TotalFX healing pictures

Recommended Posts

A log of my post-care treatment is in the thread http://www.acne.org/messageboard/TotalFX-h...rt-t270352.html

This was TotalFX, DeepFX was done at a depth of 17 on the cheeks and I think 15 on the forehad at a density of 4 (out of 5). Yag was done under my eyes for dark circles. Definitely saw an improvement from that, that's a no brainer procedure.

These pictures were taken with my phone's front facing camera every morning. I think I forgot to wash off the manuka honey on day 2. The evening picture I took one night was 12 hrs after the morning picture.

So far (Day 5) the results look great. I hope they stay. Forehead lines are significantly reduced as is the scaring on my cheeks. Hopefully residual inflammation isn't just pushing everything out.

I'll continue to take pictures until about 14 days out.

Good pictures. You do seem to have a lot more scabbing(or crusting) than I am used to, but a whole lot less swelling. Keep on posting, things will be back to normal soon.

It crusted most where they did the DeepFX, ActiveFX alone would have healed a lot quicker.

All of the scabs fell off about an hour ago. Finally left the house for the first time a little while ago. I've never been more happy to sit in traffic in my life. I would have a horrible hermit.

Looking good! Glad to hear that your scabs came off and you were able to venture out. There's nothing worse than having to sit inside all day long!

Day 6 picture attached.

Looks like it didn't do much for the forehead line but a line between the eyes I had is 90% gone. My face is only this red because I just spent a few minutes cleaning it. There are a few residual scabs along the nasoflobian lines and one on a mole above my eye they blasted.

So far I'm very pleased with how the scars on my cheek look, that was the main reason I did this. Also lots of little bumps on my forehead and that didn't go away after 6 microderm treatments looks really good but it's hard to tell for sure until the healing is finished.

Overall I think it looks pretty good considering the procedure was done about 5 1/2 days ago (Tuesday afternoon) and how aggressive they went on the settings. I'm also pleased that not following the doctor's post-op care worked out as I had hoped. I highly doubt I would be recovering this quick if I didn't heavily supplement, used Aquaphor and took the meds.
