Post-Procedure: 4 Months Later

Here I am 4 months post procedure. I'm going to weigh the pros and cons I have noticed personally since undergoing the Matrix CO2 Fractional Laser: Pros: I genuinely like the way my skin looks. There were not overnight results, and at times I became impatient, but I can definitely tell my acne scarring has improved drastically. Red scarring left behind from previous acne disappeared completely within the first 2 months. Ice pick scarring unfortunately only lightened up, it did not

Post-Procedure: Day 4

Last night I slept really well. I didn't wake up in the middle of the night feeling as if I needed to plaster some Aquaphor all over my face. The best part about today is that the bronze color is almost completely gone. I still have a few blotches here and there but hopefully it will all be gone by tomorrow. What's showing now is some very fresh, pink, baby soft skin. I love it! Day 4: Today, is my last day using Aquaphor. Thank goodness. I can't stand putting that stuff on my face. Don't

Post-Procedure: Day 3

Day 3: I slept a lot better last night than I did the night before. It didn't feel as uncomfortable to sleep on my face and if I woke up in the middle of the night and my face felt dry I just applied more Aquaphor (It's what my cosmetologist recommended I use for the dryness and itchiness. It's around $5 at Wal-Mart. It has this waxy kind of texture to it) Anyway, I spoke to my nurse, Mary, on the phone this morning because I was a little concerned about the bronze-look I've had since yesterday

Post-Procedure: Day 2

So sleeping last night was a pain in the butt. The cosmetologist instructed me to sleep slightly elevated. Thats extremely difficult for someone like me who is most comfortable sleeping on their stomach. I didn't think a sleeping aid would be necessary but for any of you who are planning on getting this done, buy some equate sleep aid from Wal-mart, you'll want it. I didn't toss and turn last night because I was in pain or anything, it was just hard to get comfortable. I'm suppose to keep my fac

The Procedure

Today I went in for my Co2 Fractional Laser treatment at Harmony Laser Center, Colorado. Here's how my last 2.5 hours went: Prepping: I was at the laser center for about 10 minutes when I was then taken to the back by a very nice, welcoming nurse named Mary. While in the back, Mary explained to me what my skin care regimen is going to be for the next 5 days while applying 3 seperate topical numbing creams on my face (they all ended in "-caine") After signing a few quick forms and going ove

The Consultation

A few days ago I had a consultation with my local laser clinic called the Harmony Laser Center located in Colorado. The doctor I met with was extremely nice and gave me some really great advice. She began with an introduction about herself, her experience, and her successful patient outcomes. The good news: - In all of her experience she's never had one patient have a PERMANENT side-effect (i.e. redness, hyper/hypopigmentation) - I should be allowed to wear makeup again in just 5 d
