ActiveFX™ Lumenis UltraPulse Encore CO2
ActiveFX yields remarkable, long lasting results with just one treatment. A fast, office-based procedure with minimal patient downtime, ActiveFX is your single-treatment solution for wrinkled, sun-damaged skin.
A high-energy laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern over the surface of the treatment area, leaving areas of untouched skin to promote quicker healing.
Is ActiveFX right for you?
ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
- Have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
- Want noticeable results with minimal downtime
- Want to treat dyschromia, fine lines and wrinkles
What can you expect following ActiveFX?
You may feel warmth similar to sunburn following your ActiveFX treatment. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your phototreated skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 4-7 days, your doctor will probably let you wear make-up. Pinkness is often gone in about a week.
What is ActiveFX?
With 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.
ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
- Causes immediate collagen contraction
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
- Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
- Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
Results of treatment can be maximized with proper sun protection. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others—such as new collagen formation—build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to six months after the procedure.
