  1. I feel like the replies posted in this thread prove that people need to, individually, do major research about the procedures they undergo or even the topicals they use. One reason people have had so little success is that they try to use inferior productsto try to treat very specific and complicated problems. I don't have much sympathy for people complaining about a lack of results after only 2 or 3 fraxel treatments, when it is already known you should have 4-5 before even assessing your resu
  2. Hi guys, Well healing is stillgoing on right now. For the most part, I am still very red. Looks like an extreme sunburn. My scars have definitely reappeared a little, but there still seems to be a major improvement hiding behind all this redness! I'm trying to still be skeptical about the improvement,considering all the many let downs of the past that members have gone through, but maybe I shouldn't be. Maybe this new generation of lasers really does work. Maybe my young age has allowed the pr
  3. Everyone fails to mention that it can plump up your skin in the long run and with continued use make your scars look better. I guess there are a lot of variable, but for me, I think it helped a little. Nothing major, but definitely something.
  4. I went to Skin Nirvana in Anaheim and the doctor's name was Stephen Han. The price he charged was $3950. After contacting all of the doctors around the area, I found there were many that had ActiveFX, but not many that had DeepFX, which is what you want to treat scars. The only other doctor I was considering was Dr. Abregel in Santa Monica, which was actually much closer to me. Dr. Abregel charged a $5000 and charged $250 for just a consult, which could be used towards your procedure. He was m
  5. Today, well, I'm still healing. Redness is still very strong. I mean it looks like a bad sunburn but how long will it be like this? I feel like forever, but then again it still hasnt even been a full week since treatment (6 days including day of) so maybe I'm just wishing for too much too fast. But ya, i'll keep you updated. PS Who likes this linear mode of viewing threads? its unpractical. Those who don't switch it back to classic view mode in the option box. And for those who don't eve know

  7. Hmmm... an actual practitioner here... Well let me see if I can import my knowledge to add on then. I thought another critical but less known about difference between the two lasers is the way the actual laser is delivered. DeepFX implements a Ultapulse meaning that it gives one continuous laser with the same power throughout the time being zapped. While the Fraxel Re:Pair uses a Superpulse, I believe, so the laser zaps at its highest intensity first but then its power decreases as the zapping
  8. eh might as well lock this thread. i've posted way too much in the other thread on this treatment. i'd rather keep everything in the same spot. ask anything you want in this thread http://www.acne.org/messageboard/Just-had-...O2-t184681.html
  9. Haha I feel like I am looking at a ghost with your pictures. Should I black out mine to make sure people don't notice me? Eh, I don't care that much I think. EDIT: Almost forgot to say, your skin looks fine. Looks just like mine on my cheeks however it just looks MUCH MUCH scarrier (no offense haha) since you have it all over your face. I am just glad that we are sharing our experiences thoroughly right now. I understand why people stop coming here after they feel like they have healed their
  10. Oh, I forgot to mention I only got DeepFX done on my cheeks. Considering the pain and the fact that I really had no reason to do it on my forehead since my scarring was really all on my cheeks. I've never really gotten acne in that region. I did take a shower the next day, but I did not wash my hair. I left that region alone and left the door open so as to not heat the room up to much, although I do not know if either of those actions really make a difference. In terms of the blood, I wouldn't
  11. http://picasaweb.google.com/SouthpoleSp67/...XBeforeAndAfter There is an album. It is definitely incomplete but it will satisfy many of you I'm sure. I want to preface anyone who vies an album with this caution: THESE AREN'T THE END RESULTS. First, the redness and swellling (although this I feel has mostly subsided) is definitely not letting you see the full extent of the scarring. It could be better or worse than it appears, so this is not necessarily a bad thing. Secondly, like all laser
  12. I'm doing a full photo journal. Finally pretty much all of the skin peeled off yesterday and now I am just pink. Results look absolutely amazing at this point, but I expect to see them fall off as there is probably still swelling and the pink skin tone makes them less noticeable as well. I will begin to post photos by tomorrow as the UCLA game is today, and since I can actually go out and just look like a severe sunburn I have to go see it with some friends. Been cooped up way too long.
  13. When you say your procedure took 2-3 hours are you including the time it took for the numbing cream to take effect? For me, the actual lasering part of the procedure lasted about only 30 minutes. And don't worry about the bleeding. I freaked out as well because at first it looked like someone had rubbed sand paper all over my face! For the most part, the bleeding should stop by tomorrow. It heals rather fast actually: even faster than a strong TCA peel I had done. Try to stay in an air condit
  14. So, my the scars that I treated are now visible to me. My skin didn't necessarily peel as much as it did, as another poster has previously said, slosh off. From all of the Aquaphor that I was told to put in, the skin was so moisturized that it would really just fall off if you brushed your fingers against it. It was quite interesting and amazing too be honest. Ok, so now for the semi-results part. The scars are, yes, still visible. BUT they are VASTLY improved from what I can already see. Compa
