Today my face was incredibly tight from where the skin had started its healing process by scabbing. I did find it hard to have facial expressions, however I did make it through a day at work regardless.
The scabbing had gotten darker and the swelling was the worst. There was swelling all over, however my eyes were the most obvious. I would say this was the most challenging day, but mostly down to the swelling, I could cope with the scabbing.
Most of the obvious swelling had gone down by this point, my scabbing was now starting to flake off and the redness was going down. There was still swelling around the eyes, however this wasn’t as bad as the previous days. My face felt fine by this point despite the scabbing that remained.
Most of the scabbing washing of in the shower, what remained was the forehead and top of the cheek bone/ under eye area. My eyes were still slightly swollen but nothing too apparent. The new exposed skin was slightly pink, but that was to be expected given the treatment of removing the top layers.
All the swelling had gone now and the scabs were flaking off. The last bit to go was the top of the forehead. This is likely to be because this is where the least movement is, which encourages the flaking.
All back to normal now. I had a few breakouts that came to the surface due to turning over the cells. These settled back down once I was back on my ZO products for a week or so.
ONE MONTH ON
My skin was now glowing which makes me so happy. I am getting regular comments on how bright it looks and I am still wearing no makeup! The changes in my pore size I was thrilled to and there is a definite reduction in my nose to mouth lines. My texture is improved and overall I think this is a fantastic result for just one treatment. I will continue to have a second treatment, albeit slightly less aggressive so that I can push my results even further.
