Inevitable outcome of sensitive Irish skin living in the desert Southwest is pre-cancer cells on my face. During my annual exam at the dermatologist, he recommended a couple of options for dealing with this including the photodynamic blue light procedure. I took the earliest appointment available (two days from then) to get it done before I chickened out. Barely had time to check out RealSelf. Almost cancelled the appointment when reading how many people found the actual procedure and the following couple of days very painful. Had it done yesterday; didn’t find it painful just tingling like when you stay too long ‘working on the tan’ at the beach. This morning I’m swollen, red, and it feels like bad sunburn but still not painful. Per post treatment instructions, I’m staying inside for two days, applying zinc based sunscreen, and have Aquaphor ready for the peeling stage coming up. I’ll post an update in a couple of days at which time I’ll rate the ‘worth it’ section. Covered by insurance so just a $60 co-pay.
The doctor is CRAIG E. NELSON and NOT Jeffery Nelson.
