I have them and after sitting through the education sessions in the doctor’s office, I opted NOT to get it done. Basically it’s like someone scalded your face off. They have blistering, pustules, and their skin is horribly raw, bleeding in some places. It looks like they have been boiled. Scared the heck out of me. I was told it took 6 weeks to heal. The after results didn’t look all that fantastic either. I had to watch videos and look at pictures and whatnot.

I can tell you from experience (I’m now 35) that you can lessen your scars greatly on your own. If you’ll get yourself on an alternating regimen of over the counter alpha and beta hydroxy cleansers, peels, and microdermabrasion over time your scars will begin to fade. Email me if you want the names of what I have used.
