Unless you have amazing genes, your skin is likely showing its age as you get older. This may be a completely normal part of life, but that does not mean that it should be accepted. Luckily, laser skin treatments now make it possible to restore a youthful appearance to your aging skin. If you are looking to get amazing results from your laser skin resurfacing treatments, then you may want to consider Deep FX and/or Active FX™.
Deep FX and Active FX™ are cosmetic procedures that use a fractional laser to repair your skin issues. Active FX™ will help eliminate fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots. If you have more severe skin issues, then you may be a strong candidate for Deep FX. While both procedures are performed in the same way, the Deep FX laser is designed to penetrate deeper into the skin. This makes it the perfect option if you have deeper wrinkles or scarred skin.
The problem with most laser skin resurfacing procedures is that they are not very flexible. If you do not have the right skin tone or complexion, then the laser will not be able to completely fix the blemishes on your skin. There can also be issues if your flaws are set too deep into the skin. These common problems with laser skin resurfacing won’t occur with Deep FX and Active FX™ thanks to the different skin penetration depths provided by both lasers. You may even be able to combine both treatments during the same appointment to get the best results possible.
The Deep FX and Active FX™ lasers can greatly improve your skin tone and texture. You may even see these changes as soon as you get home. It will take a while before your major skin problems start to disappear because the body must produce more collagen. You can expect to see your wrinkles, scars and age spots go away in the months after your Deep FX and/or Active FX™ laser skin resurfacing treatment. Your new, beautiful appearance will last for quite a long time if you maintain a good skincare routine.
