Cynosure Fractional CO2 Skin Resurfacing - Park Ridge, IL

I had fractional CO2 done last on my face and neck...

I had fractional CO2 done last on my face and neck to improve overall appearance and get rid of acne marks and some sun damage. I loved the results but decided to do it again this year to tighten neck skin some more, eliminate sun damage on my chest, and tighten periorbital skin. I chose to have more aggressive treatment.

How much longer for it to start getting better?

It has been over 48 hrs since the treatment. I don't feel or look any better. However, swelling has subsided somewhat. At least I can open my eyes

72 hrs post treatment

Last night was able to sleep for 5 hrs without reapplying cold packs. And this am I didn't wake up in pain. Just felt a little discomfort

4 days post procedure

I am on my way to see a doctor. I still don't look socially presentable by any means. I am concerned about persistent yellow crusting under my lower lip and indentations on my cheeks from the grid. I am sure I'll be calling off for the rest of this week

On the way to recovery or heading toward disaster?

Geez... I look like a burn victim for sure:) After enduring all this the wrinkles better be gone. Otherwise, I'll be one mad woman... Lol

I am having C02 Fraxel tomorrow on my full face. How did this turn out for you? My doctor has warned me that I can be red for 3 months or longer. Was it worth it. Mine is costing 2800 US.

Hello, can you please update, I'm so curious. At first I was told I would be having Co2, now they said AcuScan120, not sure what the difference is. Thanks

Thank you for sharing your review with progress pictures! Was the treatment painful?

It was a little painful around the mouth, tip of the nose, and lower portion of the sternum . Those body areas are one of the sensitive when it comes to any procedures.
