    Does anyone know anything about this??

    If you've had it done, what was your experience like?

    I am considering getting this (for old acne discoloration) and would like some input.

    Thank you beautiful BDW ladies!

      Funny - I'm going for a consult on Friday! i'll let you know what i think after that. FI works in a Dermatology office so I'll get the real scoop.

        Well Kamay, I had the laser treatment done yesterday. i have what looks like a major bruise on my face, which the doctor said will go away soon. it hurt more than i expected it to, but if it got rid of the big red mark on my face it have been worth it. If you don't mind walking around with the bruising...I have to keep explaining to people what it is.

          I'm not sure if I had the same type of laser treatment you're getting but I recently had a scar treated on my chest, right below my neck. I'm very fair and even after 6 years my scar was still pretty red.
          I had laser treatment and now my scar is the same colour as the rest of my skin and blends in a lot more.
          To me it felt like having an elastic band snapped against me. You can put on topical numbing cream to help with the pain but I felt it was pointless. It's over quickly depending on how large the area is that is being treated.

          Bruising was bad for me as well but it was worth it in the end. It took about 5-6 treatments for the colour to be where I wanted it.

          Hope that helps!
