  1. I just had my eighth smoothbeam, and my scars have been filling in a lot over the last couple treatments. I had read somewhere on here a while back that smoothbeam does un-tether the scarring. I don't know if it actually does, but I'm over seven months in on this and I've learned to be patient with it. Slooow process, but it is working for me. (along with TCA complex) I sure know what you mean about being a wrinkly snake Maya (using the Complex)..I did a TCA Complex peel about a week befo
  2. I would have to agree with flightmight . Do you think maybe your just noticing scars you never thought you had? I know thats what happened to me when I first started SB. (I just had my 7th treatment yesterday) When I first had it done I was really looking close at my skin afterwards, and was shocked to see so many scars I never noticed before. But I know smoothbeam didn't cause it...they were always there. - mike
  3. Hi vaudor, I had CO2 done about five years ago and remember looking like that too for about ten days. I only used vaseline and vinegar and water for the first ten days, and the swelling eventually went down. I know what your going through and it's not fun...I remember being horrified when I first saw myself without the bandages, but it was amazing how quickly the swelling went down after that.. I've never used emu oil, so I'm not sure about that...but it sounds normal what your going through.
  4. I've done smoothbeam at 14, 14.5, and 15 once. All with no problems with blistering. I think your skin gets used to the higher settings when you work your way up to it.
  5. =; I'm not sure I could do that even if I pretended it was that candy that kinda looks like cat poop rolled in kitty litter.......
  6. I'd eat cat poop rolled in kitty litter...(hell, my dog seems to like it...)
  7. I know it's not a product, but Smoothbeam should be in the list as well. It's relatively affordable and it improves the skin the right way by doing it gradually over time.
  8. Hey Sopwidth... I have my fifth treatment at the Edina office today...I think this will be my last with them, and I may try the Spa Med place...$5oo is just too expensive, and I really don't think there's much skill involved with the procedure. But the Edina doc did tell me that their Smoothbeam machine had a software upgrade enabling it to go to level 16. I guess some Smoothbeams only go to 14 (without upgrade). I had my last treatment on a setting of 14.5, and since that didnt mess me up
  9. To Aslan- I've had the same thing happen with me too (breaking out)...I think your right about the purging. But stick with it because it works...I'm on smoothbeam #4 and it just keeps getting better and better. I've had some pretty big scars show some very good improvement lately, and my skin tone is the best it's been in years. You just have ti stick with it
