right cheek day 2

The wounds are not so bloody any more; but they still hurt and look like hell! I can't believe that I actually went out with my face looking like this! Everyone was looking at me like i'm some kind of freak. The looks hurt initially but I got used to them pretty fast. Anyway, the wounds kind of reminded me of how I'd looked like when I had cystic acne. The bad ol' days.

But I had to check with the doc if my wounds are normal, and I had to stock up on super-strong cosmetics just so that I can report for work on Monday.

Hope that scabs will form so that I can at least apply make-up. Can't afford not to turn up for work and can't afford to freak out my colleagues.

    It's been about 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure and I'm not really happy with the results. In fact, I'm starting to wish that I haven't gone for the subcision-erbium laser procedure.

    The flattening of the scars is really quite minimal after the bruising and the swelling subsided.

    My scars used to be soft, rolling scars with very little redness. Now the scars are very red, and very hard. Some scars have even become deeper, and I seem to be getting some keloid scars!
