The pocedure got rid of the dark spots on my face from sun damage and my skin feel tight and youthful. I am unhappy about the acne breakout and it is uncomfortable. I had DOT therapy 4 days ago and have broken out with painful acne on the treated area. Is this normal and what do I... READ MORE

Hello, I had Smartxide lasering done under my eyes, with great results, as the crepiness vanished and wrinkling was reduced quickly. I also had a small scar on my upper cheek that was diminished by about 1/2 and smoothed out nicely.Yikes. I seemed to have sunburned the area under my eyes. I was... READ MORE

I just had the dot therapy or smartxide procedure completed this morning. My reason for doing so was to remove some fine lines on the top of my lip. The doctor actually did the lower portion of my face as well. She did a feathering technique. Focusing a more agressive treatment on my problem... READ MORE

Bought package of 2 for $2100 including post treatment lotions.  Day one was great, I could have gone to work.  I was numb and if you looked closely, I had the little white dots.  Day 2 was still ok, still had good numbing effect and little redness.  Day 3 was tomato red and... READ MORE

I had DOT done yesterday. I was surprised at how painful it was around my eyes. The doc did say she was intensifying the laser around my eyes. I had told her that those wrinkles bothered me. I had shields placed in my eyes.Immediately afterwards my eyes were swollen. Today I look like a... READ MORE

The PS needed to be "trained" on the new laser, so he asked me in for free to be the subject of the training.  I have a small scar on my upper cheek plus my lower eyelids were crepey looking and a bit loose. He used injectables for freezing. He also used drops inside the eye and... READ MORE

I have detailed my experience elsewhere on this site, but just want to say that after three months, I really feel like this was definately not worth the money. The results are minimal. The pain and long recovery were so underplayed by the doctor that it really makes me angry. My Christmas was... READ MORE

I had the SmartXide laser done on a Thursday afternoon and by Friday afternoon I felt great. Not ready to be seen in public, but felt really good. The recovery was pretty easy and remarkably fast. The treatment itself was a little bit painful towards the end, as i dont think that the tech put... READ MORE

Had the laser done on Saturday and began with 60 Minutes of numbing gel while listening to music. Procedure was about 15 minutes. I had Full face, below eyebrows and under chin/jaw with several passes on the areas I had most acne scars (cheeks and chin). Procedure wasn't painful at all. 1 to... READ MORE

Yesterday I had my first Smartxide treatment. I read all the comments made by people who had this procedure. I did my homework and went to a very good doctor. I would have to say, even tho I had the numbing cream on my face for 1 hour prior to the treatment, after the initial pass-over, the... READ MORE

I had dot therapy done with the smartxide laser primarily for the fine lines I was developing around my eyes and mouth and to treat some sun damage gained over the years. I was red for about a week and it was mildly irritating for a day or so but the results were incredible! My husband thinks I... READ MORE
