I have decided to prevent the process of aging with the tools available. Also, I wish to reduce pores sizes and light wrinkles. Firstly, I am mixing IPL, as suggested by my dermatologist and Fraxel and secondly, I am taking care of my skin on a daily basis. I have used Retin A, Kinetase and vitamin C creams alternatively. I am using Botox every so often. I guessed that a little prevention will go a long way. I have been avoiding the sun as much as I can. Fraxel has been a little invasive but it is too early for me to tell.
My second treatment, 7 weeks apart from the first, is coming up in January. I am getting two IPL and two Fraxel. In reading the reviews, I guess I will have a third one. I am using Fraxel II. The nurses have been wonderful. I have been getting the Vbeam perfecta as well as a treat after the IPL. I hope to be happy with the results as anyone of you wishes. Women have always wanted to look younger... I guess I am no different. I just hope I get my money 's worth.
I had the CO2 about 10 years ago. I was a bit young for it but I was doing this to prevent the aging process. I hope to have a good experience with Fraxel II. I had 3 passes and I pay 1,000 per treatment for Fraxel II and 400 per IPL/vbeam. Hope this is helpful!
