ProFractional Laser for Acne Scars

It's been about a week and a half since my ProFractional Laser Treatment specifically targeting my acne scars. My doc went quite deep so the treatment was pretty aggressive (way more aggressive than I was expecting!)

I wish I had done more research on profractional before just going ahead with it. I didn't realize how much of a hassle the recovery would be. I looked pretty awful for at least 5 days and was constantly covered in greasy moisturizers and my skin was tight, a bit flaky, and a touch itchy at times as well. The first few days were uncomfortable due to all the swelling. 

The jury is still out on the results and how my acne scars will respond. Building collagen takes months so it might be a good 6 months until I see all the results. For now my skin is still kind of red and patchy in spots and has faint lines where the laser left grid marks. Hopefully my complexion will even out within the next week or two. 

Here's a video with more details if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fAx33Ymq28
