It was really not too bad. During the procedure, I first felt tightness, followed by heat. At times, areas of my skin were less numb and the laser was more uncomfortable, especially towards the end where I was squirming and definitely ready for it to be over. After the procedure I was given water to mist my skin with, while cooling it with air from a cooling machine. There are creams and ointments to use during the first week, and all this is explained to you. Sun avoidance/protection is necessary for 4-8 weeks after the procedure, and I could tell why walking to my car. The sun was exquisitely painful the first time it touched my face (not now). After I got home, I felt progressively more swollen and a little uncomfortable. I had a few areas with a little blood showing through. You have to sleep in a recliner the first night to avoid lying on one side and getting uneven swelling-this is not the most comfortable thing to do at 57! Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
