It has been a exactly three weeks since my Pearl Laser treatment, and I look horrible! My face is still red and blotchy and I get stares from people every where I go! A friend of mine asked me if I was suffering from some kind of skin allergy. I am so frustrated and disappointed! I did it to get rid of the wrinkles under my eyes and to minimize my pores but so far my wrinkles are still there (just less deep) and my pores are the same size. And now I look worst than before the procedure because of all these red blotches all over my face. What's worst is that I'm getting married in 7 days! My doctor assured me that I would be fully healed by my wedding date--in fact his exact words were, "You'll be fine--if anything, you'll just have a slight pinkness to your face". Now I can't help but wonder if he just wanted my money!
I went to the store and purchased a product from Clinique that is supposed to help minimize "redness" on my face. The sales person put a little on me and it did help somewhat, but I still look awful. It brings me to tears every time I think about looking this way at my wedding!
