DeepFX™ — Lumenis UltraPulse Encore CO2™
What is DeepFX™?
DeepFX™ is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.
DeepFX™ results DeepFX™ produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
- Improves wrinkles, scars and folds
- Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
- Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
Benefits of DeepFX™
- Results in a single treatment
- Minimal downtime
- Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
- Deep dermal stimulation
- Dramatic results
How does DeepFX™ work?
DeepFX™ procedures involve treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process. Each laser pulse removes a narrow column of tissue while simultaneously treating surrounding skin. This deep heating causes immediate collagen contraction and long-term collagen remodeling. The result is softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, and improved skin texture.
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.
DeepFX™ is typically performed in a physician’s office and lasts for about 20 minutes. Your doctor may use an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort.
Where can DeepFX™ be used?
DeepFX™ is commonly used on the face, around the lips, for crows feet, the neck, upper chest, hands and arms. Ask your doctor if DeepFX™ is right for you.
Who can get a DeepFX™ treatment?
DeepFX™ is safe for most people; however it shouldn’t be used if you have taken Accutane™ in the past 12 months, have a history of keloid formation, have a history of poor wound healing, or demonstrate excessive or unusually prolonged erythema, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation upon laser test patching.
