Since starting my ReAura log, I’ve met some fantastic people online who have e-mailed me questions and kept in touch. A few months ago, a young man got in touch with questions about treating his chest which was quite sun damaged. He’s been keeping me up to date with his treatment progress and I asked him to write a couple of paragraphs about his experiences for me to publish as I thought it would be handy to hear about some first hand experience both from a male’s perspective, but also regarding how the ReAura performs on areas other than the face. Here are his thoughts:
“I purchased the ReAura in November 2011 and have been treating as per directions ever since. I use it on the face, neck, hands and chest and the main reason for my purchase was to treat sun damage. The chest area was the first to get treatment as I was unsure about using it on the face and having the redness the next day (I’m male so no make-up). My skin isnt too sensitive so I maxed it up to level 3 from the start and like everybody else who has written a review my skin went red like a bad sunburn and stayed that way for about 20 hours after.
The upshot is…the more I used it the more my skin became accustomed to the laser and now the redness is gone by the following morning (I use it in the evenings). The results? Well, I used it 3 time on my hands and the results were almost instantaneous. Mild level sun spots reduced by a good 50% in visibility. Because of this I have neglected to continue the treatment on my hands and focused on other parts of my body (face and chest). The results here are proving to be a bit slower (more damage in these areas) but at the same results are visible….I just reckon I need maybe twice or three times the treatment recommended. The problem with this is replacing the creams and gels….which are saucey enough price wise…about €45.
So, overall, i think the ReAura has improved the overall texture of my skin and reduced sun spot visibility but not within the 16 treatments.”
Huge thanks to my male friend for sharing his experiences. I’ve just done another treatment so my next log will be up in the next couple of days.
