Fractional Co2 Laser Day 209: Dermaroller and 10% Salicylic Acid Peel

It has been about 100 days (Fractional Co2 Laser Day 111) since my last update about my skin. To repeat, I have undergone four Fractional Co2 Laser Treatments for my enlarged pores on nose. I think Co2 Laser is not a good way in the long run. Imagine 12 treatments in a year every month. It cost a lot of money! In addition, the treatment is too aggressive and might be harmful to your skin. Do not forget the treatment also involves a few days of downtime. During those days, I just stayed at home and did not meet anybody. People would ask me, “what’s wrong with you face?” I did not know how to explain. If I told them I had undergone Co2 Laser Treatment and they would ask again, “what for?” and they never stop asking questions. I hate this. Even I gave my explanation, they could never understand. It is just like how some people do not understand people who pursue or engage in high-risk cosmetic surgery that change them and make them look like a different person. Fractional Co2 Laser does help but not much, as you can see, the result does not last long. Pores will expand or enlarge if the sebum trapped in the pores again. Many people said that my skin has improved a lot, no more acne and pimples. If you look at my skin closely enough, you will find some laser marks or tiny pinhole scars. I still have a lot of blackheads on my nose, uneven skin tone and some discoloration spots. I am not upset rather quite positive. There is a will, there is a way. Anything you really want, you can attain, if you really go after it. I believe my skin can be better, no matter how many years it would take. Besides my daily routine, I am trying some home remedies such as Dermaroller and Chemical Peels. I use 1.00mm and 2.00mm Dermaroller alternately once in two weeks’ time and 10% Salicylic Acid Peel once a week. 10% Salicylic Acid Peel is too mild for me. I have bought a bottle of 30% Salicylic Acid Peel on eBay yesterday. I will write a full review about it. I want to prove that there is no need to spend hundreds of dollars at salons or specialist cosmetic clinics for expensive facial treatments. Dermaroller and chemical peels are widely available online on eBay or other online stores. They are quite affordable and you can use them regularly at home. Wish me luck and I will succeed one day.
