As we age, changes deep in the dermis accumulate leading to visible signs that include fine lines, deep wrinkles, texture irregularities and scarring. To adequately treat these problems, treatments need to reach the deep layers of your skin and renew the collagen foundation. With the new fractional DeepFx™ treatments, your physician is able to treat the deep layers of your skin, but keep downtime to a minimum. Now, deep wrinkles, skin texture and scars are dramatically improved after just one treatment.
What is DeepFX™?
DeepFX™ is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams 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. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.
How many treatments are required to
DeepFX™ is a single-treatment procedure for most, but ideal
results may be obtained with two or more treatments within a given period of time.
What are the advantages of having the DeepFX™ procedure?
This procedure allows those with a busy lifestyle to be treated in a
single treatment, with noticeable results and minimal downtime. DeepFX™ is ideal for those wanting an alternative to surgery. The DeepFX™ procedure can be combined with an extensive selection of premium cosmetic treatments that complement its results on the face
When can I return to normal activities?
You can likely resume normal activities within a week of treatment. Some patients experience scabbing, minimal redness or mild swelling of the treated areas that diminishes within a few days.
What is the treatment like?
A topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment to aid with comfort. As the laser beams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Most patients experience mild discomfort. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a deep sunburn. During the following days you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and improvements in wrinkles, fine lines and scars will be noticeable.
How long is the procedure?
Depending on the location and dimensions of the area to be treated, the procedure may require a few minutes to an hour. During your consultation, your desired results will be discussed and the length of your treatment will be determined by your physician.
When can I expect to see results and how long will they last?
With the DeepFX™ procedure you can expect to have improved texture and tone in the first few weeks. Measurable tightening improvements appear gradually within 2 to 6 months. Results are long-term and can last for many years with proper sun protection.
