Anyone experience a strange prickly feeling after Fraxel?

Recommended Posts

I am 19 days post-Fraxel. When I press/touch my face skin (i.e. to put on a cream) I feel like a "needling" feeling. It used to be worse, but I still get the feeling on my cheeks.

Any one experience this? Could it be some of the internal micro-wounding still healing?

I am concerned because I was instructed to restart retin-A after 2 weeks, but mabe it is delaying the healing process??

Thanks for any feedback.

hi maggie - yes, i've had the same feeling. I would get it sometimes just when I bent over to pick something up, too! It eventually goes away. (My last fraxel was in February.) I think it must have something to do with internal healing? Good luck!
