Active FX CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing improves sun-damaged skin and provides skin tightening without the prolonged downtime associated with traditional laser resurfacing.
At the Langdon Center, we are always seeking the latest and most effective technology to achieve the best results for our patients. We offer several options for Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing to treat fine lines and deep wrinkles, age spots, sun damage and more. These options include:
ActiveFX: This controlled superficial fractional CO2 laser peel is effective at reducing fine lines, uneven skin tone, and surface imperfections, and requires minimal downtime. ActiveFX affects a larger percentage of surface area than most fractional laser treatments and does not penetrate as deep into the skin as conventional laser resurfacing.
Enhanced ActiveFX: For clients looking for a more powerful laser resurfacing treatment, there’s the Enhanced ActiveFX CO2 laser. In both regular and Enhanced ActiveFX treatments, a laser scanner distributes the laser energy evenly over the entire face. However, the main difference in the Enhanced ActiveFX treatment is that the energy is delivered at a faster rate, which produces greater heat. As a result, the skin contracts even more than with standard fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatments, leading to greater skin tightening results.
The Enhanced ActiveFX treatment is typically done over the entire face except for the upper eyelids and the eyebrows. Because there is a significant contraction of skin, the Enhanced ActiveFX treatment will smooth the majority of facial wrinkles, fine lines, and creases.
DeepFX: This advanced fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment penetrates deeper into the skin to improve even deep wrinkles and severe acne scars. Results can be seen even after a single treatment, making this an ideal procedure for clients who want powerful results in less time. Final results from this procedure can be seen in three to four months.
TotalFX: Both ActiveFX and DeepFX are combined to provide superficial and deep fractional treatment, reducing acne scars, improving skin texture and tone, and reducing both fine lines and deeper wrinkles.
