ActiveFX fractional CO2 laser is a high-energy beam of laser light that interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthier looking skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small areas of untouched skin. This allows for a much faster healing process and enables you to return to normal activities sooner. The ActiveFX laser noticeably improves tone, texture and stimulates new collagen formation.Contact Us to Schedule a Consultation
The ActiveFX treatment is performed in our office on an outpatient basis. Oral medications, topical anesthetics and skin blocks are administered to alleviate any discomfort associated with the procedure. During the treatment, abnormal tissue will be removed and will stimulate new collagen growth with only one pass of the laser beam. This will also provide better elasticity and support for the skin. The ActiveFX treatment settings target and vaporize water in the cells of the uppermost layer of skin, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin.
Patients can anticipate a total healing time of about 5 days, and they will begin to notice their desired results. Improvement in the skin’s tone and texture will continue to improve months after their treatment with the proper care of their skin such as avoiding the harmful effects of sunlight.
