What is Active FX?

ActiveFX is a fractional laser procedure performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots, and other irregularities.
It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

What is Deep FX?

Deep FX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser micro-beams 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. Because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time is limited to a few days.

At Akron Area Oral, Maxillofacial & Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center, we perform the procedure with intravenous sedation. Your home care (provided with your treatment) will be reviewed with you prior to the procedure. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, you should be able to wear makeup in about a week.Treatment results are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can persist for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-6 months after the procedure.
