I wanted to get rid of lines around top of lip, eyes, crepey neck, and general sundamage.  Did face,neck and chest.  Recovery SEVERELY harder, longer and more painful than described.  Face looks streaky, can still see pinpricks from the laser and my neck is blotchy.  My... READ MORE

WHY I GOT IT: I had Smartxide on my chest and arms. On my chest, despite being just 30, I have fine lines and deeper wrinkles. I also have freckles, spots, dull skin and the skin texture is/was crinkly and beginning to turn leathery. Yuck! On my arms I have freckles, sunspots, a reddish tinge,... READ MORE

Why i did it? I am 61 yrs old with white white skin and some winkles around the mouth and eyes. I started using Retitin A and hychoclic acid lotion in November 2011 and was happy with the clarity of my skin. However, i wanted to get of winkles and in April, 2012 I decided to go ahead with the... READ MORE

I had SmartXide Dot Fraxel for face and neck. I am 44 years old. I have significant acne scaring, some small sun spots, very large pores, lines between my nose and mouth and between my eyebrows and some loose skin on my neck under my chin and my eyes are a little more hooded than they used to be...

I have had a terrible experience with Dot Smartxide and recommend against it. The treatment was agressive and the doc informed me I would be red for a week. Three weeks later (at which time I have had to stay home) I still have red grid marks over my face. I have no idea how long these marks... READ MORE

Had the SmartXide laser on 1/13/12. Numbing cream for about an hour. Dr came in wiped off the cream and then cleaned my face with alcohol. Dr. went over my problem areas a couple times and it felt like fire on my face. I did expect pain, but this was over the top. I am looking for overall skin... READ MORE

I've had DOT twice with good results both times. Dark spots literally pealed off in my hands every time I washed my face. The end result was younger-looking skin with better texture and more even coloring. The last time I combined it with the "vampire" platelet injection... READ MORE

I would do this again if the setting were done for wrinkles ,i understand you can go deeper ,but how deep is deep to get a good result ,i do not see ant mention of this on the web sites. having light skin and blue eyes i have been told im a good candidate for smartxide laser. i was looking for a...

This is now week 7 from having my smartxide treatment on full face,eyes and neck. Still slight redness to the neck area. Skin tone is fantastic, hoping to see more improvement under the eye area within a few more months. I am 43 and have always maintained good skincare and diet etc. I did... READ MORE

I wanted to post some info on my experience with SmartXide DOT laser treatment on this forum as the info I read here was very helpful in making my decision to have the tx. Previous posts were also helpful in preparing me for the actual procedure and recovery. I had the laser tx on July 11, 2011.... READ MORE

I had this treatment done on my face almost two weeks ago and the results are so much better than I'd expected! I'm 38yo and spent a lot of time in the sun until about 5 years ago. I had more wrinkles and spots than others my age and now I think I look more like I'm 30 than 38! Some... READ MORE

I am 38 with sun damaged skin. I had my first treatment 9 weeks ago. I wanted to get rid of mild acne scars, reduce pore size, even out tone if skin, reduce eyebags and under eye wrinkles (list not exhaustive haha). I used topical anaesthetic over an hour before the procedure. First... READ MORE

I had SmartXide 4-14 at 3:15. I had read the other reviews on this blog which equipped me to ask the right questions. I asked about settings on the DEKA laser, and explained that I'm 60 years old,fair skin, and requested that he customize my treatment accordingly. Dr. said would set DEKA at... READ MORE

Why did I do this to myself?!! :) Acne, acne scars and pigmentation problems. Pros: -quick procedure -fairly cost effective...it's a one time procedure after all for most! -not too painful provided you have the numbing cream on beforehand (45min +) and my derm gave me Novocain... READ MORE

I had this procedure on 12/2/10. I had numbing cream applied to my face which sat about an hour before the procedure. I was uncertain if I wanted to do my neck, but decided to go for it as the nurse esthetician who performed the procedure thought I would get a good result. It ranged from mildly... READ MORE

I had SmartXide resurfacing around eyes 4 days ago. Procedure was uncomfortable even with topical freezing. Eyes then swelled nearly shut for a day. But now only 4 days later, nearly all is back to normal. However, there was no peeling at all. I am very surprised, as I expected peeling... READ MORE

When I hit puberty, it hit back with cystic acne and nothing seemed to help. Options were few in 1951. The deep scarring was unsightly. I continued with acne most of my life--I have very oily skin. As an adult I saw a dermatologist off and on and had some chemical skin peeling--the scar pitting... READ MORE

I had the Smartxide Jan21 just the bottom half of face, I am 58years old and had sun damage and heavy wrinkles around my mouth and upper lip, although the wrinkles are still there, they are very much improved. I love the way I look and was told by friends and family that I look great. I am going... READ MORE

Had procedure on Friday, it is now Monday. Still a lot of swelling and very, very bright red. Had a lot of bleeding (oozing spots) the first night which then stopped with unbelievable swelling. I think I made a mistake and didn't apply ice until yesterday (2 days after the procedure). For past... READ MORE

I am 39 with fair and oily skin. I got the procedure 4 weeks ago and the only changes I can see, so far, are negative. I went for enlarged pores, few sun spots, acne scars around the mouth, and fine lines around the eyes. As my skin is over-reactive (my whole body is in fact), I started... READ MORE
