  1. oh i didn't see you had posted again. i can't believe the clinic didn't know what the brown spots were! pretty much everyone seems to peel in this way. considering you are getting tiny tiny wounds all over your face from the laser (about a million i think), it's obvious there would be tiny tiny scabs. if you are paying for that facial following the treatment i don't think its so necessary...try a toner next time first. also, i also have the issue of them not peeling as fast around my forehead an
  2. Its not advisable to hasten the exfloliation of the brown spots, as that may inhibit the formation of clearer skin. As another forumer has suggested, its best to let it drop off by itself. If the appearance is quite obvious, maybe u can try some concealer. What is important is to use a good moisturiser so that the skin is in the best possible healing condition. I am somewhat satisfied with my 30% improvement so far. My last one seems to have better results than the first four, so I am hopefu
  3. Thanks, I'll try that. Another important tip for everyone is to check the ingrediants. If talc is listed - don't buy it! It's very drying and means the makeup is not pure mineral. Cheers LC
  4. Hi Tanand2000, Thanks for your response. I thought it was different to the bronzing normally described! Can you tell me if it will disappear on its own, or should I help it along? It's now been roughly 72 hrs since my treatment and I'm meant to go to work tomorrow, but so can't looking like this. There are hundreds of them, and very noticable even from a distance. I think I'll be happy with 30-40%...I guess you can never say until you reach the end though. Can I ask if you are happy w
  5. Ylem, you do have the right to let the board know that it didn't work for you, but I'm with Zonk on this one. I don't recall anywhere where Zonk has referred to fraxel as the holy grail or even implied it, though most of your posts pretty much imply it's the devil's work. I come to these posts for objective observations by people in reponse to their treatments. I appreciate it didn't work for you and have taken that into consideration when I made my decision to go ahead with treatment (yes,
  6. I can definately relate to smokers acne. I won't go into my smoking history, other than to say don't ever start because it's really hard to stop. On that note...I have stopped roughly 4 times in my life, ranging from 1 month to 2 years, and my skin DID clear up tremendously. Clear pores, no blackheads, no monthly breakouts. It's great. As soon as I fall off the bandwagon...hideously clogged pores, hundreds of blackheads, lots of red marks and very oily skin that just sits on top. As always
  7. Hello everyone Like many others, I have quietly followed all the posts here on fraxel information and eveyone's experiences with it so far. I myself had my first treatment done 48 hrs ago. My face is still very red and swollen (oh...my eyes!) but my biggest concern at the moment is regarding bronzing. I had a full face treatment, and all over my face a small brown dots...the best way of describing them would be to compare it to scraping your skin over concrete and the little broken scabs that
