Active FX/Deep FX

ActiveFX — Lumenis UltraPulse Encore CO2

What is ActiveFX?

With ActiveFX treatment, a high-energy beam of laser light 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. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

Look Youthful

Active FX CO2 Fractional Laser Treatment is the most advanced laser technology available for improving skin texture, tone and tightness. In just one treatment, our patients are seeing rapid results with smoother tighter skin and improvement of resistant brown spots. This is the first viable non-surgical alternative we have seen to a face lift with significant benefits. It tightens the face, upper and lower eyelids, jaw line and neck with very minimal downtime.

What can you expect following ActiveFX?

You may feel warmth similar to sunburn following your ActiveFX treatment. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your skin will begin to peel within 2 days. After about 4-7 days, you should be back in makeup.

ActiveFX Benefits

ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin in one treatment:

  • Causes immediate collagen contraction
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin

Results of treatment can be maximized with proper sun protection. Most improvements become visible right away, whereas others—such as new collagen formation—build gradually and result in continued smoothing over time. Improvement can be seen up to six months after the procedure.

DeepFX™ — Lumenis UltraPulse Encore CO2™

What is DeepFX?

DeepFX is an extension of the ActiveFX treatment. It is used on more focused areas of wrinkles, folds, or scars where a deeper treatment is needed for correction. The procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.

Benefits of DeepFX

  • Results in a single treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Improves scars, wrinkles, and texture
  • Deep dermal stimulation
  • Dramatic results
