My doctor told me to get total fx for crows feet. It did absolutely NOTHING for crows feet. I already had a great complexion, so the results were zero! Maybe the FX lasers work on brown spots, but it does not work well on orbital creases or sagging. The doctor was very experienced and really... READ MORE

I also had a bletharoplasty, eyelid lift,!! , at the same time. ON the way to my first appointment with Dr. R, I told my husband that we were only going for a consultation and I wasn't about to make any life-changing decisions. I walked out with a date for surgery! I think it was a... READ MORE

I had Total FX 6 days ago. I did it because I have moderate acne scars. It has been a really bad experience. It was slightly painful, the doc put metal shields under my eyelids, this was very scary. In the days following my procedure, I was swollen to the point my eyes were sealed shut. My left... READ MORE

Wanted to improve skin tone and reduce fine lines and hyperpigmentation. VERY painful and post-procedure first night was terrible -- vomiting, almost passed out, spent the night on the bathroom floor so I would be close to toilet to throw up. 3 months after procedure the brown spots are...

This is the third, similar laser procedure I've had in the last 16 years. I did it again to mitigate extensive sun damage while younger and to reduce pore-size appearance more than minimize wrinkles, of which I'm fortunate not to have many, amazingly enough (perhaps thanks to previous... READ MORE

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
