In between breakouts, I had a couple Affirm treatments. Not sure if this is the same procedure. I think it is more of a skin rejuvenation laser although it has an amazing impact on acne scars. I only did 2 treatments and microdermabrasions in between , but I saw some good results. I recall my face having red marks for a day or so after treatment. I did it on a weekend so it didnt bother me as the red disappeared by Monday. Since I am still battling acne , they have put these treatments on hold for me until I finish Accutane regime. I also remember that the nurse supplied me with a post procedure lotion to apply after being treated. I did use this like crazy. Really helped with the "burning" feeling. If they gave u a lotion , try using that a few times a day at leat to clear it up. Good luck ;)
