered (for free) to go over a small section of my face that he feels was not attented to much because I was in pain. I have to wait the full 6 months before he will address that area again. So far so good tho.
