Facial Resurfacing-Active FX
ActiveFX is ideal for you if you:
Active FX is for you if you:
  • have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work,
  • want noticeable results with minimal downtime,
  • want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity

What is ActiveFX?
ActiveFX is a fractional laser procedure performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. 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, and tighten the skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

What are the benefits of ActiveFX? ActiveFX treatment produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
  • Causes immediate skin tightening
  • Reduces wrinkles,fine lines, and deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
  • Restores the skin to a healthy youthful-looking state

The results of ActiveFX laser treatment are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can persist for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation, which leads to continued inner tightening – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-5 months after the procedure.

What can you expect from ActiveFX?
Our physicians perform the procedure in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 30-40 minutes before the ActiveFX procedure begins. There is little to no painassociated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your photo damaged skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 3-5 days, your doctor will probably let you wear make-up. Pinkness should be gone in about a week.
