I have had subcision with fraxel restore twice last winter...
decided to take a more aggressive approach and try a new doctor and try the c02 fractional laser for my full face. He also used another laser I believe it was called broad band just before the fractional.
The pain was far worse than the fraxel but it was still bearable. I refused nerve blockers cause I dont like needles near my beautiful face.
Anyway its been about 2 hours... im red, some bleeding, little to no pain right now but i feel really warm.
Here are some pics:
