A month ago i had ActiveFX Lite. I now have bags/loose puffy skin, closest to the inner corner of my eyes. One eye is worse than than the other. It also seems like I now have no fat left and it looks like I have very bad darkness in the corner of my eyes. I went back to my provider who said I... READ MORE

I had Active FX laser with spot dermabrasion done yesterday for acne scars. My main problem was my cheeks and that is where he started with the dermabrasion, then active fx over the full face. I had the numbing cream, the shots, then the procedure began. The dermabrasion was nothing, I could not... READ MORE

I had acne scars and "craters" in my skin from a bad break out as an adult (after being on Accutane) and the procedure went well. After the procedure, it burned for about 1 hour (felt like a sun burn) but that went away quickly. For the next few days i washed my face 3 times a day... READ MORE

Before the Active FX treatment, i did not had visible wrinkles, but i wanted my skin to be more tight. After the laser treatment wrinkles appeared after a few weeks/months, and they are still getting deeper !!! I think the treatment makes your skin more fragile and wrinkles appear. I'm so...

I had the first of two Total Fx procedures done on my face yesterday and I must say this technology is remarkable !! It was relatively pain free throughout the procedure and I only noticed slight discomfort in certain areas of my face where the Active Fx laser was following the Deep Fx laser... READ MORE

Today is the 3rd day since I had the ActiveFX laser done on my entire face. I did it because of the sun damage spots. Many people who saw me before I had it said "I don't think you need it". I was also looking haggard and old. I'm turning 41 this year. I wanted something that would not take... READ MORE

I had my first Active FX procedure done at the end of June 2009. I was given medication at the office that knocked me out. I didn't feel much while they were doing the procedure. I had it done at 9am and don't remember much until around 9pm. I slept in a recliner chair the first day and... READ MORE

-I was having rhinoplasty and decided to try to improve my acne scarring, so I can't comment on pain during procedure as I was out. I have had acne since high school, and I am 33- female. I somehow seem to scar from every pimple or scratch, so I was VERY hesitant to have a laser trea READ MORE

I had the Active FX procedure performed on my entire face on December 30th to repair fine lines under my eyes. The doctor recommended the procedure be performed on my entire face to avoid differing skin tone on the rest of the face after the eyes were lasered. I went along with her... READ MORE

I’m a 54 year old, non-smoking vegetarian female who works out regularly, so I’m in excellent health and I look a lot younger than my age. However, when I turned 50, I started seeing the inevitable signs of being alive five decades, specifically, fine lines around my mouth and chin, as well... READ MORE

I had active fx on December 19,2009. I am scared my skin is still red and blotchy so I fear hyperpigmentation.But what scares me even more than that is I also had laser on my eye lids and now my bottom eyelids look scared or damaged. One eyelid looks like if you scratch yourself and the skin... READ MORE

Since I used this site as a great resource in researching my own treatment, I thought it only fair to provide my own experience to help others. I am 57 years old, and yesterday had Active FX done on my neck and upper chest to tighten the beginnings of crepey skin and some sun spots. I also... READ MORE

I am a 39 year old, light skinned caucasion female. I had Total FX in April and then again in September to reduce acne scars.I had some pain during the procedure, but nothing unbearable. After each procedure I had about a week of downtime - I felt fine, but wasn't able to wear make-up. The... READ MORE

Halfway through my procedure, 2 weeks post Deep Fx. This is probably the best technology so far for the results. Had cystic acne and sun damage, 47yrs old. The results are much better than I expected.I am a realist with these procedures. The first week looked a bit frightening with all the... READ MORE

If you want the quick summary, check out the end.For starters, it is important to note I am a 28 year old male and did this for acne scars.Month before procedure: Doc has me do... READ MORE

I have a lifelong background in outdoor activities and sun exposure. Recently, after extensive exposure, my face started to show horrible discoloration and spotting. I went to multiple doctors and clinics throughout Seattle, as well as in California. I was told time and time again that my... READ MORE
