Shiny skin on the forehead after Fraxel

Although shiny skin does not occur for everyone after Fraxwl Restore, it is understandable on some forehead skin that doesn't have many pores. You certainly may wish to temporarily wait for a couple of months or more before resuming the fraxel restore and see how your skin looks.
