Fraxel bronzing = brown scabs?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

Like many others, I have quietly followed all the posts here on fraxel information and eveyone's experiences with it so far.

I myself had my first treatment done 48 hrs ago. My face is still very red and swollen (oh...my eyes!) but my biggest concern at the moment is regarding bronzing.

I had a full face treatment, and all over my face a small brown dots...the best way of describing them would be to compare it to scraping your skin over concrete and the little broken scabs that form over the damaged skin. Is this what is referred to as bronzing, as I assumed that was more a skin colour change that would last for a few days. Any information on your experience with this would be greatly appreciated.

On a more practical note, can I ask what you do for post-treatment care? I washed my face carefully yesterday with Cetaphil, and apply CRu lotion every few hours to keep things moist. Can I shower...I read in an earlier post that someone waited 3 days. As I'm hiding out I can hold out that long...but I miss my shower!

Thankyou everyone

Normal reactions, i experienced the same "bronzing" as you did. It goes away. Take a shower!!!!! No reason to not take a shower either, just be sensitive towards your face.
