Fractional 1540-Worth the Wait - New Hope, PA
Okay so the fine lines and crepiness I was...
After the procedure they told me to ice and take a benadryl before bed. The next day I was a little bit swollen (which I don't mind) and very pink and sensitive. Thankfully, I worked from home that day. The next day, Thursday, I went into work and wore glasses and tried covering it with concealer. I thought I did a good job but my boss asked what happened to my eyes. I came out and just told her. By Friday evening I felt comfortable going out and actually rather enjoyed the minor swelling which eliminated my annoying under eye hollows. 17 days had gone by and I was healing nicely. The redness was fading daily. I ended up going for my monthy micordermabrasion and the redness and sensitivity flared up and became broze in color (and was almost worse) wi after that treatment. It took about 3-4 more weeks before it resolved 100%.
However, I looked in the mirror over the past week (it's been 8 weeks) and I thought "Hmmm I look more like how I feel. Not so haggard and my dark circles and fine lines are just about all but gone. " Basically, I am very happy with the results. I wish I had known not to get a microderm and treat the area much more gently over the next month. I think my skin around the eyes raised the white flag after the microderm.
I think I would do this annually and plan it right before a long weekend so my boss would nto ask any questions but overall, I give this treatment a big thumbs up for an area that is historically (as I've been told by many a doctor) very tough to treat.
This is going to be in the annual arsenal of treatments for undereye crepiness and fine lines.
One thing I would love though, is if my spa came out with the intraoccular (sp) eye covers so they could go right up to the lash line.
I wanted to wait before I wrote a thumbs up and saw the results. I was told to be patient. If I had done my review a month ago I would have given it a thumbs down or not sure. I patiently waited. reassured that it would eventually fade and to convince myslef to be patient. Just treat your skin very gently up to 6 weeks after treatment. Well worth it and I adore my doctor and her team!!!!
An amazing bedside manner and keen eye for how to look your best without making you look overdone.
