DeepFX is a fractional laser and skin resurfacing treatment that is designed to treat conditions that originate in the bottom most layers of the skin. It is used to treat deep wrinkles, burns, scars, and pores. Fractional lasers work by sending pulses of microscopic light into the skin, while leaving the surrounding skin intact and speeding up the healing process.
By penetrating deep into the skin, DeepFX laser skin resurfacing treatments will stimulate the production of collagen, which results in the improvement of wrinkles. Collagen is what gives the skin the appearance of fullness and smoothness. The amount of collagen that the body naturally produces begins to decline as we age which is what causes wrinkles to develop. Exposure to sun further depletes collagen. By resurfacing these imperfect areas of the skin, the body kicks into repair mode and begins to heal the area by producing brand new fresh collagen and more youthful skin leading to firmer more elastic and plump skin.
DeepFX treatments can also be used to improve the appearance of the skin when scarring is present. The collagen that is produced by the body in response to the heat from the laser will fill in the scars, including scars caused by acne.
At Torrey Pines Dermatology, these treatments are done in the comfort of our office in La Jolla, as an outpatient treatment. We take extra measures to ensure our patients have a pain-free laser treatment and are at ease throughout. After their appointment, patients can return to their everyday activities, but redness and mild swelling are to be expected for the first week.
