Why i did it? I am 61 yrs old with white white skin and some winkles around the mouth and eyes. I started using Retitin A and hychoclic acid lotion in November 2011 and was happy with the clarity of my skin. However, i wanted to get of winkles and in April, 2012 I decided to go ahead with the procedure because I had the time to invest to the downtime it takes recoup. Please be prepared -- it is painful during the procedure. It is extremely painful for the next 3 days afterwards. You look like a burn victim. I had the procedure done on Thursday -- and was in bed until Sunday. Then your face starts to scap over and fall off. It looks bad!!! It is now 10 days out. No more pain, my face is pink. So time will tell.
It is so important to find and develop a relationship with your doctor. This procedure is extreme and you will wonder WHY you did it. I got a recommendation from my GP and then I spent $100 to visit the plastic surgeon. She started me out conservatively to reach my ultimate goal. NOTE: even the doctors have not had this procedure done due to the DOWNTIME for recouperation.
