I had active and deep fx done three weeks ago.
Although the procedure itself was very painful, I didn't care because I was very optimistic about the results. The recovery was absolutely horrible. The oozing is gross and the itching is almost unbearable. I told the doctor I had 10 days before I went back to work. That was not nearly enough time and I ended up taking another week off. Last week was my first week back at work and I felt horrible. My face is still bright red and blotchy, uncomfortably tight and rough in some areas. I was expecting to be fully recovered by now. This has been the worst experience of my life.
