Today I underwent Deep fx I am 54 years old and wanted to get rid of sun damaged skin, age spots and fine line wrinkles. It is part of the final mommy makeover. I had a tt in Oct and a breast lift in december of 2013. I am very happy with those procedures and decided to have the Deep fx for my final procedure . I went in today at 2 and was put under, general anesthesia. Deep fx is a deeper treatment than active fx. Before the procedure I did have 3 facials in the month prior to get my face ready for the laser treatment. I am going to document in pictures the days to show the progress. I must say i was pretty nervous to undergo the treatment. The treatment took about 2 hours . I am on pain meds but actually not feeling to bad. I am icing my face every 1/2 hour. Not direct ice but just a cold pack. My face is covered in a protective lotion. It is now 10 o'clock at night and here is a picture of my face

day 2, 3

warning. These pictures get pretty graphic. The pain on day 2 after the surgery was almost not bearable. I have been icing my face and just biding my time. I feel I have a very dramatic reaction. Day three is a little better but still in lots of pain.

update June 3

I am very happy with my results. I look 10 years younger, way less wrinkles and my age spots are gone. I stayed pink for a long time and am a little pink now. I will post a picture. The first five days were very rough but in the end very worth it

4 months

Thought I should show an after picture of the deep fx treatment. I am very happy with the results. The pain of it was pretty intense. The redness stayed for 3 months
Grand Rapids Plastic Surgeon

I have used Dr Rechner for my other procedures and highly recommend him. He is a perfectionist in nature and it show in his surgery. His first degree was in engineering . He treats each patient with the utmost care and works to do his best job. It shows in his work . He is never in a hurry, answers all questions and is always available to answer and concerns. I would trust my own daughter under his care. His bedside manner is wonderful. The staff at the office is also top notch
