I have suffered from acne since high school and my struggle continued into young adulthood. Intense cystic acne outbreaks left me with scars . My scars are rolling that had rounded, sloping edges mainly on my cheeks. I went through two cycles of Accutane. As I grew older, my skin started to... READ MORE

I have been doing research and have narrowed it down to 3 treatments (all Fractional co2) I have been reading mixed reviews from all 3 so I am frustrated and do not know what to do. I am 40 years old and my scars seem to be showing more and more as my skin gets older. The ice pick scars have... READ MORE

  10th November 2012 Michelle Watts, Born 26/02/67, Aged 45. Today I went to have an Active FX treatment in Salt Lake City, Utah. This is my personal experience, please remember that everyone is different so your experience although will be similar will not be exactly... READ MORE

For me there were no pros...only cons.My fine lines are still there, I have brown dots all over my face and deep wrinkles all around my eyes where there once were none. I'm 29 years old and it wasn't a neccessity at all to get the procedure done other than erasing the few fine lines I was... READ MORE

I'm a 39 year old female who developed bags under my eyes a few years ago. It was not discoloration, but some puffy and some hollow areas with set in wrinkles (turgor high despite going overboard to remain hydrated). I also have a portwine stain on the right side of my nose, eye, cheek, lip.... READ MORE

Day of procedure: Had procedure at 6:00am. Pics taken at about 2pm. Not uncomfortable at all. But still under the affects of IV sedation and after care instructions and doc were insistent that I took pain meds every 4 hours, which I did, and I slathered my face with post laser Balm (which is...

Hi, I am a 41 years old woman, a mother of 2. I decided to have the Active FX done on my face, having dark spots and blemish on the side of my face which I hated. Being in my teens and twenties I never had this before, my skin was flawless but with life stress and getting older it appear really... READ MORE

I am 38 year old male & was concerned about the decline in my facial skin & bags under the eyes. I have tried a few other treatments incl micro-abrasion and another laser treatment called 'Polaris'. Neither was particularly good. I read a lot on this site about Active... READ MORE

I am only 41 years old and have noticed that the area under my eyes has aged over the past year to the point that it was really bothersome. Wanted to get something non-surgical that would have good results and little downtime. Had it done yesterday afternoon. The Aesthetician was very good... READ MORE

Great Experience! The Surgeon gave me the option of light IV sedation, in addition to the numbing cream. Slept through entire procedure. Followed instructions exactly as stated by medical office professionals, and in 7 days the skin shed off like a snake, revealing "baby butt" like... READ MORE

Had the Active FX done 10 days ago- don't see much improvement at all, although my doctor did say it would take about 3 weeks to see results. Very capable, consciencious doctor that I trust. He was demo-ing the laser so I volunteered. Post-healing experience for both of us. Had lidocaine applied... READ MORE

I just got the Active FX provedure done 3 days ago. My face is still healing. I got the procedure done on my acne scars on my cheeks extending from both my temples to the mid cheek. This will be my second laser this year, but I have had a Co2 done ten years ago and an Erbyium after that. I did... READ MORE

I have been wanting to have my faced sloughed for about 10 years.  I am a 40 year old woman who loved tanning and tanning beds, wearing no protection of course.  I am of Meditteranean descent, so I handled excessive sun very well, hardly ever burning....but, by age 30, I started seeing...

It was very uncomfortable. I received numbing cream, 4 dental blocks and shots around my eyes. The worst part was around the outside of my face. A few times I thought I'd come out of the chair, but I figure I gave birth to a child so I can endure just about anything for the 20 minutes it... READ MORE

My decision to try Active FX was not an easy decision because of the cost.   I was very careful to select a physician who had great knowledge and experience in this area.  I initially contacted my plastic surgeon who performed my reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy... READ MORE

I recommend the Active FX treatment to manage sun damage and the inevitable aging of the skin. After the recovery time, my skin was much more smooth, supple and clear. The treatment was essentially painless with the use of topical anesthetic. The recovery time was as I expected. Dr.... READ MORE

Dr. Siegel performed the FX CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedure about 3 months ago and I am so happy with my results. I have always felt like I have had 'bad' skin and felt self-conscious about it, but I can honestly say that I love looking in the mirror now after this treatment with Dr. Siegel. The... READ MORE

I have been researching doctors and visited Dr. Young's office in Spring for a consultation. I met with an aesthetician Trista Davey. She was very helpful and answered a lot of my questions. Originally I was only interested in Ultherapy but she suggested CO2 ablative fractional laser procedure.... READ MORE

I had the Active FX procedure done Monday by Dr. Steven Jepson in Murray. I chose Dr. Jepson by reading a couple of blogs on here and I did a little bit of research myself (my knowledge is limited on research) and I did not find any thing bad about Dr. Jepson so went with the recommendation of...
