Deep FX involves a more aggressive approach and penetration of the skin is deeper. The Deep FX is used to treat deeper wrinkles and scars. It is particularly useful on acne scars.
Since the Deep FX penetrates a little deeper into the skin, the downtime is slightly longer (7-10 days of peeling and redness to the skin) compared to the Active FX alone.
Is Deep FX right for me?
Deep FX laser treatment is best for reducing:
The deep FX also results in deep dermal skin heating which stimulates new collagen formation. Collagen forms the framework or building blocks of the skin and can be damaged by the sun and with aging. New collagen formation results in tighter, firmer, healthier skin.
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.
How long is recovery after Deep FX?
Makeup can generally be applied in 4-7 days. Expect some mild swelling, redness and discomfort for about 1 week. These post-treatment effects can be managed with ice packs and prescription medications if necessary.
What is the difference between Deep FX, Active FX, and Total FX?
ActiveFX is a laser treatment for the active person. It's a single CO2 laser resurfacing treatment that provides great results.
DeepFX is a laser treatment for scars, deep wrinkles and lesions. By penetrating deeper into the problem areas, Deep FX can eradicate these issues more effectively.
Total FX combines Active FX and Deep FX systems for a total rejuvenation. The treatment can address superficial sun damage and brown spots, as well as the deep wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin texture.
