Active FX (Moderate) with Microneedling Right Before Laser. Atlanta, GA

I gave it some time before I posted a review. The initial results were great, but I knew I was still swollen for the procedure and the wrinkles and fine lines looked more diminished because of it.

Active FX on Chest

I decided to do Active FX on my chest after the BBL was a waste of money. My sun damage is not horrendous, but it does not match the pretty skin on my face! Lol. I figured if I like the results on my chest, I could move onto my face next time as it is more invasive than the Venus Laser. So... READ MORE
