After fraxel treatment only a little pink....

I had my first Fraxel yesterday and today my skin is only slightly pink and a little tight, NO SWELLING! I do notice tiny like red pin pricks on my face.??? I've never heard of this. Any one else had that kind of experience. I am trying to get rid of moderate acne scars. Any relation between the amount of swelling and redness to results? I plan on having 4 more treatments and hopefully it will be more aggresive.

Also, I had a physicians assistant do the procedure not the plastic surgeon but I can request the doc if I want. Does anyone think it matters?

Just want the best results possible......

Should I notice any results yet?

Over the next week you should notice the change in your skin 1st treatment is always easy it gets much hotter from now on in,i also had the assistant do mine with no problems and i only had 2 treatments went back to needling with better results than fraxel.

The red marks are where it is causing very slight "under the skin" bleeding. It means you are getting the most bang for your buck w/o totally destroying the skin.

I only did my first, but am very encouraged all in all. Then again, it works better on light skinned people, and I'm very white... very expensive treatment, but I'm hoping it will be worth it.
