If you haven’t read Part 1 of my review on Fractional CO2 Laser, click here.
Here, I will be showing you the progress on my face after a week, and after two months following the treatment.
As you can see in the picture, there was a “net pattern” all over my face in the days after my first treatment session. I have to admit that my face looked bad, and I had to wear a face mask to hide it. The doctor said it was okay to wear make-up after treatment, as long as the product does not contain acid. But I still thought it was quite inconvenient as the makeup may look botched because of my rough skin. So I opted to go make-up free for about two weeks. I only wore sunblock, as Dr Lashela advised me to not go under the sun for too long, and to always wear moisturiser and sunblock for protection. This is to protect my skin from further burning and pain.
The red dots were actually my pimples, which turned even redder after the treatment. You can see bruises on my chin as a result of the needle-like treatment that was part of the process.
Despite the rough texture of my skin, I felt no pain on the second day. However, the net pattern was very obvious, and there were bruises on some parts of my face.
On day 5, the net pattern on my face was becoming less obvious. As you can see, my skin has gotten a lot brighter now, and I have started to wear eye makeup.
The skin on my chin was starting to peel, which meant I was going to have new skin soon. The peeling process is a must because it helps to replace my rough skin with new smooth skin.
I was advised not to peel the skin off myself, as it is going to interrupt the healing process. Just let the peelings fall off by itself.
Other than that, the redness of my pimples has also started to fade. However, the treatment does not get rid of active pimples or acne. The treatment’s main purpose is to help smoothen out wrinkles and scars. I opted for the treatment because I wanted to smoothen out my acne scars.
On the 8th day after I went for the treatment, the net pattern across my face has disappeared almost entirely. I didn’t even realise that the peeling has come off, because I did not notice any peelings other that what occurred on the 5th day.
I did not experience any pain throughout the past week, despite being warned earlier by Doctor Lashela. I guess I have tough skin…lol
You can see that my skin has gotten better and my acne scars are less obvious. I still get pimples every now and then, but they usually just go away by themselves. I was not allowed to wear any skincare that contained harsh chemicals or acid, so I depended on Rosken moisturiser, which I bought at Watson’s. It is mild and did not contain any harsh chemicals.
I also used Biore milk sunblock. It is light and is absorbed quickly. For cleansing, I used Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser because it was recommended by many doctors as a mild cleanser for sensitive skin.
My skin was looking bright and the depth of my scars has decreased. I am happy with the results. I can wear my foundation by now, and people have said that my skin has improved a lot since Day 1. The bruises have disappeared almost completely as well.
Now after two months, my skin is much smoother and more radiant, and there have been no after-effects from the treatment. I have less dark scars on my cheek too. I am very happy with the treatment, and I really got the best service while I was there, considering that it was sponsored.
