Imagine a new born baby….flawless, beautiful baby skin. Fast forward 40 years: too much sun and too little protection equates to fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, little red vessels and a sallow complexion. 20 years ago we had no answers and no way to turn back time. Today…. we do!!
Our most popular procedure is called Active FX. It is a laser that literally turns back the hands of time and helps you to recreate your baby fresh skin. Active FX is a resurfacing procedure we do in the office that gets rid of brown spots, small red vessels and tightens fine lines in wrinkles. In addition to all that it eliminates the little brown “barnacles” that grow on the skin after years of sun exposure. Most important of all, Active FX gets rid of the sun damage deep in the skin that can cause precancer and skin-cancer later.
For patients that want even deeper treatment, we add on another component called the Deep FX. The Deep FX is incorporated into the Active FX treatment and targets areas with deep folds or difficult to treat areas such as around the mouth or eyes. The best part of this procedure is that only topical numbing cream is needed and patients are extremely comfortable throughout the treatment. The skin peels for about 5-7 days after the laser is performed and at one week post-laser, patients are ready to go back to work with brand new, beautiful skin. The other amazing thing about Active and Deep FX is that these procedures are long-lasting. On average results last about 3 years.
What about safety? Both Active and Deep FX are extremely safe to use on all skin types. Because of the precise focus of the laser and the advanced technology, it is virtually impossible to cause side effects or damage to the skin. Mild redness with peeling is typical and expected. Our post-laser skin care regimen ensures that patients have optimal results with minimal side effects.
Following the laser, we at Torrey Pines Dermatology, work as a team to ensure that we develop a custom skin care regimen for each patient so that optimal results are achieved and maintained for several years.
