erbium has a huge downtime - it was a massive shock for me to wake up in hospital and look in the mirror. I knew it would be bad as obviously i did my research but I looked a lot worse than any pics I had seen. i did initially take a pic but couldn't keep it as I was scared anyone would see it.
I'm not kidding, it looked like i had been in a car crash. Erbium can cause scarring but my surgeon was adamant that it was the best laser to use without question.
