DeepFX | Total FX Laser

As we age, changes deep in the dermis accumulate leading to visible signs that include fine lines, deep wrinkles, texture irregularities and scarring. To adequately treat these problems, treatments need to reach deep layers of your skin and renew the collagen foundation.

Previous treatments produced great results but were limited in appeal due to lengthy recovery times. With the NEW fractional DeepFX treatments, your physician is able to treat the deep layers of your skin, but keep downtime to a minimum.

Now, deep wrinkles, skin texture and scars are dramatically improved after just one treatment.

Benefits of DeepFX

  • Results in a single treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
  • Deep dermal stimulation
  • Dramatic results

What is DeepFX?

DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedures 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.

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 surround 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.

What is a DeepFX treatment like?

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. As the microbeams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a deep sunburn. Over the next several days you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and will notice improvement in your wrinkles, fine lines and scars.

You will notice immediate softening of wrinkles, fine lines and scars as the skin heals from the treatment. In addition, the skin responds by stimulating organic growth of new collagen that continues for up to six months. Results of the treatment are long-lasting and with proper skin care can last for many years.

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.

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

UltraPulse ActiveFX

Our skin changes over time, losing its youthful look and giving way to brown spots, wrinkles and laxity. In recent years there has been a growing number of aesthetic procedures available to treat the skin. 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.

ActiveFX might be 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 is ActiveFX?

With ActiveFX treatment, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin's surface causing the upper light 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.

These benefits of ActiveFX produce 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.

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.
