So everything went pretty smooth for me. The doctor where I went for the procedure was knowledgable, super nice, and most important of all, compassionate. Treatment took roughly an hour with a total of 160 injections. As far as pain goes, I am farely tolerant so it felt like pin pricks to me. I was told to apply some form of antibotic ointment for the next few days and to keep the area moist.
Now to play the waiting game for the next few months and see if I respond well to this treatment.
I have a question to those who has had Airgent/Enerjet treatment. Did any of you ask what the number setting for the machine represented? And did any of you used some form of retinoid to boost collagen production after a few weeks?
So I contacted one of the clinics closest to my location and asked about long term results of Enerjet. I was told that a series of 3 treatments are needed for "optimal" results. Results are supposedly good up to 5 years in which a followup treatment is recommended after. I asked about the correlation between the application of Enerjet and subsicion and I am waiting for followup call from the doctor.
Does anyone know what the difference between the old Airgent and new Enerjet machine is?
If you are going to begin with 50% than why bother asking? 50% should be enough to see good results and 50% is a good acid strength to begin with. I've never tried 100% as 50% is good enough for me. Give 50% a try and see how it goes first. Be careful by the way and good luck
TCA peels are really meant for exfoliation and red marks. I've done a 25% full face peel with no results, but maybe that's just me. There are always other type of peels like the Jessner and the A-peel, which I've heard alot of good things about.
