About the treatment
At The Laser and Skin Clinic Dublin, we use the Ultrapulse Encore machine by Lumenis which allows different levels of intensity for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing. Ultrapulse Encore CO2 laser has two settings ActiveFX and DeepFX. ActiveFX focuses on the superficial layer of the skin. It is still ablative, meaning it creates a “controlled wound” to this skin, in turn triggering the body’s natural healing processes, accelerating collagen production renewal and cell renewal. By targeting the top layer of the skin ActiveFX laser skin resurfacing can effectively reduce pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and pore size. Treatment with ActiveFX can also achieve skin tightening.
DeepFX penetrates deeper into the lower part of the skin. This stimulates collagen production to help improve the appearance of damaged skin and is mainly used to treat scarring and acne scars.
TotalFX treatment combines both ActiveFX and DeepFX in the same treatment session. It is the ultimate laser resurfacing treatment for severe scarring or damaged skin, which completely resurfaces the skin.
The new generation of carbon dioxide cosmetic skin lasers are the most effective and the most reliable in the world with The Laser and Skin Clinic being one of the few clinics to offer both ActiveFX and DeepFX laser skin resurfacing in Ireland. Improving the tone, texture and tightness of your skin in a single treatment, ActiveFX and DeepFX CO2 laser treatment is considered the gold standard and most advanced fractional laser in laser skin resurfacing.
