Anyone have long-term improvement (9 months later at least) from lasers?

Recommended Posts

I have had 4 fraxel restores so far:

1st 60mj level 9

2nd 70 mj level 10

3rd 70 mj level 10

4th 70mj level 11

As well as 1 perlane injection and 1 restylane injection.

After all this only slight improvement (if any) once the magical swelling went down. But boy do I love the swelling it produces. My thought is since we all love the swelling so much why don't we try to find a way to maintain some swelling!!

Any thoughts?

If you had improvement that lasted 9 months or longer, which type of laser was it and do you remember the setting level or number of passes?

I read 2 different derms say that the effects from some form of CO2 can last as long as 5 years.

I have come to the conclusion that lasers, even CO2, really aren't that great for deep scars. But I suppose some improvement is better than none.

My thought is since we all love the swelling so much why don't we try to find a way to maintain some swelling!!

Any thoughts?

Perhaps frequent dermarolling.

How did the perlane and restylane injections work for your scars?
