Laser Skin Resurfacing

Hey ladies,

Any of you had laser skin resurfacing?? it's a procedure that i really want to get, just nervous and want to find an experienced doctor. I have heard of people getting burned from the lasers.

So if any of you have gotten it done i would love to hear your experience and results!!

thanks ladies!

I have resurfaced my face 4 times with the Fraxel re:store and LOVE IT!!! It is quite important to find someone who knows the machine and understands your skin needs well. Fraxel re:store is an erbium laser and does not take the outer layer of skin off, it only removes a portion in the form of microscopic dots. The Fraxel reair is the heavier CO2 laser that has a longer downtime but you also get a more significant result with one treatment of that laser whereas it takes 3-5 to get something very similar with the other. I prefer the re:store only because the pain is tolerable and the downtime is only a couple days compared to a week or more.

My skin has changed 100% from my treatments. I used to have quite dark freckles (I'm fair) and lots of sundamage. Now I have nearly invisible freckles (I don't use bleaching agents) and have no fine lines or visible sun damage on my skin.

I can't speak highly enough about my own experiences. I also perform the procedure on others (I'm an aesthetic RN) and have had great results with my own clients. Let me know if you have any other questions, and I may be able to help you find someone where you live who has the experience you need.
