I finally got a laser treatment. MOSAIC LASER to be exact. I was told that this system is the most advanced system/treatment available. I got my first session today. It cost me $500.00, this price is advertised as a half price special.
The visit took 1.5 hours, it included a lidocaine treatment which numb my face for the laser treatment. The nurse basically painted with a brush lidocaine all over my face and some neck areas. It took 30-40 minutes to take full affect. Next, she washed my face getting rid of any lotion and/or lidocaine.
The Mosaic is a 2 type laser treatment. The first was a point and click, the second was a rolling constant. Both were very painful. I over heard the Dr. say pump it up to 500. I assumed that was the unit of watts or amps, not sure. This took 20 minutes or less. Then the wrapped my face with gauge and cold packs for 30 minutes. That felt great.
Im home and its 8hrs later. My face is extremely sensative and red, not to mention I see mini infections happening, but I think this is normal, only b/c the doctor did a very agressive treatment on my face, he said that he was going to do that. They gave me anti-bacteria cream to use. I was told not to wash my face for 24hrs.
I'll update tis post tomorrow.
