Just Had First Treatment - Seattle, WA

I just had my first ematrix treatment yesterday...

I just had my first ematrix treatment yesterday and my face is blotchy red, swollen and tingly/scratchy today. I keep reading no down time and can go back to normal activities...I look like I burnt my face off and certainly don't want to go anywhere. I had to go out today so I put a bunch of tinted moisterizer on and some powder and now my face feels worse! It has lines on it...like I slept for 48 hours on a creased pillow.

There is some downtime for sure and it is a bit uncomfortable too, they need to be more honest about that, they make it sound like you go in and get it down in 20 mins and can go back to work, and that is NOT the case, or at least with me anyway.

I had gone into the American Laser for another...

I had gone into the American Laser for another treatment and they told me about eMatrix and talked me into it, because there was NO down time and less invasive than a lot of the other treatments, plus it several treatments in one, wrinkles, sun damage, skin tightening, acne... the first 3 I was very interested in as I just turned 48. So I hadn't researched it at all. I did call to tell them I wasn't happy that they weren't honest about the recovery time and they said they just got this machine and were finding that the recovery time was a lot longer than they were informed too. So they were thinking about changing their information to be more accurate. My face is less swollen and red now, 5 days, but still looks bad and really itchy! They asked if I was wearing any makeup...I have some tinted moisterizer and powder...I have to wear something if I'm going to go out and look have decent!!!!
