My Pixel Laser Experience

Good morning everyone! As some might now, I had undergone Pixel Laser last month. Why? It's not really noticeable in my pictures, because I have makeup on, but without makeup, I actually have very rough cheeks due to my childhood acne. I've always been ashamed of them and now I'm finally doing something about it. Yey! 

The thing about Pixel, is that even though you see results right after the scabs fall off, you only see the maximum result after two months, because that's when your skin fully heals. The downtime? Around 6 days. Yikes. I looked like a monster during that time. On several occasions, I still went out and worked even with my ugly face because hey, what am I supposed to do? I can't not work for 6 days. Putting on makeup will help, but it can never cover the texture. And once the scabs started falling off, makeup or no makeup, I looked like a peeling monster anyway. Haha.

I'll discuss the downtime in detail.

Day 1 - The day of the Pixel Laser itself. Right after my procedure, my face hurt for 2 hours. I had an unexpected gig that day, so I still went out. No makeup was allowed so I looked terrible. My whole face was pixelated and it was reddish brown. My friend described it as though nuclear waste exploded on my face. Haha. That night, some of my pores started bleeding. Anything I apply on my face was uber painful.

Day 2 - My face had turn brown. Makeup is already allowed during Day 2 and onwards. Anything I applied on my face still hurt.

Day 3 - My face turned into really thick, pixelated scabs.

Day 4 - The scabs started to fall off.

Day 5 - Everywhere, the scabs were falling off like crazy. Not pretty.

Day 6 - Left over scabs still falling off.

Day 7 - I actually look decent enough to go out. Haha.

I actually noticed just a little difference in my skin, since I stared at it everyday. When I took pictures, though, I was surprised. There was actually a big difference. Wanna see?

Don't focus on the zits. I breakout occasionally. Haha. Don't mind the date on the picture. I forgot to adjust the time in my cam.

Right Cheek

There's a big difference on my right cheek right? I'm happy with the results and I'm surely doing this again.

Thanks so much for sharing this!! I also have some acne scars on my cheeks a lot like yours. I've been wanting to try this procedure, but somehow I feel like now isn't the right time for me yet, haha! Ewan ko pa kung kailan ang right time.:P

Crystal said...

catmare, NP! hope it helped :)

twinsouls, yeah i've been reading good reviews about that. it seems like a nice product.

Crystal said...

gale, bakit naman weird ang reaction ng face mo? gurl, you don't need pixel. kaya naman ng tca peels mo yung skin mo. mine kasi are crater scars and large pores.

soapaholic, if your skin is like mine, this is a big help :)
