I had the active fx yesterday. I am 56 years old and had sun damage, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. My Dr did some deeper treatments along w/the regular to stimulate the collagen more and improve wrinkles and some sagging in my jaw line. I had the numbing cream then injections. He did my eyes, chest and neck along w/my face.
Before the procedure I was really anxious about the eyes because of the eye guards they put in, but it wasn't uncomfortable at all. I think because of the deeper treatments it did hurt some, but it was not unbearable.
Today, I'm a lot red, and a little swollen, sore and tight, but it looks better than yesterday. I can see where some of it is starting to brown, so I guess I'm on track for a good recovery and I'm looking forward to my skin looking a lot better after all the healing takes place. I will write again after some more results.
I hope this helps as I was reading other input before my procedure and it helped me.
