It's been 3 months since I had it done. Very dissapointed, cannot see any difference at all .Everything looks  the same.  I had the Active FX on #5 which is supposed to be deep.  The Dr said they would do it again in September  for free, so I go in on the 4th.  Has... READ MORE

I have been going to {edited - provider information is located above the review for registered users}, who is a plastic surgeon, for the past 2 years for Botox, and he suggested that I try the Active FX. I'm on my 2nd day post-treatment. {edited} did the procedure under general anesthesia, ... READ MORE

I am only on Day 2 after my Active FX procedure, but today is the first day I can actually focus on print and keep my eyes open for more than a few minutes. The shield that wes placed under my left eyelid scratched the cornea and caused much discomfort. The Tetracaine topical anesthestic... READ MORE

I wanted to be free of the sun damage. The magic in a laser was coming in the form of Active FX. I was prepared for pain from the laser, which hurt like heck, swelling, redness, taking time off to heal, daily care of my skin, icing, etc. I was not prepared for a dreadful experience. Day 2...

My other comments/posting are in the other section of this discussion board. I had ActiveFX over a month ago and there has not been even a slight change. I had light brown spots, fine wrinkles, four (4) keratosses that were small, 2 sk and 2 ac. I still have ALL these defects. The peeling has... READ MORE

I JUST HAD THE ACTIVE FX LASER PROCEDURE DONE ON NOVEMBER 8TH. IT HAS BEEN 2 WEEKS NOW AND I SEE NO DIFFERENCE. I STILL LOOK THE SAME AS WHEN I WENT IN, NO LIGHTENING OF FINE LINES, NO TIGHTENING. MY COLOR TONE WASN'T REALLY AN ISSUE. THE DOC SAID TO BE PATIENT, IT WILL LOOK BETTER WEEK BY... READ MORE

I have had many procedures, this was relately easy. I had full laser 6 years age, wow! That was long recvery, I liked the resuts. I am now 50, and being a sun worshiper had played havoc on my face, neck and chest. I had all three done, I had only my face the with the laser before. I can again... READ MORE

I had ACTIVE FX a few months ago by a well known doctor in Chicago Il, who is currently opening an skin care store. I went to this doctor because his credentials were great. I decided to have my face treated for acne scars and the doctor told me the FX laser would be most beneficial because I... READ MORE

This is my second day now.  I had the treatment yesterday , Thursday morning.  It is now Friday morning.  I see no red blotchyness at all.  I'm not in any paid or discomfort. I've kept my face saturated in the amorphol (or whatever) vaseline thing.  I see the dark dots... READ MORE

It has been 4 weeks since my Active FX treatment and I'm very happy with the results. The reduction in scarring on my cheeks is very good and that's what most people notice. The lines around the corners of my eyes are diminished and my face feels great. I still have keloidal scarring around my... READ MORE

The experience on 4/25/08 was what I expected...slightly painful. My eyes and face were really swollen with brown dots and some peeling. I had to take off a week of work. My face is still slightly red but I really don't see much improvement and my daughter tells me the wrinkles around my eyes... READ MORE

I am in day six of this treatment. The doctor used Deep FX for drooping lids, alligator skin around my eyes and deep wrinkles around my mouth. Active FX was used everywhere else on my face for sun damage wrinkles. All dead skin is gone except some patches on my nose, but my face still tingles... READ MORE

Ok, I am the first to say that I didn't want to believe any of the reviews that said Active FX didn't work! I am and have always been hopeful and willing to take risks if it means looking younger and feeling younger. So I went ahead and splurged over $2200.00 in a notable Los Angeles... READ MORE

Why I Did It: I had brown spots, bags, and crows feet. I am 38 and look young until you see my brown spots, and the crows feet when I smile. Pros and Cons: I am 5 weeks in and there is serious improvement. Many brown spots went away, some lightened. The skin under my eyes is more moist and... READ MORE

Got mine free. Work for a derm in Brookfield WI. Just going for wrinkles not acne scars. Saw results in less than 6 hours. Still getting better with each day. Very painful procedure - no pain no gain. Procedure only lasted about half an hour for my full face. Cold compresses were... READ MORE

I had my procedure done a couple months ago and can't really seem to see a huge difference. I got mine done for acne scars on my cheeks. I paid $2000 and the downtime was about 4-5 days before I could put make-up on again. I'm not sure if I am suppose to get it done a few times, but my Dr.... READ MORE
