ActiveFX™, DeepFX™, TotalFX™

Active FX CO2 Laser is typically a one-time procedure for resurfacing and smoothing the skin. Active FX also improves fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, rough skin texture, poor tone, and skin laxity. Active FX CO2 Laser is the treatment of choice for age-related deep lines, hard-to-erase lip lines, sun damage, and sagging face and neck skin. By treating skin with microscopic laser columns instead of full surface tissue removal, patients can receive the benefits of the latest advances in laser technology – without the lengthy downtime and recovery. 

Deep FX Co2 Laser treatment is also used in a fractional form to treat deep lines, wrinkles, and scarring. Total FX CO2 Laser treatment is a combination of the Active FX and Deep FX and is perfect for a patient who has both surface textural changes of aging such as fine lines, rough skin, poor tone, and discoloration as well as deep lines and wrinkles or scars.
