I am a 39 year old, light skinned caucasion female. I had Total FX in April and then again in September to reduce acne scars.
I had some pain during the procedure, but nothing unbearable. After each procedure I had about a week of downtime - I felt fine, but wasn't able to wear make-up. The day after the procedure, I was able to continue my usual life - just stayed home. I have four kids and was perfectly fine to take care of them and drive them to school and all of their activities (although I had to watch a few baseball games from the car!)
My scarring is not totally gone, but it is minimized and I feel better, which is the most important thing.
Anyone considering this procedure needs to really evaluate what they want and why they are having this done.
