After 3 months my skin still wasn't healed. I had horrible scars that I had to buy different meds for. Still have red scars. Would not recommend, was very painful procedure. It's been a year and a half redness and scarring still haven't gone away.Pores are larger,now have acne. READ MORE

I had 3 FX Fraxel treatments and 1 CO2 laser treatment for cystic acne scarring on my cheeks and chin. No improvement. I still have scars, actually more noticable. In the past I've had 1 chemical peel, 1 acid peel, 1 microdermabrassion, 2 dermabrassions. But I still have very visible scarring.... READ MORE

Had co2 for eye bag. Since procedure 6 months ago, I have had hyperpigmentation and swelling and wrinkles appear worse. Also veins have become more prominent. READ MORE

The experience I've had with lasers in the past has been good. I am just worried that because of accutane it may be different now.I had taken accutane for a period of three weeks and discontinued the use because of severity of it. I have been off of it for three weeks. I have a scar above my lip... READ MORE

I am so glad to have found this forum...Wish I would have found it prior to my DOT laser treatment to have a bit more realistic idea of what to expect.  I want to record my experience here for the benefit of anyone looking into it. My main goal in having this done was to treat the smoker's... READ MORE

The Mosaic Laser is a fairly new treatment out. I wanted it to get rid of any pigmentation, fine lines and general skin rejuvernation. A numbing cream is applied an hour before treatment,the laser itself feels warm and also have a fan on the face so it is not uncomfortable. My skin has felt... READ MORE

It was expensive and I had to wrap my face in celaphane for a day.  I was back out in three days and I looked great with younger skin. READ MORE

Today is Wednesday, 11/26/08. I had the SmartXide Dot treatment on Monday, 11/24/08. I'm 55 years old, with some acne scarring, uneven coloring, patches of large pores, some small broken capillaries around my nose. I would love to see my coloring evened out & the scarring diminished. My... READ MORE

Hello, I had Fraxel Re-Pair done and my face and Active FX under my eyes exactly 2 weeks ago. So far, I am not impressed.  I still have all the fine lines under my eyes that I really wanted to get rid of.  That's why I even did the procedure. My doc says it takes 4 months for the... READ MORE

I tried CO2 lasar resurfacing at age 58 to help w/texture and underlying collagen rebuilding. I was useless for a week afterwards, needing to put vaseline on my face constantly. I was terribly swollen for a couple of weeks. the red then pink color lasted over one month. Now it is 7 months... READ MORE

Two weeks ago, I underwent a fractional laser procedure on the top half of my face (from the mid-cheek up, around the eyes, and across the forehead to the hairline) using the Palomar Lux 2490 system.   I had expressed an interest in... READ MORE

Although I did not feel a thing during the full face laser, the recovery over a 2 week period was painful. I was house bound for 7 days, and the ozing and crusting were severe. Since I don't tolerate pain meds well, I just had to tough it out. The Dr. and his staff were terrific and supportive,... READ MORE

Many people, including nurses, secretaries, etc. use the word "Fraxel" to describe a fractional laser--and they will tell you their clinic gives Fraxel treatments. But in my case, the actual laser system was manufactured by Palomar, and simply did NOTHING. Their own brochures state... READ MORE

I went a couple of months before my wedding and the Doctor outlined a plan to have my skin great by my big day. He did a laser treatment and topical treatments with excellent results all in time for wedding photos! Great Doctor, clean office and such a helpful, kind staff. READ MORE

My first bit of advice is go out and buy lots green tinted makeup, it covers the red you'll laser skin resurfacing. I grew in Florida and had lots of sun damage, so much so that my insurance company paid for the laser treatment. The treatment began with novacaine injected into my face. ... READ MORE

I had CO2 facial resurfacing 6 weeks ago. Although I am still pretty red I tink the results are definately worth it. Please be prepared to follow the instructions to the letter and if you are not a person who can stick to a routine, don't do it. I did not think it was painful, just itchy and... READ MORE

This is the fourth day after my Active FX Laser resurfacing procedure (full face -- $2165 -- with a complimentary touch-up to follow). At 59, I looked in the mirror this morning and thought, "Wow, my skin looks like it did in High School!" Tight, firm, rosy. Where are those bothersome Crow's... READ MORE

Don’t make a big mistake! I tried laser resurfacing. Oprah had Thermage on her show so I went and looked up docs in my area who would do something about my skin. I was very naïve and thought there either wasn’t going to be anything or that they only dealt with taking off beauty marks or... READ MORE
