ActiveFX™/DeepFX™ Fractional Laser Treatments
Our skin changes over time, losing its youthful look and giving way to brown spots, texture irregularities, wrinkles and laxity. In recent years there has been a growing number of aesthetic procedures available to treat the skin. The ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ treatments yield remarkable, long lasting results after just one treatment. Our fast Active/DeepFX™ procedures is your single-appointment solution for wrinkled, uneven, and sun damaged skin.
Is Active/DeepFX™ right for you?
Active/DeepFX™ is an ideal treatment option if you have a busy lifestyle, cannot be away from work for a long time, or want noticeable results with only a week of social downtime.
What is Active/DeepFX™?
The DeepFX™ laser utilizes a fractional CO2 laser that microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. Following the DeepFX™ treatment, the ActiveFX™ treatment uses a high energy CO2 laser beam that interacts with the skin’s surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin, making the healing process much faster.
What are benefits of Active/DeepFX™?
Active/DeepFX™ causes collagen contraction and improves skin tone and texture while simultaneously reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Noticeable effects of collagen contraction gradually build over time. Most people continue to show improvement up to six months after the procedure. Results of treatment can be maximized with proper sun protection.
Where can Active/DeepFX™ be used?
Active/DeepFX™ is commonly used on the face, neck, upper chest, hands, arms, crows feet and around the lips.
What can you expect following Active/DeepFX™?
Following your Active/DeepFX™ treatment you may feel warmth similar to a sunburn. Your phototreated skin will begin to flake off within 2 days with a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen. Typically, a week is required of healing.
