I just had the procedure done today and since I'm confining myself to the house for four days I will update this regularly. I had the procedure done at 6:00 tonight (9/4/08). It was entirely painless for me. The doctor put a numbing ointment on my face but gave me no pain killers or anything. What I felt was more of a vibration than any pain so I'm pretty happy. It's now 7:20 and I'm feeling the ointment wearing off and now feel a mild sun-burned feeling. I will update as I recover. I should say that I had this 3 years ago and at first I wasn't happy with the results- didn't see anything- BUT after a couple of months I remember looking in the mirror thinking I looked kinda good : ) This time I only had my face done (hence the low price tag) My doctor doesn't like to do face,neck,and chest at the same time- he said it's harder for the skin to recover. I may have my neck and chest done but I'll have to monitor the results of this treatment. Stay tuned!

I tried to update this 24 hrs. after but it didn't take.  So.... day 24 hours:  was a little swollen, still painfree, would not have wanted to go to work.

Day 48 hours (now- sep. 6)  I woke up a little more swollen and my eyes were red and weepy but I may have gotten some Aquaphon in there (by the way that's what they give you to keep moisturized- it's like vaseline but less petroleum).  eye problem gone after waking. I became really itchy this afternoon but a face washing seemed to help.  I think I could almost go into work today with good foundation but don't plan on trying.  We'll see what tomorrow brings
