Active FX for a Dark Complexion
Im not African-American but I am dark complected because I am a sun worshipper and have been for years. I have some brown spots on my face and many on my chest. Very large pores. I am scheduled to have Active FX at the end of October on my face, neck, and chest but after reading some comments I am worried about hyperpigmentation.
My physician has told me to stay out of the sun until and after my procedure but am worried that maybe that wont be long enough. When will my skin be ready for this treatment? Has this procedure ever been done on the neck and chest too?
