Not sure about the pros, but the con is that it didn't do anything it claimed and I believe did more harm than good. Did not improve my acne scars, did not create collagen.
I had it done on my neck also and all it did was create a very obvious line of demarcation where the sun tanned it permanently, and I was using 45 spf on it. So now I have a sharp line separating my face from my neck. It did not make my neck look younger. And it left little tiny bumps on my face. It left me with a very rough look all over.
Let me give a little advice - the best thing you could do for your face is facial exercise. I also am a big fan of Avon anew products, I swear they do what they promise. I know Avon may not have the reputation of being state of the art or whatever, but I noticed an immediate difference after I starting using it again. I left them for a while to try other more expensive stuff but I'm back, never to stray again.
After destoying my face with Fraxel, Thermage and a horrible procedure with Co2 and yag lasers, what brought back a normal look is vigorous facial exercise, some mild Alpha hydroxy acids and Anew. At first it seemed to make it look worse as my face reorganized itself but I kept with it and now I look pretty decent. There's not as much collapse and sagging as there was. Even the weird vertical lines that the Thermage made are filling in with exercise, exfoliating and Avon Anew. The CO2 and Yag lasers left a permanent indentation under my left eye that is slowly improving with "my plan".
I'm hopeful about the future again because I can really see a difference. Even the scars look better with the exercise. Save your money and take control of your face.
