Hello, I had a micropeel (50microns) + Profractional (450 microns) 6 weeks ago. I had a profractional before at 400 microns and had healed fast (1 week). However this time I turned out very red. After 4 weeks my dermatologist prescribed me topicort for the redness and finacea to prevent hyperpigmentation and said that I am taking longer to heal. Can this be true? just taking longer to heal? Thanks

Can healing time be different following the same procedure?
The answer is yes. Following the first laser procedure, your skin was not as sensitive. Collagen is stimulated following the first procedure but the skin may be a bit more sensitive. Also, hormone fluctuations and nutrition may be factors in delayed healing. It is not unusual for healing to be different following the second laser procedure.
