Dont over Pay

The main reason i am writing this is bc. So many people over paid. I paid 1350.00 In Bucks Pa. Also the next treatments drop to 700.00. Dont get ripped off. :)
I woke up today swollen and red. I am sure it will get better as I go though.

Update:

I had this Active fx yesterday evening. I already wrote that I paid 1350.00.
Today I was swollen and red. I want to recommend zoxecma to clean your skin, then 100%
Lanolin after it. It made a huge difference. Oh and 3 Advil. LOL
I look like I am wearing a shiny peel off mask. I still cant tell if it was worth it or not.

I had my Active Fx treatment in Doylestown Pa on 12/18/08. Today, (12/21) my face is red and peeling. How long after the treatment do you see results. So far I see none.

I have scheduled for early May '08 one treatment of Active FX at a medspa in Pasadena CA. I will be taking antibiotics to prevent cold sores and must do a two week treatment of skin-lightening cream in advance. It's $3,000 for face and neck for one treatment. What is accomplished -- other than the sloughing off of dollars -- in one treatment at this price if others are doing 4 treatments for about the same price? Thankas for feedback.

If you take Valtrex, Zovirax, Acyclovir, etc., you shouldn't have a cold sore outbreak. I've never heard of antibiotics for cold sore prevention, but any of these taken prophylacticly are awesome for prevention. I had CO2 laser back in 2001 (which is apparently much more aggressive than these newer lasers) so I was petrified I would have a cold sore while going through a pretty painful recovery process. I took extra Zovirax before procedure and did not have an outbreak. Good luck!

There's only one practioner that I know that does Active FX in Bucks County, Doylestown. He's the one most likely doing if for $1350. I do know he does follow ups for $700. I have had restylane injections done by him and seen pictures of his work done to Active FX patients but have yet to take the plunge. He is Dr. Glenn DeBias.

I had the Active FX done this week by the same MD for $1150.00 (special because of a new King of Prussia office). Are you satisfied with the results and how long did it to take before you saw a difference. I am in my late 50s.

Hi, I live in the Whittier Area. Has anybody had the procedure done in this area? If so please share your comments. I am desperate to find a qualified treatment center in the area. If not in Whittier, my sister lives in Pasadena and she is willing to drive me. Also please give me an idea of your cost as well as your results. Thank you

I had Active FX done this past Friday (3/14). After several days of looking like I fell asleep under a sun lamp for an hour, a lot of the redness and peeling is gone. I'm 56, and the bags under my eyes are gone, my skin is smoother, less wrinkles. My neck is still red and hasn't fully peeled. I paid $1350 for face plus $250 for neck in Delaware Co. by a dermatologist. So far, well worth the $$. Do it sooner than later if you want to look good in 6 weeks in case there's residual redness. Good luck!
