This procedure was a test drive for me because I want to do whole face, neck and chest Deep or Total FX. I can see that I would need to be pretty heavily medicated during and after if I do go through with it - but maybe I'll just tackle it in steps. I am about to turn 52 and am trying everything to slow down the sag and droop that's crept over my face and neck. I did Ulthera five months ago - it helped somewhat in that I see a more defined jaw line, but the results are so very subtle and of course do nothing to skin surface grooves and indentations which seem to get deeper by the week.
This upper eyelid laser was chosen to target the vertical lines below the eyebrow which are deep and obvious even in repose. Most people would do upper lids and under eyes at the same time, I couldn't for a few practical reasons like clinic being too far away and needing a driver etc.
I am super optimistic that this Doctor may have completely erased the vertical grooves. In the preop he showed me some of the most dramatic before and after pictures I have ever seen. He's seems to be fairly aggressive about delivering noticeable results. Kind of wish I had saved the money from the Ulthera and gone straight to him. I did Ulthera because I couldn't take any downtown (and didn't need it, went right back to work). Today on Day 2 I couldn't even leave the house and will be like this for a week at least I'm guessing. But if it gets the result, then it's worth it and I will schedule time to do the rest later. Let us see how I do in my own after photo.
