Computerized Laser Scanning
The latest advancement in minimal downtime, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing for aging skin.
Our skin changes over time, losing its youthful look and giving way to brown spots, wrinkles and laxity. In recent years there has been a growing number of aesthetic procedures available to treat the skin. ActiveFX – the result of the latest advances in laser technology – is a new procedure that yields remarkable, long lasting results with just one treatment. A fast, office-based procedure with minimal patient downtime, ActiveFX is your single-treatment solution for beautiful younger-looking skin.
What is ActiveFX?
During an ActiveFX fractional resurfacing procedure, 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. With ActiveFX, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated. 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.
ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
- 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
ActiveFX results are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can last for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to 6 months after the procedure.
Is ActiveFX right for you?
ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
- have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
- want noticeable results with minimal downtime
- want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity
What can you expect from ActiveFX?
Most physicians perform the procedure in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 30-40 minutes before the ActiveFX procedure begins. There is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your photodamaged skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 4-7 days, your doctor will probably let you wear make-up. Pinkness should be gone in about a week.
