Treatments are performed at our medical led skin clinic Dublin with application of topical anesthetic cream 30-40 minutes before the ActiveFX or DeepFX laser resurfacing procedure begins. Cool air is applied to the area throughout the procedure to aid comfort. There is little to no discomfort associated with the procedure – most clients experience heat for a few hours after treatment.

In terms of treatment results it is important for clients to have realistic expectations of recovery time, discomfort and results. Many clients may be satisfied with results from a single laser resurfacing treatment while treatments specifically targeting acne scars may take multiple treatments to achieve desired results at 3-6 month intervals.

As with most resurfacing procedures, whether chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing, the deeper the treatments goes, the more effective the results and the more downtime.
