Is "fractional Co2" A Specific Laser Or A Broad Term Covering Multiple Lasers?

03 March 2014 - 11:35 AM

I'm just looking at different derm's websites and at the different types of lasers they offer, and one derm's site (that I'm particularly interested in) says they offer "Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser (confluent and fractionated)." I'm just wondering, is fractional CO2 just a broad term for multiple lasers? Or is fractional CO2 a specific type of laser?

 

For example, would Fraxel Restore/Fraxel repair (I realize these are two very different lasers) both be considered fractional CO2 lasers?

 

Thanks!


Accutane Question

25 August 2013 - 06:17 PM

So today is day 60 of my accutane treatment and I have maybe 1-2 actives but lots of red marks from where acne was when I started my course. Now obviously I'll have a few more months of accutane but I'm just wondering if pretty much all my active acne is gone, is this the best my face is going to get for my course? Did anyone else' acne clear quite fast then see any results for the red marks left over by the end of their course?

 

Thanks!


Has Anyone Tried Exposed Skin Care?

20 July 2013 - 05:20 PM

I'm just curious...

 

I tried it in april of this year but after a little over a month stopping using it because it was ruining my skin. Unfortunately the damage was done. It turned my very mild/persistent acne into severe acne and I am now on accutane.

 

I'm only a littler over 20 days into accutane but my face is in much better condition with way less active acne, however I'm left with tons of red marks from the extreme breakout the Exposed Skin Care caused me.

 

Just curious if anyone else has heard of or tried it and what their experience was like?
