Endoscopic Brow Lift and CO2 Laser Resurfacing - Riverside, CA

I am 41. I would often hear "what's wrong?" when I felt happy. I also had some acne scarring from off and on during life, but predominantly cystic breakouts when I was pregnant. I will update. So far this is by far easier than I had read about. I may have forgotten some (meds and a helpful mama didn't hurt ;) I also simultaneously had a mini tummy tuck to kind of "refresh" one I had prior to my pregnancy (yes, brilliant) So far I see instant results. I am sure pinkness and a little swelling are making the skin look better then it may in it's final state, but the eyes, YES. Not much swelling and practically no bruising. I can actually see better peripherally since day 1. My right brow was lower. Not sure how that will pan out yet

4 days post brow lift and laser. Skin all flaked off. Just redness that's mostly subsided. I was able to put mineral makeup on and totally look normal

4 days after

All skin has peeled, just red. Giving myself a breather from headband

4 days post no makeup

Day 2

Tight, but Aquaphor bearable. Doc did it around an 11 day back to work plan. I realize he could have gone way more aggressive. I looked normal with makeup on day 5 :(

5 days after

Not too shabby I think for blasting my face and a brow lift! I'll post more as I think there is still swelling. My skin looks so good. Icepick type scrs still present, but softer. I want to be sure I stay on a good regimin. Clueless where to start, but thinking gentle cleanser, Obagi Clear and some type of retin A

Day 5 with light makeup and hat over bandage

Easy overall recovery

I feel like I looked maybe 8-10 years ago. Just refreshed. Happy :)

Thank you ! I peeled quickly, like within 4 days and was kind of bummed. It's still working though. Peeled some more last night. I hope it continues as I still have some little pit type scars. Honestly the pain was soooo minimal. More annoying than anything
