hotrodwow1 saidI had it once. The sun thing is not true. The problem is that it punches little holes in your skin and you are a bloody (literally) mess for three days and then red for about a week. It is suppose to be the best laser procedure since it stimulates collagen production deep in the skin. Only do it if you can take 4 days away from work and going in public.
I agree I had the fraxel FX (I think it was called). The strongest one. It makes you look like you were face bashed for a good 2 weeks. They also told me to stya home for 5 days and that was a bunch of malarkey, it was more like my stay home was really 2 weeks. No BS,
They also told me 9 months.. no sun. ( I didn't listen and I turned out fine. )
I had it done by a dermatologist and of course he is going to say a lot of sunscreen, no sun etc... I have an olive complexion
It is quite bloody, batters your face and you are a mess. They also make you take a valium pre- procedure and shoot your face up with lidocaine so you can stand the pain. You also hold a cooling rod, which blows cold air as they are preforming the procedure.
It was expensive and in the end not worth it
