I had SmartXide done in Feburary of 2009. I had high expectations because my Dr. was featured on several local news channels. I'm 44 and I wanted the procedure done for some fine wrinkles and a couple acne scars.
The procedure was uncomfortable to say the least and when he put those things in my eyes to do the eye area it was extremely painful. My Dr. claimed a few days of recovery time, but I had to use 10 of my vacations days because my skin looked aweful still and it burned like crazy.
Now almost a year later I see absolutely NO RESULTS! It was the BIGGEST WASTE of 1500.00 I could ever imagine. I midaswell have thrown that money out the window....It would have saved me from all the pain of feeling like I fried my skin out in the sun, a lot of vacation time and two weeks of pay......I'm Livid about the whole thing!
