Hi JLB17. I have the non-CO2 Pixel and would never use the CO2 - too risky. However, there is a company in Princeton NJ near you that makes a very elegant version called ECO2, and they have a superstar derm user near princeton...call Lutronic Lasers if you ever need another treatment. But for fixing, consider this: You will heal a lot slower than you would think - that is a very common source of stress post-treatment. Be patient. Use a gentle soothing moisturizer or cover-up product like Avene Spring Water GEL or Lycogel hysdrating foundation. I recommend staying away from aggressive hydroquinone creams. I can find you some fix-it follow-up treatment providers I know in Jersey, even though i live in Ohio.
