I'm 12 days post Total FX and I very pleased with my result. I'm 64 years old and have been wanting to do laser resurfacing for awhile. I've had TCA chemical peels and they were much more painful than this. I was given a sedative and two Percocet for pain. I had numbing cream applied for 45minutes prior. I never had pain during or after the procedure. I used a little hand held fan on my face for about an hour afterward because of the heat. Then I went to sleep as my procedure was about 3:45 and I was drowsy from the sedative. The hardest thing was sleeping on my back as I'm a side sleeper. I expected to see the brown spots go away but I was pleasantly surprised with how tight the skin under my eyes is now. I have just started using the SkinMedica products that were recommended. I want to protect my investment. My doctor has seen me 3 times since the procedure and I will go back in a month for a complimentary Clear and Bright treatment. She's very thorough and doesn't just do the work and send you on your way. I had my face, neck, and chest done so my body matches my face. Something I didn't do with chemical peels so my face was always much lighter than my body. Do your research and don't go for the cheapest deal. Don't bargain with your face!
