    I absolutely loved the old moisturizer. I had a stock pile of it and just reorder some more only to find out it's not the same. I REALLY hope they bring back the old stuff. The old formula was super light and gentle, calming, and had a nice smell. It was one of the only moisturizers I had ever found to work on my very sensitive skin without giving me a rash or making me breakout. The new stuff makes me itch, doesn't smell the best, feels like there is a residue on your skin, and has a odd yellow
  2. Please don't try lasers! I had some really bad results from Co2 resurfacing last summer. I didn't have Fraxel Co2 but the traditional Co2 laser which is stronger. One doc suggested the fraxel one to me, but I had done fraxel restore a few years back with no results and then side effects started to appear around 6 months after the procedures (loss of fat and skin elasticity, enlarged pores, and some faint, but permanent, redness around my mouth). So, I was pretty much against anything fraxel and
  3. I read a lot about what, if any, topicals (vitamin a, e, copper peptides, ect.) to use after rolling/stamping and I found mixed advice. Some doctors and sites said that what you put on after was practically as important as the rolling , but other said not to put anything on your skin because its being absorded directly into the blood stream at very concentrated levels and is bad for your body and stresses your skin. They also said it really doesn't help that much and its more important to focus
  4. Don't use lasers they ruin your skin. I had both fraxel restore done, and traditional Co2 resurfacing. After about 6 months to a year both caused enlarged pores, loss of fat and skin elasticity, and some perment redness(redness not so bed with fraxel but a lot with Co2). The faxel plumed my skin for about a month after each and looked great so I really though it was working, but after they were all done (4 treatments) my scars just sank back into place with no improvement and 6 monthe latter I
  5. I would say that you should really do it on your own. It's easy, and way chaeper, and safe as long as you follow intructions and take care of your roller. I have to warn you, it does hurt a lot, though it does get more tollerable after you're used to it. As far as using the genuine roller, that's just silly and a way to charge you more. Just make sure its sharp and sterile and mabye don't use one with titanium needles, as the needles are wider than on most rollers. Titanium ones are better for o
  6. Up front I just want to say sorry this is so long but I hope you find some helpful stuff in it as I truly know how you feel. Not sure if you're still checking this but I also had some pretty bad results from Co2 resurfacing last summer. I didn't have Fraxel Co2 but the traditional Co2 laser which is stronger.

    none! and don't get false hope by reading reviews of people that aren't a full year out from this procedure Expensive at $900 a treatment x 4 Doesn't work fat atrophy loss of skin elasticity permantent redness enlarged pores I very much agree with Anonymous from La Jolla CA. Don't reveiw this procedure untill you're at least 6 months out, but more like a year or futher. These lasers plump your scarrs for about a month after each session and honestly your face doe

    Co2 maybe shallowed some of my deeper scars, but sooo many more cons than pros, including more scars. Fraxel none I have had both fraxel restore (4 at $900 each) and traditional co2 resurfacing ($3,200)and both only made me hate my face more. Fraxel didn't work at all enlarged pores made scars widen caused fat atrophy caused permanent redness around nose and smile lines Co2 long and gross down time hyper and hypo pigmentation&
