Hi Everyone, this is the first review i have written on realself. I have just had active fx combined with deep fx for acne scarring and pigmentation today.
When i entered the clinic, i had numbing cream applied all over my face an hour before treatment began. I expected the procedure to be extremely painfull, but it wasnt at all. it was very bareable. My face was slightly hot for a few hours afterwards, but has calmed down now. I have vaseline all over my face, which i have to use for the next 5days. The parts of my face where the active fx was done is slightly red and the parts where the deep fx was used is bloody and oozing still. Im also quite swollen, but in no pain, I havent felt the need to take painkillers at all. I will update each day as ri heal :)

It been a week since my active fx and my face has peeled and healed. At the moment i am not happy,my skin is horrible, its red and blotchy. I also what looks like a rash on my nose, around my nose and forehead and side of my face. I think its getting better but i am concerned as i cant find information on getting a rash after active fx, I hope that it is just from the vaseline and not an outbreak of herpes. i am going to contact my doctor tomorrow about this. Im trying to stay positive and i know that it has only been a week but at the minute i am worried about the rash and blotchiness and i am thinking that doing this was a mistake and a waste of money :(((
