Active FX

What is Active FX?

Active FX laser yields remarkable, long-lasting results. With just one treatment, patients will see significant improvement to overall skin elasticity, tone and texture.

What Does Active FX Treat?

Active FX is our most powerful ablative laser and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. The Active FX ablates several layers of damaged skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin and dramatically improve collagen production. Patients getting an Active Fx treatment can expect:

  • Reduction of fine lines and deeper wrinkles
  • Reduction of acne scarring
  • Reduction of hyperpigmentation such as sun damage and age spots

Improvement of the overall skin tone and tightening

How Does Active FX Work?

With an ActiveFX treatment, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small ‘bridges’ of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

Active FX with PRP

Improve your Active FX results further with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). PRP involves the use of a patient’s own blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration while also activating your own anti-aging stem cells. This concentrated serum is applied to the skin in combination with the Active FX treatment to enhance results and accelerate healing.

What to Expect

An Active FX treatment takes approximately 1 hour. You will be asked to arrive early to allow time for numbing of the area. We use a topical numbing cream which provides for a comfortable treatment experience.

During treatment you will feel a heating sensation. Following treatment expect to feel warmth similar to a sunburn. Skin will be red for 7-10 days following treatment. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your skin will begin to flake at 5-7 days following treatment. After about 4-7 days, you can begin wearing makeup.

While some positive effects of the treatment will be visible right away, others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most patients continue to show improvement up to 6 months after treatment.
