How Laser Resurfacing Works
Laser resurfacing is a precise, effective and long-lasting procedure for skin rejuvenation. The Lumenis carbon dioxide laser precisely and evenly removes the surface of the skin, layer by layer, which stimulates healing and resurfacing of the outer skin layers.
It's an excellent treatment for a wide range of skin conditions, including wrinkles, photodamage and acne scarring. With fractional technology, the laser leaves small bridges of skin untouched, allowing the skin to heal and recover faster than ever before.
What can I expect after Active FX treatment?
Because Active FX uses a fractionated pattern to apply energy, the healing process is much faster. You can to get back to your normal activities quicker than laser treatments of the past.
