My Turn, my Turn Wanting Nicer Skin. Rancho Cucamonga, CA

About a year I joined rs and started reading...

about a year I joined rs and started reading everyone stories. I am not a stranger to ps but never really thought about a FL and then the more I read and some other woman's pictures I knew I was going to have a FL .Further after visiting a few ps I knew I would need a fractional laser so I have started with the laser first. T the first step in the procedure ways to prepare my skin for 3 weeks hydroquinone and retina . my girlfriend and I arrived at the office an hour before to begin numbing our skin an hour before the procedure further half an hour before they started the laser I took a 1/2 half a pain pill ,to take the edge I was excited and a tiny bit nervous. Nurse started at the hair line holy crap that hurt but there was no turning back so I grabbed the side of table and said to my self suck it up. During the procedure I started to shake a little ,so I grabbed the side of the table a little tighter. further there was a male tech in the room to help karen . At one point he rubbed my hair and since I was kinda shaking a little I told him oh that feels good lol.So occasionally he would rub my arm and I would forgot the pain for a moment. Later in the procedure he pulled my ear "I said are you checking to see if I am still breathing " He laughed no I am just making sure we got right by ear too. To decrible what it felt . I guess it's like a rubber snapping many times over. It was over in about 45 miins . in addition , I did my neck that did not hurt at all. Secondly, I moved into another room where Debbie put cold compress on my face which felt wonderful that went on for about hour then I went home .

better nights sleep

After the laser, I came home face was sore but not hot anymore I cleaned up around the house made dinner. Around 7pm I started to not feel well I believe the antibiotics were bothering my stomach.I laid down fell a sleep and slept for a few hours, I was up for a while then I took a benadryl and slept great. The next day I was up cleaning around the house with a very swollen face ,I applied auqaphor several times that day. That night I took a benadryl for the swelling and I was wide a wake until 3 am what a terrible night ( I was not in pain ) just mad because I couldn't sleep.At 8am I was up washed my face very gentle applied hydroctisore made by vi derm and sunscreen that was given to me from inspired spa. Then I took my 16 year old to get his drive license, I kept my head down as much as possible and figured I would see this people again anyways lol .Most importantly my son passed his driving test. No weird stares.Several times a day reapplied the hydrocortisone. Again I was not any pain. Thank full I slept well. Lastely, today I started to peel.

Awe the days of laying in the sun

I remember those days well growing up near the beach, spending hours on the beach I loved every minute of it. But if I had know all the skin damage I was doing to get that great sun. Now, I am trying reverse what I have done. Boy I wish there were do overs in life I have list atleast I have a chance to fix my skin. Lastely my skin is still peeling and pink the swelling is gone.

Reality ; (

dang it ,it's back to work tomorrow although it wasn't a vacation I did get some extra things done in the house. well as far as my face it's doing peeling it's still pink now the waiting game to see the final results I was told up to a year .....

mixto sx micro fractional C02 laser

it's been one month today that I had my laser treatment I was red for about 3 weeks but it wasn't too bad make up toned it down . what I have noticed my skin texture is alot better and even some fines are gone but not all but again it takes a full 6 months to see finally results so five more months to go

another month ....

I am a little over 2 months now and my skin texture is better but no magic wand, wrinkles are still there. In the last month I have done botox to my forehead and 1 syringe of juvederm to my nasefold . Hope fully collgen will build and reduce the wrinkles
