Active FX is the gold standard in laser resurfacing. It can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots, and other irregularities on the face, neck and chest. By removing sun damage with fractional technology, it stimulates the formation of new and healthy skin and new collagen. This provides greater elasticity and supports which results in more youthful, firmer, tighter skin. Significant results are seen with just one treatment and compared to older CO2 lasers, Active FX has much less downtime and aftercare. In one week you can see incredible results that used to take 3 or more weeks of healing!
For those looking to go a little deeper, Deep FX is another option in CO2 laser resurfacing that penetrates to the lower part of the collagen layer to repair deep lines and wrinkles, acne scars and scars from surgery or trauma. Effective as a standalone treatment, Deep FX can also work in combination with Active FX (referred to as Total FX) to achieve optimal results.
If you aren’t sure which approach is right for you, simply schedule a consultation to pinpoint your specific needs. Whether you opt for Active FX, Deep FX or Total FX, each procedure is performed in the comfort of our laser suite with both oral sedation and topical anesthetics. The procedure can take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes, and once complete; patients will experience a sensation similar to a sunburn. Post-treatment aftercare is carefully designed by our staff. The recovery process concludes with a comprehensive consultation and long-term skin care and available treatments to continue improving the health and beauty of your skin.
