I asked my derm if I was reaching the age for a facelift and she said I could delay the need for that kind of work with four sessions of Fraxel: restore.
I had three treatments in three months, got scared and stopped. My fair skin has turned ruddy, and I have developed long wrinkles beside and under my eyes and around my mouth. My derm says fair skin is prone to redness and that she will give me a reduced rate on IPL sessions to treat the redness, but I don't know if I trust her anymore. I wonder if Fraxel is not the first step in a long process of treatments to correct side effects of prior treatments.
If my skin stays like this, I will need a plastic surgeon. I regret, regret, regret it.
