On April 29 2010 got pearl fraxel done on my stomach for my stretch marks. It felt like someone pop you with a rubber band over and over again, wasn't painful that because she had put the numbing cream on my stomach.The procdure took about 35mins it was from the right side of my stomach all the way to the left side its was costly she said it was like 2 faces. She also did a deep penatration it was about a 8or9 ,my stretch mark was from pregnacy about 7yrs old. Right after fraxel had lots of pin point bleeding pain, strating to feel the pain it was tolerable. 10-12 Hours later pin point bleeding had stop and pain went away.
DAY 1 did vinger water soaks 3 times a day, apply aquaphor after soaks follow instruction, Stills felt like a bad sunburn very swollen and red.
Day 3 Very hard to sleep at night with oitnment and clothes sticking to you. Still very red,hot and swollen.
Day 7 starting to peel look very gross and tender so uncomfortable to wear clothing with the aquaphor sticking to you.
Day 9 Went back to the office for a check up, she said looks good this is what it suppose to look it when its healing but to me its still looks gross.Still red and swollen hard to sleep still.
Day 12 swollen, a lighter shade of red, still doing vinger soaks 3 times a day and applying aquaphor. Feels tender, itchy,and hate the sticky feeling from the aquaphor.
Day 14 the color look hot pink have some dark spots in certian area almost peel completely. Now i'm using derma repair moistureizer at night and aquaphor day time. Derma repair it's nice cuz it doesn't leave the sticky feeling.;
Day 16 is today it's a light pink and still has dark spots area no peeling, still itchy no pain feels normal, not swollen anymore I can still see mt stretch mark but i gotta remember it's not completly heal, and I still have one or two more treatment.
Let you know result in a couple of days.....
