Still Look Tanned After a Month of Fraxel Treatment - Surrey

After a month of getting the fraxel i still look...

After a month of getting the fraxel i still look red and tanned, also the area around the cheeks and chin looks dark, i am hoping that with time this will go away.

Within 2 days the redness was gone and took a week for the skin to peel off and after that i was left with radant skin, yes i was told to put lots of moisturizer. I just hope to look the same or at least for all the trouble and money there is should be some improvement. I am using mineral makeup and yes spf all the time. Thank you...

Yes,that would be the best way to describe it.... really bad makeup look. My foundation does not match either as well. I was also thinking of doing a microderabrasion treatment to get rid of that layer of skin, i am scheduled for another fraxel treatment but wil not do it till again, i dont want to look even darker than this, i am also fair so it doesnt look good at all. I was better off without the fraxel treatment i looked much nicer with my foundation on. I did a fraxel treatmen 2 years back and it did wonders for me, i think the dosage or strength was really strong this time. I have a special occasion coming too for me next month so it really sucks! So do you look like you used to before the fraxel. Thank you.

How long did it take you to heal last time? Depending on the time period 2 years ago....maybe you had the 1st generation. You could have had the 3rd generation also known as the Dual. Give it time. Baby your skin. It is angry right now and needs to calm down. Glo Minerals really helped cover mine plus it as a SPF.

The really bad makeup look (tanned look) faded for me around 4 months. I went the do nothting route based on my derm's recommendation. I think it would have faded more quickly had I followed another derm's opinion to start Nu Derm. I am very fair so it was quite disturbing. A month out is a long way from healing.

Best wishes!!

yes i cant wait to look normal again, even the pores look enlarged, but the good thing is some brown spots i had are gone , and so has my acne scars, happy about that. I did go to the doctor and he said just to put lots of moisturizer, hope that helps. Thanks...

That is good that you have seen some good results from it. Please keep us posted if the pigmentation continues to slowly go back to normal, or what you are seeing.

Does it seem like you can see bits of change as the days go by, or has it seemed pretty much the same for a while?

I am seeing changes gradually as days go by, but it seems at a very slow pace...

Well I'm glad to hear you are seeing some changes at least. Have you been back to the doctor/clinic that did your treatment? I'd be curious to hear what they had to say about it.
