Active FX is the gold standard in laser resurfacing. It can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots, and other irregularities on the face, neck and chest. By removing sun damage with fractional technology, it stimulates the formation of new and healthy skin and new collagen.
ActiveFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for the active person. It is a fractional laser treatment, meaning only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small areas of skin “untouched” allowing for a faster healing process and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. The treatment causes the upper layer of skin to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.
ActiveFX™ is a fractional CO2 laser treatment that represents one of the latest and most promising advances in dermatology for the elimination of signs of aging. During the procedure, a fractional laser gently removes the top layer of the skin, revealing the fresh, healthy layer underneath and thereby reducing the appearance of brown age spots, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and other damage or discoloration. After a treatment session, skin looks smooth, supple, and healthy. ActiveFX™ is popular among patients who lead a busy lifestyle and are looking for a laser skin resurfacing procedure that results in minimal downtime.
