Had this done after Xmas last year. I am now 51. The procedure was not painful at all. Nor was there any discomfort or much peeling afterward.
I did this to tighten my skin. However, the results were minimal at best, with no results on the lower portion of my face. (jowls, lines between nose and mouth, lines beside mouth...) More than a month later, there still has been no change. There was no reduction in mild acne scarring from my teenage years.
I would not recommend Active FX. The office and staff were great, but the procedure was ineffective.
There was no pain and little scarring but before the procedure the doctor told me I would get some results all over face, including lower face. After, he said it would be mostly around my eyes. I would not have had the procedure for a slight, very slight difference under my eyes, no change at all on lower face.
