I'm in my mid 40's, have fair skin, love the outdoors, and have a history of mild acne. I went to Dr. Gilman hoping to minimize fine lines, acne scarring, sun spots, and overall tone of skin.
During my consultation, she spent time explaining how and why my skin and face had changed over the years and recommended Fraxel dual laser treatments.
I did some research and decided to go for it….
The first hour of the treatment was numbing, the procedure lasts about 45 mins and doesn't hurt but feels tingly. For about a day or two afterwards, my face felt flushed, hot, like I had a sunburn.
For the next few days my skin started to turn brown, felt very dry, "sandpapery" and then began to peel. Dr. Gilman advised me to keep my skin very moisturized to help with healing and by the 5th day... it glowed.
After the forth treatment....it was like I had a new face.
My skin looks so fresh and renewed. I'm thrilled with my result.
