Hello,
I had my last laser treatment a few days ago (the third treatment). This time, I think I may see a difference, because there is a LOT of bruising. Nothing like before, where you could really not tell anything was done. My Dr offered to do a quick free treatment in 5 weeks, since the other two treatments did nothing, and I cannot afford to have any more treatments. Looks like I am in hiding this week with antibiotic cream on my face. :)

I'll let you know.
Jen

Jen, I hope if you get the additional treatment in 5 weeks that it is finally working. If nothing changes from this time and you go in 5 weeks I think you should ask for an addition one since twice your treatments didn't work. I still would like to see a recent picture of how you have less red dots than before. Maybe you can do this after the bruising has faded in a few days. I sure hope this works for you then maybe others will try this. I don't have that perticular problem so I don't have to live with it. I forgot who the guy was that was getting a different proceedure. Wonder how his face is doing? I don't have time at the moment to check back on previous emails. Maybe he will respond on his own when he reads this. I hope he is having great progress. Scarry stuff.

hi beautiful jen,
it is good to hear that after all your efforts you may see good results. You should get cute bandaids... Elmo or Little Nemo. 5 extra treatments - that's quite generous. Regardless of the results you are beautiful!

Heal well my friend,

Hey Jen
Glad to see that you are see some results from your treatments! I hope you continue to see improvement everyday.

Of course to all of us you are gorgeous, but we all see things in ourselves that others don't. I said something about my "no lip" face the other day and a friend piped up with "say what? You got lips!" I think she needs to get her eyes checked. :D

Big Hugs,
Janey

Hi Jen, I sure hope this works for you. I am really rooting for you. I have this mess, some kind of rash all over my legs. I have had two biopsies done by two differant Dermo doctor's and they still don't know what it is. Oh well I will continue to wear pants. I guess it's good Fall is here. Take care and I hope all goes well for you.
