I'm a 52 year female. One year ago I decided to "freshen up" my skin with a profractional after reading all about it on line, and talking to a doctor. My skin was pretty nice, and I wish I had left well enough alone.
Dr. gave me 3 choices, light, medium or heavy treatment. I chose light so I could go to work on Monday. The procedure was not really painful. I had a "sunburn" for a couple of weeks, but no one really commented, it really just looked like a sunburn.
One year later, my skin is now "crepey" around the eyes and mouth, and when I smile, there are lines in my cheeks when I smile which were not there a year ago. My skin texture was so much nicer prior to the procedure. I wish I had never done it.
