Not Worth It

Perhaps I would have a different opinion if the Dr was truthful with me about how long it is taking to get my face back to normal. I am 6 weeks out still red/blotchy/with brown spots... My skin looked so much better before this procedure. I would never do this again and I would tell anyone who... READ MORE

I'm a fair-skinned Asian. Thought I was fully prepared, but still got very bad hyperpigmentation. Fine lines around my eyes are gone, texture of the skin is better, but with the hyperpigmentation, I still look 10 times worse. Very disappointed! I have to say now 2 weeks after the... READ MORE

I had a combination active and deep fraxel around my mouth, primarily to lesson appearance of a small scar at the corner of my mouth.Now it is one month after and part of my skin appears to have striations that are accentuated when I apply makeup. Although I've been told that I may not... READ MORE

I had the ACTIVE FX-All over face, chest and neck plus DEEP FX on the face) Was told it would 'get rid' of scars, wrinkles and blotchy-ness, while 'lifting' the sagging skin. Not true!! At best, this treatment 'polished' my skin for about two months, but it is totally... READ MORE

I had the Total Fx procedure done 4 days ago. It definitely was uncomfortable..felt like I was getting zapped with hundreds of rubber bands lol..but it was not untolerable. Had lots of pinpoint bleeding and heat after, but not too bad. First night and second night was hard to sleep. Your... READ MORE

I had upper lip wrinkles and alot of sun spots from growing up in Florida, and I wanted to clean it up. I had Total Fx fractionated laser resurfacing and filler placed under my eyes by Dr. Retief, and it made a world of difference.  I look  so much better and younger.  And now... READ MORE

I am 47 and have a lot of wrinkles and sun damage. I felt that my face looked old and haggard, while the rest of me looked and felt young. I consulted with four different doctors (3 dermatologists, one oculoplastic surgeon) and all said I was a great candidate. I went with one of the derms... READ MORE

Total FX is one of the worst things I've done to my body (face). The risk to reward ratio is so high, I don't know why any educated individual would opt for this treatment. Obviously, I was an idiot for believing the hype and having wishful thinking. I opted for Total FX to treat... READ MORE

I have been considering getting Total FX for some time now. i am writing this in hopes that i can answer any questions that anyone might have for me since i am now in my third day of recovery. there are a lot of things to consider when having this done, realistic down time (a whole week at...

6 months past FX laser resurface, and I'm quite disappointed. Some scarring from early life acne improved, however, the overall texture of my skin is worse. In fact there are subtle new scars that were not there before. My pore size is larger, and fine lines remain. Today, for the first time... READ MORE

I had a little idea of what to expect, but oh... the pain. I was given demerol and ativan, for the pain. Numbing cream on the face - even my tongue was frozen. Then a few painful shots of lidocaine here and there. And so it begins - Deep FX first. In spite of all the numbing, the pain was so... READ MORE

I am a 59 year old woman who wanted a skin rejuvenation treatment for lines, large pores and dark spots form sun exposure. The procedure for the Active and Deep FX treatment was done under general anesthesia. I cannot imagine having this done any other way as it is a very intense procedure. I... READ MORE

My problem was crepey eyes (upper and lower eyelids). I ended up getting Total FX and here are my results: 1. Did it improve my overall skin tone? Yes. Dramatically. I now have the most beautiful and clear skin. 2. Did it improve my original problem? No. Not at all. For the first 2... READ MORE

I am 50, and had the Total FX treatment to diminish fine wrinkles around my mouth and eyes, remove brown sunspots, minimize large pores on my nose and chin, and to generally tighten the skin on my face. The treatment was a little painful, particularly around my eyes and nose despite the... READ MORE

I'm 56, fair-skinned, never smoked nor had excessive sun exposure but still had periorbital lines, some wrinkling and dark spots. Had total fx done 7 months ago, and had a 5-10% improvement @ best. Very disappointed. My expectations were not out of line and I gave it the full time frame for... READ MORE

Living in Florida as a teenager, I was one of many sun lovers and I have the type of skin that has no business being exposed to the sun. I became one big freckle. Now, living in Fairfield, CT and being much older and wiser, (depending on the day) I have spent years and thousands trying to... READ MORE

I had Active FX and Deep FX done on my face and neck 3 days ago. I am so glad that I had read all of the reviews prior to the procedure because I knew what to expect and was not nervous.On the day of the procedure I got to the office early to take my Vicodin, Valium and apply the numbing cream....

I had Total FX done about 9 days ago - at the second visit (5 days after the laser treatment)my doctor who did the laser treatment - was not happy on how my skin was healing - it seemed too red on one side - I told her that I design jewelry and was using a butane torch to work on some pieces -...

On Friday 12/12 I had Active FX all over my face and Total FX on the lower half of my face, neck and chest. It was painful but not terrible with numbing cream Valium and Vicodin on board. I have light eyes and hair and fair to medium skin and had the expected swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and... READ MORE

I had active and deep fx done three weeks ago.Although the procedure itself was very painful, I didn't care because I was very optimistic about the results. The recovery was absolutely horrible. The oozing is gross and the itching is almost unbearable. I told the doctor I had 10 days before I... READ MORE
