I am into m fourth day of recovery. My face is still swollen, brown and red. I just started skin shedding yesterday. I had both my entire Face and neck treated.
I was given general anesthesia for the procedure which lasted well over an hour. Most of my pain occurred on the first day. My skin felt very hot and sensitive to touch for at least three days. Swelling was very apparent on the second day. I kept cold compresses on and stayed away from caffeine to keep the swelling at a minimum.
I cant shave for at least six days. This makes it difficult to wash properly as the Aquaphor petroleum product just sits on the beard.
I have been taking lots of vitamin C, Collagen Tablets and whey Protein drinks.
I feel a lot better today and hopefully I will see improvement soon. I expect to go to work next Thursday. I still have the brown grid marks on most of my face and neck however I noticed that I am slowly loosing old skin each time I wash. I will update this everyday and will provide pictures.
