  2. I just had the Portrait PSR3 done at level 2. I had the procedure done with only a topical. Painful but bearable if done in 5 second or less runs. Face is red now after treatment. Expect 6-7 days before going back to work. I now have much smaller pores on my face. I have never seen IPL, Levulan, or Fraxel have this kind of impact just after the treatment!

I spaced the treatments 9-12 days apart. I completed my last treatment 6 weeks ago. With the exception of the first one, I must admit that they hurt allot.
