Very uncertain at this point if it was the right thing to do only because of timing. Procedure done 6/20/09 and he told me he used the highest frequency(?) and stacked several parts of my face. It was uncomfortable but definitely tolerable during.
First 24 hours were a nightmare. Woke up at 5:00 next morning in severe pain...eyes practically swollen shut and face blazing red, burning and swollen. Took pain meds which did help.
I'm on day 3 and although there is no pain, my skin is ultra tight and I look like a severe burn victim. Still extremely swollen and crazy reddish brown. I'm going on a fabulous vacation in 9 days and am terrified I will not be back to normal. Is 9 days enough to heal after such a severe treatment? Is there anything I can do to help the healing process along? I started using Aquaphor with a couple of drops of vitamin E oil mixed in as of this morning.
