ActiveFX/DeepFX Fractional Technology
ActiveFX and DeepFX are procedures performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities, and tighten the skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables the patient to get back to normal activities sooner.
The Benefits of ActiveFX/DeepFX
- Causes immediate skin tightening
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
- Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
- Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
- Restores the skin to a healthy youthful-looking state
The results of Active/DeepFX laser treatment are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can persist for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation, which leads to continued inner tightening – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-5 months after the procedure.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin 30 – 40 minutes prior to treating the skin. There is little pain associated with the procedure- most patients say they feel a warmth similar to a sunburn. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your photo-damaged skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After 3-5 days, most women are able to wear makeup. Pinkness should be gone in about 3 weeks.
