Unhappy and Worried with Fraxel So Far

I am 41 years old and have been unhappy with the way my eyes have been aging (crows feet, dark circles,fine lines).  I went to a very reputable laser MD and had one very aggressive and expensive treatment.  I actually flew from CO to NY to visit this doctor.  I had a limited amount of time in NY, so this was the reason for the 1 agressive treatment.  I had awful swelling, oozing and crusting for about a week, which got visibly better day by day.  It has been 2 weeks,  and the swelling around the eyes is what is worrying me now.  There are 2 rows of "bags" under one eye and one bag under the other.  My eyes look like they have rings under them.  Every day I wake up and hope to see just the tiniest bit of improvement, but they remain unchanged.  I wish I knew that this was temporary.  I could deal with the puffieness if I knew for sure that I won't have these bags permanently.  At this point I am thinking my old eyes weren't so bad and wish I had them back.  If anyone could offer an explanation or give comments they'd be MUCH appreciated.    Sue
