Listen for these two categories of lasers: ablative (ones that remove thin layers of skin) and nonablative (those that tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth). LEARN MORE ›

Initially, I only wanted resurfacing on the sides of my face, but Simon Lee convinced me to have my whole face resurfaced on the grounds that it would blend better, so I agreed, despite the cost being more than double. I was given nerve blocks (approximately twenty injections in the face),... READ MORE

I had a C02 Laser treatment done yesterday and was EXTREMELY UPSET this morning when I woke up. I couldn't open up my eyes and wasn't sure WHY my eyes were so affected. I expected redness and swelling, but I actually looked liked I had a upper and lower blephoplasty. I looked like I had Surgery... READ MORE

Just finished third of three laser treatments. Process was easy and comfortable, staff wonderful. My formally blotchy sun damaged skin is now so smooth and even I get a lot of complements! Am thrilled with results, I can even skip the foundation without feeling I'm slumming! I would highly... READ MORE

I wanted to try something to tighten pores. I'm 34yr old female with good skin but still was noticing enlarged pores that I hated. I heard of Clear and Brilliant which is a New "low level Fraxel", half the cost, half the downtime and half the results for people who want to maintain - not... READ MORE

For the last couple of years I've watched my eyelids become increasingly heavy. I wanted to get back the youthful eyes I use to have. I also have been working on correcting the acne scars I have. The C02 Laser resurfacing does this with the added bonus of decreasing fine lines, sun damage and... READ MORE

Over the years I've had numerous chemical peels and laser resurfacing. My complexion look's fantastic BUT I did not take into consideration possible damage to my eyes. During deep laser resurfacing, your doctor will insert metal shields IN your eyes. For less deep laser, they put plastic shields... READ MORE

I am satisfied with the results of the laser resurfacing Dr. Swengel performed. II did not want a major change but did want my skin to look smoother and clearer. This treatment has definitely done this. My husband agrees and says it has taken 10 years off me. My life will not change dramatically... READ MORE

I am having a terrible experience...I had laser resurfacing 2 months ago and they did give me antivirals to take for 2 weeks following the procedure but somehow I got herpes all over my face, I don't know how or why but now even taking antivirals won't take them away for more than a day...they...

I am getting fractional laser treatments as I have deep acne scarring. The first treatment was really harsh as my skin was very red and bleed from different spots. It started to peel the second day and it went better after few days. Its been a month my skin kinda look the same. After a month I... READ MORE

Reduce wrinkles, reduce acne scarring I had this procedure done to reduce wrinkles and old acne scars. Improve skin tone and texture. There was an anaesthelogist and I had IV sedation. When the procedure was completed I had minimal redness and swelling. There was some slight burning... READ MORE

I had DOT Therapy done at Dr. Bassin's Melbourne office on a Friday afternoon. The treatment was faster than I had expected and felt exactly as explained. Each day following my treatment, my skin looked just like a bad sunburn, pealed and as soon as I followed up with my recommended facial, I... READ MORE

I had CO2 laser resurfacing on May 24th and here it is, July 6th, and I have seen NO results whatsoever! How long b4 I see ANYTHING? All help is welcome. I had a facelift in May 2009, then punch excision for acne pits, then the laser and my face does NOT look any better. Plus, I had my eyes done... READ MORE

I had the proceedure today and must have been out of it from the pain injection because I don't remember anything about the proceedure. Apparently besides my face, they also lasered my neck and a scar I had on my upper chest from skin cancer. I don't have any pain. It feels like a bad sunburn... READ MORE

Very painful procedure. Needed some skin resurfacing and wrinkle removal. suggest IV anethesia if considering this procedure. Just had it done 2 days ago.The procedure was worth it. My skin looks great. Down time was about 8 days. The improvement on the wrinkles around the mouth were about 60%.... READ MORE

Pros: hopeful that I will be satisfied with the results but am not going to make that judgement at this point. Healing is faster than I would have thought possible right after the procedure was done. Cons: absolute shock to the body, fairly severe pain for first 48 hours, unexpected nerve... READ MORE

So, thx to the response of the dr.'s here I chose active fx over IPL for fine lines, acne scars, and pore size (active fx was actually cheaper, only one teatment and treats all of my issues instead of 1). I just got the procedure yesterday and it was a breeze, practically painless (feels... READ MORE

I had ablative laser resurfacing to correct major sun damage, fine lines and remove brown age spots. My face peeled for the first week and there was some redness for the next few weeks which was able to be covered up with makeup. My complexion is flawless now. The tone and texture of my skin...

I had my first Clear & Brilliant a little over two weeks ago at Dr. Mountcastle's Ashburn office and I am very pleased with the results after just one session. My pores and skin appear and feel tighter and previously visible blackheads and clogged pores are now gone or barely visible. What's... READ MORE

Okay, so I'm in the medical spa industry and I'm fortunate to have nurse practitioners as friends. I was asked to be a model for a Palomar Lux 1540 laser resurfacing training. I've been haunted for years by classic ice pick acne scarring on my chin from cystic acne and thought what... READ MORE

I am in mid 50's and the lines around my eyes, mouth and other places were getting deeper and deeper...Just had the double procedure yesterday--full face fractional ablative laser preceded by a full face non-ablative laser. Less painful than I expected. I did not have any pain meds and while... READ MORE
