Micro Swelling

Recommended Posts

Just wondered how long on average micro swelling usually lasts? i would like to get an idea how long i have to wait before i can determine whether the results i see are from microswelling or collagen formation...

Thanks in advance!!

A day to a week at most?

The swelling subsides in a few days. The microswelling lasts 2-4 weeks, depending on how carefully you're looking at your skin (and how your skin reacts to fraxel, obviously)...

for dermaroller (sure it is not too different for fraxel) to properly gauge results you should wait for at least 6 weeks, this timeframe will give you a good idea about results

Well most of my scars never filled in significantly even with the swellign straight after the rolling... the did fill in a bit a few days post, but now most of them are same as before. I just hope i have plenty of collagen placement to look foward to!! It has only been a week though so early days indeed...
