I'm in early sixties and wanted to deal with lines and blotchiness.

Cheek area looks great now and it did smooth lines at top of upper lip. But not happy with chin area which was my main concern. It didn't really get rid of lines there and actually they look a bit worse plus now I have bumpiness and millia and it is 8 months later. The chin area seems very dry and the skin looks a bit thinner.

Also the eye area can be a concern. I think it can make lines under the eyes which are delicate more pronounced However in my case this was very slight and I'm the only one who notices that.

If you dont look too closely as we tend to do it is still a not bad result but now Im told I should do maintenance treatments that are not cheap. Seeing I spend aboout 3000 cdn I was hoping for a bit longer lasting result without adding on an extra expense of 1200 a year for 4 treatments of genesis. (recommended).

Pain was severe in places but they gave a topical prior plus an ativan.

I dont have before photos unfortunately.

After some time I do think my skin texture and colour were improved by the fractional. Other people noticed it more than I did. The downside is that it is recommended that you do maintenance laser genesis treatments. I found that the combination of the fractional with some filler in the chin area made a difference.

I am not dissatisfied with the overall result. The key here is reasonable expectation. It does not do everything that it claims to do and I'm sure age is a factor also.

I unfortunately don't have a good before photo but I think you can see that the skin is relatively smooth and unblotchy.

There are some pluses but just be aware of the negatives as well. Cost is a big one for the average working person.
