IPL, Affirm and Thermage lasers

Recommended Posts

Now that my skin is much worse from these 'procedures', I was wondering if anyone knows of something that can reverse some of the damage done by these lasers? Damage such as...large pores, 100's more lines, sagging skin, scars, etc.

Co2 laser or the newer Fraxel pepair, will strip the old damaged skin or maybe stemcell injections to revive and restore all the current damage. Im thinking off these 2 options,Im in the same boat as you :(

Thank you. I had been doing research on stemcell injections and PRP treatments (Platlet Rich Plasma). So far though, the dermatologist that I'm seeing has me putting some stuff on my face (can't ever remember the name of it) twice a day. It's something she prescribes for people who have acne scars. She said there's no way my skin could take anymore lasers. I hope others read all my posts and stay away from Thermage and Affirm lasers and never let a "technician" do any laser work...only a qualified/certified/reputable dermatologist...with a lot of research behind it all.

I am currently getting Photo Rejuv and Microdermabrasion.... I wouldnt recommend Micro though, the skin specialist was so harsh that my skin and acne is now ten times worse than what it was going in.

Ive had phot rejuv twice and it made my marks really really red and more noticable...

The microdermabrasion went over my acne and made it red and very sore...its a mess atm.

Its hasnt done much for my blackheads either, I have lots on my nose, large pores too....

I also have had Ipl hair laser removal above my cheek area, it makes the marks already there, really red.

my Viss beauty IPL machine ( *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules. * ) took care of my scarring and for the price of the unit i definitely got my moneys worth! just make sure you order the replacement lamp that is for the Acne treatment, So fantastic, and cuts the price of the clinic in half! plus it works for body hair too, so yea definitely worth checking it out!
