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 typically smoother, more vibrant, and younger looking.
ActiveFX is beneficial because it
- Creates the formation of collagen
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
- Softens frown lines
- Evens and smooths skin tone
- Treats acne scars
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 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.
