Naggy waggers. Well they're on their way.
In the two days following the treatment I was extremely burnt, and following that, very dry and tight, with even limited facial expression possible. This was despite regular application (twice a day) of an oil free moisturiser (Cetaphil).
After this, I experienced dramatic levels of disgusting peeling (ew). This seems to be nearly finished, so I take it that the 'recovery' has about run it's course.
Edit: Removed partial recovery photos, pending the final photos.
It's not quite clear from the iPad camera, but what I've noticed is that now that the redness has receded, 90% of my minor active acne has disappeared, along with very close to 100% of my pinkish/redder marks. The darker red/brownish marks of which I possess in abundance have not been eradicated, but I would say they are a little bit lighter maybe.
That being said, I still have a lot of problems with acne, specifically these darker marks and minor scarring (apparently one patch on my left cheek)
I doubt I can afford the numerous laser treatments recommended so it's off to some holistic remedies for me.
