    Is what you’re talking about like a chemical peel or laser treatments? I think we did a little more detail…

    I don’t know much about it. Is this being recommended by a dermatologist? If it’s just for large pores, have you tried other methods first? I think resurfacing is more for things like scars isn’t it?

    Out of curiosity – have you tried Retin A micro?

    Are you eligible for photo rejuventation? It’s a less abrasive method of removing dark spots etc. My mom recently had a few sessions done and looks great. Also, have you looked into microdermabrasion facials? 

    $2000 sounds like a high price to pay to not be guaranteed results/ worried about not healing. These other methods won’t give you those fears.

    have you tried the less extreme stuff already? if not, i’d say give something else a try before going for this.

    I haven’t tried Fraxel, but I did get 6 microdermabrasion/facials in the months leading up to my wedding and i loved the results. I had acne scars that became a lot less noticeable.  And that package was $750. Very much worth it.

    @junebride2014:  I just did some quick research on Fraxel and I have to say, the results don’t sound like it’s worth the money. A lot of people said it showed little to no results when it comes to scars. I would look into other options.

    I looked into laser skin surgery earlier this year, I had my consultation and even started the skin care treatment before hand (then I got pregnant).  1 session will not fix the problem, you need multiple sessions and your skin will get really red and sensitive during the process. You also have to treat the actual skin problem before, during and after with the appropriate skin care, or else the acne will come back.

    It’s a brutal process and I am glad I did not go through with it.  I’m actually using skin care products right now that have helped me more than anything ever has in the 19 years I’ve had acne. (I’ve tried every prescribed cream, gel and a bunch of pills from dermatologists). Not trying to sell or promote so I won’t go into anything else. Feel free to PM me if you want.

    Good luck!

    @junebride2014:  acne scarring? I guess it really depends how severe it is. I had some discoloration from acne but it cleared up readily with clnique spot serum. Tough call though. I think you should talk it out with your dermatologist. :

    @junebride2014:  Have you consulted with a doctor yet? Asking us will only get you a lot of unqualified opinions. A dermatologist will be able to answer your questions best.
