Had an eCO2 laser resurfacing 12 weeks ago on entire face.
pros- face feels tighter especially around the upper and lower eye area. Small amount of tightness in lower cheek area (not as much as I wanted).
cons- took at least 2 months to recover, though was told only one weeks time to recover. Redness persists, at 3 months still pink in areas. Complexion does not seem as good as prior to procedure (redness, some small white spots, a few small brown spots-these spots can be covered with makeup), once all redness goes away the complexion may be better.
Would like to have photofacials to even out the complexion. Is it too soon? Can I use a whitening gel with 2% hydroquinone to help even skin tone and not worry about irreversible black spots. My skin type is light American Irish.
