My experience of Laser resurfacing of my face and neck was very good and safe. Peeling within a few days, some swelling, and only some redness remained by day 7; easily concealed with makeup , or enjoy the look of a fresh sunburn! The results are immediate and will continue to improve with time. READ MORE

If you are younger than 50 years of age without severe sun damage from sunbathing than Active FX might be good for you. This type of laser is not targeting deeper tissues,so you only will have flaking,sloughing,redness of the outer layer of skin and somewhat softer skin. If you want to really... READ MORE
