The cost reflects a package I purchased of 3 face, neck and chest Pixel treatments actually I purchased the 360 laser treatment but this is just the pixel part of the 360 laser. Day 1 I had my first pixel treatment done today. I went to a med spa where I have gone for glycolic peels and some PDL treatments. I had called my doctor in advance for a prescription of Lidocaine which is a numbing cream that was recommended by the estheticians at the med spa.I also took BENADRYL was also recommended by the med spa before my treatment. I waited a couple of minutes while it took affect and then we started the process.
The nurse who did my Pixel was very friendly and told me what to expect. We started at 1400 instead of the usual 1600 because of my sensitive/Rosacea skin type. She listened to my concerns before we started due to my very sensitive skin and started me on a lower laser setting to see how my skin would react to my first treatment. The Pixel hurt a little but not to bad, of course I had the numbing cream on so not sure how it would feel if I had none on.
I was given after care instructions and told to put cool wash clothes on my face and to only wash my skin with water for the first 2 days no chemicals or harsh soaps. On my way home the burning started to set in but after about 2 hours it calmed down. I will be taking a BENADRYL before bed and update you all later. Right now I look like I fell asleep in the sun with a screen door over my face.

My skin feels even tighter today which is to be expected. I am also starting to peel and itch a little. I will be applying some ointment to it tonight to help with the drying and itching.

I have no pain but my face feels a little like a light sand-paper or cats tongue...LOL Sorry don’t know what else to compare it to though. It doesn’t feel as tight today and the pixel spots that are on my face are getting a little better and lighter. I’m just hoping my skin looks a lot better in 2 days.
Day 5 My face is peeling and is still dry but it...

My face is peeling and is still dry but it is getting better. I can’t say 100% yet how my skin will react to this because my Rosecea sometimes can react days after getting something done. I will keep updating you all on my results though.
Day 6 My face is still peeling and a little dry....

My face is still peeling and a little dry. My forehead still has some pixel marks and isn’t peeling as much. My face is also a little redder today and I’m guessing it’s new skin and hopefully not my Rosecea. I will add a new update on day 7.
Day 7 and 8 Day 7 was about the same as day 6, I...

Day 7 was about the same as day 6, I was still peeling a little on my nose, chin and forehead. Day 8 most of the peeling is gone and my face is a little pink but it’s almost back to normal. My face is always a little pink though do to Rosacea. I haven’t noticed any fine lines looking less noticeable but I know they say that takes about 6 weeks to see the results so i will update you all on that part when I see my final results in 6 weeks.
This is based strictly on the nurse because I did not see a doctor at the med spa. She was AWESOME!
