I have striae around my thighs and I will marry soon so I want to try another method to relieve me from this long-lasting problem >.<
I've read some review on fraxel laser, negatives and positives, but since I wouldn't have it on my face, why not?
It costs me 6 million rupiahs for one treatment (I've only done once) and my doctor said I can't have it too often. He called it fraxel but it turned out a fractional CO2 laser when I read what written on the machine. And just now I just realized that Fraxel Re:pair is an ablative laser that use CO2. So I thought maybe this one what I've got last friday.
Actually I want to have in Erha clinic since they have 2 kind of fraxel machine (ablative and non ablative). But I only can have treatment in Jakarta (kemanggisan). I do have many plans to get to Jakarta but got suspended because of many reasons. So I thought maybe God doesn't want me to go to Erha, then I searched like crazy about fraxel in Bandung. And I found Dermato Skin Care which placed near my house, not too near but I know that place so well. The doctor also very nice.
It hurts. It does really hurt.
They gave me anesthetic cream 2 hours before the treatment, well almost 3 hours. I had to wait until the doctor finished a surgery. Somehow the logic is not too different from derma stamp, but maybe this one a hundred times better *I hope*. Now, 4 days after the treatment mt redness still stubbornly on my skin, but much less. They're pinkish right now. But last night it was itching so I can't sleep well. Some places also hurt, maybe swelled. Then just now, I read some negatives effect on some people after fraxel. Some of them had the redness for years >.< OMG frightened me so much. My doctor said the redness would be gone. I have to protect my skin from the sunlight, but that's not a problem since I wear long trouser every day.
They said the result wouldn't be seen right away but it takes some weeks or maybe months. I plan to have another treatment on august, I hope this redness would go away asap. I would give another review when I see the result of this treatment.
