Fractional CO2 Laser

One of the latest advances in laser technology is a new procedure called Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing. Our system, ActiveFX, is a fast, office-based procedure with less patient downtime than older resurfacing procedures.. ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option for conditions such as acne scarring, dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity.

With fractional Co2 resurfacing, only a fraction of the skin's surface is treated. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small "bridges" of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

During an ActiveFX fractional resurfacing procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin's surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.

The UltraPulse Encore has broadened the applications for CO2 laser technology. This laser not only delivers superior tissue effects when treating moderate to deep wrinkles, but when performing an ActiveFX it also addresses fine lines and uneven pigment. By producing a controlled superficial laser peel the ActiveFX with CO2 Lite improves skin tone and surface imperfections with only minimal downtime.

ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin, causing immediate skin tightening. You will see a noticeable improvement of skin tone & texture as well as a reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. Deeper frown lines will also soften. Fractional Co2 resurfacing stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin.
