So they led me into the room and put a ton of numbing cream on my back and let me sit there for an hour (which I had of known that was going to happen I would have brought headphone or a book). The doctor stopped in again and told me that even though the test spoke went well with no discoloration he would still take it easy on this first procedure with only 2 passes instead of 3 to ensure my skin reacted well. I wanted to say nOOoo doctor just do 3 passes if not 4!!! But I decided because he is the doctor not to interfere because I didn't want to make the wrong decision and come out of there with my skin severely discolored because of my own inpatients. So the procedure started and I must say it is very uncomfortable. Not horrible pain at all but very uncomfortable like getting a tattoo on your back basically or a thousand bee stings. Anyway it was over in about 10 minutes.
Afterwards my back was very very red and it felt like a severe sunburn. However that only lasted a few hours and then I was fine. It has now been 2 weeks and I feel as though I cannot see any results. And also it kind of itches a lot. It may be a little better but not much because I cannot see the difference after the first procedure. But on the next procedure he will do 3 or 4 passes which should give some good results.
However now me and my wife are expecting and I am starting to feel weird about spending 750 dollars a month on laser treatments when I should be saving the money to start our family. I will consider financing them so that I can save the cash!! Next appointment in 4 weeks so I will post again after my next go around!!
