ACTIVEFX

ActiveFX is the latest advancement in minimal-downtime fractional laser treatments for aging skin. The goal of the ActiveFX fractional laser treatment is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. 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. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time.

IS ACTIVEFX FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENT RIGHT FOR ME?

ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
• Want to improve fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead.
• Want to improve crow’s feet around the eyes, pucker marks (smoker’s lines) and frown lines
• Want to treat brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
• Want to reduce the appearance of scars, especially acne scars
• Have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
• Want noticeable results with minimal downtime


HOW DOES IT WORK?

With the 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. The laser also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen, which results in continued improvement in skin texture over time.


WHERE ON THE BODY CAN ACTIVEFX FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENT BE USED?

The ActiveFX can be used to treat areas such as the face, neck and chest.


WHAT IS AN ACTIVEFX FRACTIONAL LASER TREATMENT LIKE?

During an ActiveFX Treatment, a topical anesthetic cream is applied 30-40 minutes before the procedure beings. There is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. The downtime for this procedure is typically 4-7 days. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your phototreated skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 4-7 days, you can start to wear make-up and the pinkness is often gone in about a week.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF ACTIVEFX?

Active FX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
• 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


WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FOLLOWING ACTIVEFX?

The results of the ActiveFX CO2 Treatments are dramatic 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 six months after the procedure.

DEEPFX

DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The laser is able to treat the deep layers or your skin, but keep downtime to a minimum. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to dramatically improve wrinkles, skin texture and scars. The CO2 laser microbeams precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin, which stimulates a cascade of healing response that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation through the entire treatment area.

DeepFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
• Want to improve fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead.

• Want to treat brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
• Want to improve scars, wrinkles and texture
• Want deep dermal stimulation and dramatic results
• Want results in a single treatment, with minimal downtime


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The DeepFX procedure uses microbeams to treat only a fraction of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process. Each laser pulse removes a narrow column of tissue, while simultaneously treating surrounding skin. This deep heating causes immediate collagen contraction and long-term collagen remodeling. The result is softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, and improved skin texture.

Immediately following your treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a deep sunburn. Over the next several days, you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and you will notice improvement in your winkles, fine lines and scars.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DEEPFX?
