Outstanding! Completely Thrilled with my results and it's only been day 1! To Begin with, I had my initial consult with my MD regarding laser type, healing process, what if any side-effects. On my day of treatment I simply applied in layers lidocaine/prilocaine numbing cream carefully to my face while paying close attention to the hairline and jaw lines. I then was advised to cover the cheek and forehead areas with saran wrap. This aids in the absorption of the medication. Next, I was driven to the Doc's office which was a 1 hour trip but well worth it. My MD is a saint and artist! Once there at the office I took a pill to relax such as ativan or valium along with a pain pill percacet. I then waited an hour for those to kick in. Next, I Was brought into the OR room where I gently and comfortably laid down. An IV was started to help keep me comfortable from experiencing any pain. Then the injections began for the local nerve blocks. I didn't feel a thing! Then he proceeded with the laser to do a full face procedure. However, at no additional cost he removed several unsightly nose scars for me. I am elated! The scars were almost 5 yrs old and he simply suggested attacking those as well without charging me any additional money! So, as the procedure pressed forward I noticed a peculiar smell which to my surprise was the skin being lasered away. Still, I felt no pain! This really surprised me since upon doing my homework out here in cyberland, many of those undergoing the procedure said they did experience pain. I did not!!!! The whole face was completed in about one and half hours. He was very through and conscientous as to assure that I was never in any pain at any time. Overall it was definitely the best decision I ever made for my skin.
I did it to improve the over all appearance of my skin since I had been a smoker from years ago. Also, I had some nasty scars on my nose that makeup could not cover up but rather made it worse. But now thanks to Dr. Potyondy's wizardry, I can now face the world with confidence!
Well it's Saturday and on day 4. Very Puffy...

I am very pleased with the results thus far! According to my Doc I am only 20% of the way, i.e. collagen remodeling must occur which takes in the neighborhood of up to 6 mos. So, I must be patient and I realize that this is a gradual process but well worth the time. In the meantime while that is occurring, I will partake in botox. This will help in relaxing the muscles around my eyes and forehead. So, after all is done I will post the before and after pics that my fiance took of me. They are upclose and dramatically reveal my skin after at Day 7 and the amazing differences in the texture and tone without makeup on. Until then, Good luck to everyone else!
My Doctor: Louis Potyondy, MD
Everyone on his staff is respectful, patient, and kind. Dr. Potyondy himself is professional, compassionate, and honest. He is truly an artist. I would further like to add that if you live within a one hour radius of Thomasville, GA he is simply worth the trip! I live in Midway, FL and opted to not select a surgeon in Tallahassee. I had already been seeing Kirbo and Rosenberg but was completely dissatisfied with their services. So, I did my research and found that Dr. Potyondy had a 5 STAR rating. If you keep looking on the web you too will find nothing less than excellent reviews. So, Thanks real self for delivering nothing but the best!
