Well, it's only been 24-hours, but so far...so good. I had the re:pair for light acne scarring on my cheek, fine lines, and pore size. I'm 36 years old and a fair blonde.

The actual procedure was less then 1/2 hour, and yes it hurts, especially around the hair line where the numbing cream is less. It was like a tattoo kind of pain, but totally doable for 30 mins.
My face is red, read, red and still a little swollen. However, my scarring looks great! So, I'll post more pictures once I heal some more!
Today is day 3 and it looks like it's healing okay...
