I had SmartXide done in Feburary of 2009. I had high expectations because my Dr. was featured on several local news channels. I'm 44 and I wanted the procedure done for some fine wrinkles and a couple acne scars.The procedure was uncomfortable to say the least and when he put those things in my... READ MORE

Not worth it! Painful, scabbing still have a lot of red areas after 5 weeks. Have to use foundation, can't go out without it.Numbing creme left on for about 15-20 minutes...suppose to be on for 1 hr... Hurt like hell! I've had 2 children without any meds. fallen off many horses, broken bones etc... READ MORE

After reading some of the negative reviews on this site, I was worried. But wanting to be rid of these (moderate) acne scars finally, at 45, I made myself go through with it. Otherwise I'd always wonder if it would have helped.I took nothing prior (my doctor no longer prescribes anything for... READ MORE

It was mild discomfort, burning afterwards, and on day 3 sandpaper dot scabs in grid form that have peeled in sections leaving red and indented marks behind.I am on day 3 since my DOT treatment. The brown scablike dots that look like checkers all over my face are starting to peel and flake. Some... READ MORE

The staffs are very experience and supportive, the procedure is uncomfortable. Very surprise to see the degree of redness and swelling right after the procedure.I have the dot treatment 5 days ago, my skin starts peeling yesterday, but the new skin still look very very red, which really worry me...

I have acne scars as well as Sebaceous Hyperplasia from the oil glands. I was told I would be a good candidate for this procedure.It's been 3 weeks & I'm broke out & depressed. I don't see any difference in my condition. There may be some pigmentation correction around my jaw line but... READ MORE

Previous post 'lump on forehead'offered solutions but answers can't (give me)Dr. Four appts. w/ Board Certified Plastic Surgeons took consult $$, said don't do scar reconstruction! I was clear about lump/scar on phone. Found 1 that said would cut full across. NOT! A new... READ MORE

The treatment wasn't extremely painful, but sensitive around the jaw bone, nose, mouth and mainly under the eyes. It did go by fast. My eyes were the most painful the next day. Very swollen. I didn't even look the same.I was expecting the swelling to go down. I had it done on Friday. It is... READ MORE

I had the "dot" laser therapy three weeks ago. I still have slight redness in some areas in the shape of squares where the laser was used on a higher setting. I also still have areas of very slight difference in texture where you can see the "dot" pattern from the laser.The... READ MORE

Hi ladies,It's me again, just reporting in.It is now May and I had my DOT Feb.4th and there is still no improvement. I admit I am sixty, but the doc. did say it would help my wrinkles and it hasn't.I will report back in August when it has been the full 6 months and I'm due for my second... READ MORE

I had the Dot Smartxide laser therapy 5 days ago on my face, neck and chest . I am 41 with some acne scars on my cheeks, some slight wrinkles around my eyes and a little sun damage on my chest. I thought this would be a great way to look a bit better.I must say the treatment went well some... READ MORE

The pocedure got rid of the dark spots on my face from sun damage and my skin feel tight and youthful. I am unhappy about the acne breakout and it is uncomfortable. I had DOT therapy 4 days ago and have broken out with painful acne on the treated area. Is this normal and what do I... READ MORE

Hello, I had Smartxide lasering done under my eyes, with great results, as the crepiness vanished and wrinkling was reduced quickly. I also had a small scar on my upper cheek that was diminished by about 1/2 and smoothed out nicely.Yikes. I seemed to have sunburned the area under my eyes. I was... READ MORE

I just had the dot therapy or smartxide procedure completed this morning. My reason for doing so was to remove some fine lines on the top of my lip. The doctor actually did the lower portion of my face as well. She did a feathering technique. Focusing a more agressive treatment on my problem... READ MORE

Bought package of 2 for $2100 including post treatment lotions.  Day one was great, I could have gone to work.  I was numb and if you looked closely, I had the little white dots.  Day 2 was still ok, still had good numbing effect and little redness.  Day 3 was tomato red and... READ MORE

I had DOT done yesterday. I was surprised at how painful it was around my eyes. The doc did say she was intensifying the laser around my eyes. I had told her that those wrinkles bothered me. I had shields placed in my eyes.Immediately afterwards my eyes were swollen. Today I look like a... READ MORE

The PS needed to be "trained" on the new laser, so he asked me in for free to be the subject of the training.  I have a small scar on my upper cheek plus my lower eyelids were crepey looking and a bit loose. He used injectables for freezing. He also used drops inside the eye and... READ MORE

I have detailed my experience elsewhere on this site, but just want to say that after three months, I really feel like this was definately not worth the money. The results are minimal. The pain and long recovery were so underplayed by the doctor that it really makes me angry. My Christmas was... READ MORE

I had the SmartXide laser done on a Thursday afternoon and by Friday afternoon I felt great. Not ready to be seen in public, but felt really good. The recovery was pretty easy and remarkably fast. The treatment itself was a little bit painful towards the end, as i dont think that the tech put... READ MORE

Had the laser done on Saturday and began with 60 Minutes of numbing gel while listening to music. Procedure was about 15 minutes. I had Full face, below eyebrows and under chin/jaw with several passes on the areas I had most acne scars (cheeks and chin). Procedure wasn't painful at all. 1 to... READ MORE
