Total, Active and Deep FX
TotalFX, ActiveFX, and DeepFX
TotalFX is a fractional CO2 laser procedure that combines both the ActiveFX and DeepFX treatment.
During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots and other skin irregularities. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen to continue improvement over time.
What’s the difference between ActiveFx, DeepFx and Total FX?
ActiveFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for the active person. It is a fractional laser treatment, meaning only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small areas of skin “untouched” allowing for a faster healing process and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. The treatment causes the upper layer of skin to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.
DeepFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for deeper wrinkles and scars that have a dermal component. This treatment also uses a fractional pattern to aid in the regeneration process. The deep heating associated with DeepFX may cause immediate collagen tightening and long-term collagen remodeling. The patient can expect softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, with improved skin texture.
Total FX combines the Active FX and Deep FX systems. The results are fractional resurfacing of the surface of your skin, removing sun damage and brown spots, as well as the deeper skin, removing wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone.
