Why Does It Appear That my Chin Area Has More Lines 11 Days After the Active and Deep Fraxel?

I have a highly rated doctor and follow post op. instructions.

Lines after Active FX laser

I am extremely experienced with Fraxel but have no experience with Active FX. I am aware of its technology, however, and you may be experiencing normal swelling induced temporary superficial changes.  See your physician for an evaluation but you'll have to be patient and give it a rest.  Many months from now you may see continuing improvement. Your doctor should recommend the appropriate topical regimen.  I like the Skin Medica TNS Ablative Kit and usually after a week, the Ceramide works very well, but please let your doctor tell you what's best after they evaluate your skin.

Active and Deep FX Are Not Fraxel

Hi NatG,

Active and Deep FX are not Fraxel.  Active and Deep FX are fractionated lasers by the company Lumenis.  Fraxel  is a premiere fractionated CO2 laser made by Solta.  They are not the same.  You should consult with your treating physician regarding your concerns after your Active and Deep FX.  Good luck and be well.
