I didn't have the CO2 around the eyes and (post-procedure 3 months) still have redness and have developed rosacea. I live in Texas, so I might go see your dr. You look very good! READ COMMENT

Pearl can be fractional or not, depending on the frequency and depth. There is a Pearl Genisis which isn't as deep as the resurfacing (I am quoting the clinic who did mine). I will not do any type of laser again. I have decided after... READ COMMENT
