I thought it was quite easy, I experienced feeling like I had a sunburn for the first day, heat, alot of tightness, then the next few days mostly just peeling, a little itching, and more peeling.
Prior to the procedure, (I had both Deep Fx and Active Fx on my face and neck) I had a topical numbing cream, a Valium, and a Vicodin and it was completely comfortable, just a little mild stinging around the nose & eye area.
As an ex-smoker, I have many deep wrinkles around my mouth, crow's feet as well as large pores. I am hoping to take off a few years by smoothing out those deep wrinkles even a little.
As of day 5, the texture of my face is better, pores are smaller but that's all so far. I know I have to be patient, results come with time as collagen builds.
