I wanted my face to be more firm and repair sun damage so i had the FX laser about 1 year ago and this procedure was a total waste of money, $3000.00 I would never utilize their services again! I was assured that this procedure would firm and repair sun damage my skin, did neither. I did... READ MORE

Hello, I am a 19 year old male and I did the Active FX procedure for acne scars. I would describe my scars as ice pick type scars, I have almost no rolling/boxcar scars from acne unlike others.They are all deep and have a small width. The entire process its self was slightly painful, almost... READ MORE

I am a 40 year old woman who had Active fx last year on my face for fine lines and pigmentation I had amazing results my skin looked 5 years younger loved it READ MORE

Tear troughs were making me look tired and older than I feel... so hello dermal fillers. I had the laser treatment to address several issues... sun damage, skin clarity, fine lines/wrinkles, and collagen loss. READ MORE

I've had 2 times an active fx / deep fx treatment. After the first treatment there was a little but obvious improvement. After the second treatment, one year later, my skin really improved much, it looked baby new, especially in the first months, but after a few months the beautiful skin... READ MORE

Had the co-2 laser a few months ago. the results are amazing. I wanted to get rid of my uneven skin tone and dark spots. Dr. Fisher recommended the laser and explained how it works and how it would benefit me. Im so happy that I had it done! I still feel like my face is improving! READ MORE

Hello, I had a session of active fx for pregnancy stretch marks on flanks, lower back and thighs and I was left with severe scarring after the procedure. Four days after the treatment the stretch marks formed scabs, which when they came off left scars. The ones on my thigh are the worst because... READ MORE

Just had active fx and total fx done on my face, neck, chest and hands one week ago. The first day I looked like an accident going somewhere to happen. Had full anaesthesia as I also did an arm lift at the same time. Oct. 17 - day of surgery 10:30 till 14:00 afterwaking up from surgery had... READ MORE

BIG, TOTAL waste of money!! I made it clear when I went in for the treatment that the MAIN reason I was having the procedure was to get rid of the bags under my eyes and the "wrinkles" were secondary. I was assured that YES the bags would be gone. No they are not. It has been 1... READ MORE

I had this procedure as I wanted to remove all the sun sports and damage from my skin - also wanted to feel good about myself - this procedure certainly did all that and the down time was not that long - from day of procedure to make-up was 6 days! READ MORE

I'm 40 with light wrinkles and crepiness beginning under my eyes that I wanted to tighten up and to get rid of freckles. I had Active & Deep FX done in January by a very skilled, well known dr. After the pain, swelling, itching, and peeling subsided after 7 days, and my skin was nice... READ MORE

Im 22 and have very slight lines under my eyes and some excess skin on my upper lids. (hereditary) I got Active fx for the eye area and after months saw no improvement, not even to the fine lines under my eyes. The doctor told me because i am so young my results should be better than that... READ MORE

I had Active FX on my face, neck, and chest about ten months ago. I'm 45 and hoped for fewer fine lines and less accordion pleating on my lower cheeks. The procedure was very stressful. It's loud, you wear light-proof contacts on your eyes, and you can smell burning flesh. I was... READ MORE

Had Active FX in January with a week of miserable swelling, weeping, flaking, then another week of itchy redness, then terrible itchy acne breakouts. Now, almost 2 months later my skin looks EXACTLY the same as before the procedure. The second week after the procedure, I was cautiously... READ MORE

I had the procedure almost 3 weeks ago. It was done by my dermatologist, whom I've been seeing for 8 years. Gotta say, my poor face looks so much worse than it did before the procedure. My face is still very hot and sore. My jaw (jowls) do look slightly better, but the lines around my mouth... READ MORE

I had this procedure in the summer of 2009. I have enlarged pores and some scaring from acne. I have had a lower face lift in 2001 {not performed by the same surgeon}, my upper and lower eyes done, laser resurfacing,dermabrasion and Restalyne. The texture of my skin was changing for the worse... READ MORE

I had Active Fx 6 days ago and I am thrilled. Before I did it, I asked my doctor if she thought I would need a face life and she said no. Since I'm 64 I was dubious, but I really think she's right. It erased most of my wrinkles and really tightened my face. My doctor said that she... READ MORE

It has been 1 year and 5 months and my face is still yellow (pigmented) and looks like a mask. I wish I never did. Thermage was much better without the down time. READ MORE

I am 62 have already had a face liftand eye correction in 2006.I trust this doctor and he is so excited about the results he has had with Active FX.
