Traditional Co2 lasers are associated with lengthy downtimes and high risk of side effects however; ActiveFX UltraPulse Encore by Lumenis offers a genius solution to this problem by delivering the energy through a series of micro beams in the form of “fractional laser”. The laser tricks the skin to believing it is wounded, leaving the skin in between the beams unaffected prompting a much faster healing process thereby stimulating and remodeling the skin’s own collagen production and this collagen remodeling can continue for 3-6 months following treatment.
ActiveFX laser resurfacing uses a high-energy beam of laser light that interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to shed off and regenerate a layer of new skin resulting in improved colour and texture. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to return to normal activities sooner.
This fractional laser resurfacing treatment can be applied to specific regions, such as under the eyes, upper lip, or to the entire face.
ActiveFX alone is not effective on deeper lines or acne scars. The precise accuracy of the DeepFX into each line or scar has the capacity to target deeper layers and to stimulate collagen and elastin. When combining ActiveFX and DeepFX it is possible to target deeper lines and scars to achieve superior results.
