-30 years old, Caucasian of European descent
-fair skin with lots of sun damage (childhood in FL). Large pores on cheeks and dull skin were also issues.
-did a Microlaser Peel with a Sciton Laser. Laser went 20 microns deep on face and 10 microns deep on chest (also significant sun damage) and neck.

-Day 1: Procedure at 12pm- little pain, took 1 Vicodin and used prescription numbing cream on lasered skin
-Day 1: 7pm - needed to ice my face badly, semi-intense burning feeling. Didn't wash my face tonight. Used only ice packs and Avene Spring Water Spray for comfort and hydration.
-Day 2: burning stopped completely, very tight and dry feeling. Used Neocutis Bio Cream and Neocutis Bio Gel (Cream felt better and more moisturizing than Gel - either one was recommended) after 24 hours which helped moisturize a lot. Started to wash 2x a day with Avene Tolerance Extreme Cleansing Lotion (also recommended to me).
-Day 3: 10am - woke up to seeing slight flaking around my nose - skin is drinking up the Neocutis BioCream.
-Day 3: 3pm - flaking on face is greatly intensifying/spreading. Face feels extremely tight and is a little uncomfortable to laugh or smile.
-Day 3: 10pm - almost entire face is flaking off, chest and neck have started flaking
-Day 4: to be continued...


Sun Damage, Large Pores at 30 Years Old

Face is looking good but chest is very irritated. Super tight feeling is subsiding. Used Avene Redness Relief Soothing Repair Mask (recommended to me) and leaving on all day.
