Good morning folks~
This is the morning after my second fraxel treatment and I am redder than the first but have about the same amount of swelling. The doctor decided to go up to the highest strength this time because I tolerated the procedure so well last time. If you read my blog you can see she was almost at the highest level last time already.
This treatment didn't bother me as much as the first one because I knew what to expect and how bad it was going to get...or not. I knew the down time, etc. so the fear of the unknown factor had been removed. My eyes are watering a lot like last time but I think it is due to swelling. For some reason I swell the most around my eyes. I am not in any pain at all but not likely to go out shopping today that's for sure.
I will upload pics later today. So far I am loving the treatment results. The entire texture of my skin is different and better just after one treatment. Oh...also, I read the comment below on the Baylor College of Medicine site regarding the particular type of laser treatment I am receiving:
"The risks of scarring or skin discoloration are extremely low as this technology is very gentle on the skin."
That made me feel much better!
