ActiveFX is a Fractional CO2 laser for
• Reduction of fine lines and deeper wrinkles
• Reduction of acne scarring
• Reduction of hyperpigmentation such as sun damage, age spots, redness and melasma
• Improvement of the overall skin tone and tightening
ActiveFX yields remarkable, long lasting results with just one treatment. 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.
You may feel warmth similar to a sunburn following your ActiveFX treatment. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 4-7 days, you can begin wearing makeup. While some positive effects of the treatment will be visible right away, others - such as new collagen formation - build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most patients continue to show improvement up to 6 months after treatment.
