HIDE OUT DURING RECOVERY

- 23 Sep 2008
I am day one post procedure and very scary looking. The procedure itself was not too bad. The pain started about an hour after and lasted about 12 hours. I tried an aloe/sunburn gel as recommended and it felt like alcohol in an open wound. I took Tylenol and ibuprophen and that helped. I am also applying a face lotion frequently.
But what I really want to tell people is depending on how aggressive your doctor is with your treatment- expect to take off a week of work. I don't even want to go to the grocery store or drop my kids off at school. I am red with brown patchy skin and those grid marks are very prominent. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
