I had my first Fraxel Restore treatment appoximately 7 weeks ago for acne scars. Although the intense redness subsided in a few days, the skin on my face is certainly mildly more pink and slighly more tinted. When I extend my jaw, there is a definitive line.
I just went in for my second treatment 4 days ago and the redness is much more intense and the "demarcation line" is even more pronounced. Edema is still present. Is this discoloration after Fraxel normal? Will it be permanent? My doctor gave me a single dose of 20mg prednisone to help with redness this go around, to no avail. My skin is probably Type I or II (my family is Welsh and French).
