To be fair, you're promoting a specific person so yes, you (or that Dr) would gain something by lying, WHICH I'M NOT SAYING YOU ARE! I have to emphasize on if it worked on you, amazing, as you're the only person who really knows! I personally still can't judge based on those pictures, and I'm gonna have to ask other people reading, is it just me, am I crazy lol? I'd genuinely love to know the popular opinion on pictures like these.
If I understand correctly, that electro damage was from 20 years ago and it greatly improved in one laser treatment? I was told by my dermatologist that you have to start treatments as soon as possible otherwise they won't be effective... Do you see why I'm extremely skeptical about ANYTHING in this industry?
PS Please don't take me probing you with questions the wrong way, I have absolutely no ill intent, I'll gladly shut up if anyone wants me to.
Any good doctor can get good results with laser. Doesn't have to be mine. Wrinkles don't form overnight from any cause, but (some) lasers can be powerful enough to remove most or all of them, sometimes stripping away decades of sun damage. It's possible to get quite good improvement in even one session, but it depends on what you are doing and how much downtime you have to spare. If you were indeed told that by a dermatologist, you were told wrong. I had electrolysis from 1996 (as a teenager) and finished my face around 2002, though I think the damage was done by one operator towards the latter end of my treatment.
At this point I regret sharing my story. I've been in private contact with Dee for years discussing options on how to treat the pebbeled skin and wrinkles I developed after my overtreatment, and I shared my (failed) experiment with microneedling with her and then my more successful one with the Erbium laser. It was suggested that others might benefit from my experience because I'm certainly not the only woman, trans or no, who's had skin issues after aggressive facial clearing. I figured posting my experience on here might be helpful to people who had issues like mine. And now I find myself basically being accused of posting fake or misleading pictures and of being a liar trying to promote a particular doctor.
If you are scared of dermatology/plastic surgery and are determined to scream "fake!" at every picture you see, then I can't help you. I am pretty sure not even an in-person exam would convince somehow so determined to suspect others of deception. However, I am not "the only person that knows" as I am well known to several on this forum, and of course the people in my private life have been impressed with my results.
For anybody on here who's actually been skin damaged and needs help, I'm sorry but at this point I no longer feel comfortable discussing this topic on here. My final words of advice would be to research heavily any treatments you plan undergo, and to avoid deep "full field" resurfacing. I had ablative fractional erbium, around 300 microns deep, and it healed fine. My skin isn't perfect but now I look like a normal 30+ year old woman as opposed to a 30+ woman with a 60+ upper lip and chin. It's really been life changing, and I am sorry that I chose to share something so personal that I have been struggling with for a long time only to be accused of being a fake.
