This revolutionary treatment provides patients with the opportunity to achieve softer, smoother skin in the safe and welcoming environment of one of our offices. Hear from patients who have undergone this treatment to learn more about how it works and how it could benefit you.
With the natural loss of collagen as our skin ages, fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. ActiveFX is a fractional CO₂ laser treatment designed to restore a youthful appearance to the skin.
With ActiveFX, high-energy beams of light are used to remove the top layer of skin to reveal the healthy skin underneath, which is smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking.
ActiveFX is beneficial because it
Redness and swelling are normal after treatment. After your procedure, the top layer of the skin will begin to shed within three to five days. The skin underneath will be pink but this will fade after two weeks. Over the next few months, the new collagen that is created in the treated area will further enhance your results.
Most patients experience the full benefit of ActiveFX after a single treatment, but additional treatments may be needed for those with deep acne scars and wrinkles.
