“I had the Fractora laser procedure one week ago and have been nothing but amazed by my results!! I’m in my early 30’s and my skin concerns were acne scarring, combination skin, enlarged pores and a mild loss in elasticity. My goal was to be able to wear less makeup and on occasion be able to be totally makeup free.
The procedure: For the most part I was numb due to the topical cream that was applied 30 minutes before the procedure began. I couldn’t feel anything other than pressure and some discomfort on my forehead and chin. Casey was attentive to my needs and helped me to easily get through the exam. The total time of my procedure from numbing to finish was around an hour. Directly after the procedure my skin felt as if I had a sun burn. It was red, hot and mildly swollen. By that evening most of the redness and swelling were gone and I had no discomfort or pain. I was compliant and followed the directions given to me. Which meant keeping Aquaphor on my skin for about 2 days as just moisturizer on my skin for the 3rd day. I went back to my typical routine by day 4, which included SPF and a full face of make-up.
I am totally amazed of my results after only my first treatment. I have seen some improvement with my overall complexion, pore size and have noticed some skin tightening just in this first week. I was told that I can expect to see continued improvements for up to a month afterwards. I was so surprised to already be receiving compliments on my skin from other people because I never thought that “good skin” was a possibility for me. I’m already so thrilled that I’m greatly looking forward to my next 2 treatments. Although I know everyone’s skin concerns can be different, I am so happy that I finally decided to go ahead with this amazing treatment.”
