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 skin resurfacing technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

What are the benefits of ActiveFX?
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.
