What is Active FX?

This treatment is considered the gold standard in laser skin resurfacing! You can see a drastic improvement in scars, fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and other hyperpigmentation. Expect to see a drastic improvement in elasticity and support, as this treatment can also tighten skin for a more youthful look.

A Fractional Carbon Dioxide Laser.

Active FX is an ablative CO2 laser which essentially removes the top, damaged layer of skin to reveal fresher, healthier skin underneath. It can help diminish brown spots and other discoloration.

How Does it Work?

Basically, Active FX helps stimulate collagen production in the dermis so you have a firmer and more even-toned facial or neck appearance. Sun damage and aging can take a toll on collagen levels in skin, which decline over time. With this treatment, you can actually stimulate new growth. The increase in collagen can smooth over scars and other skin irregularities that detract from the appearance.

How Does This Laser Compare to Older CO2 Lasers?

Active FX is an advanced procedure that performs at high efficiency to maximize patient comfort and success. Compared to the older generation of lasers, it incurs much less downtime. You can expect to see results within as little as a week.

How Will My Skin Look?*

You may expect to receive the following benefits from an Active FX skin resurfacing procedure in Plush Derma’s Los Angeles offices:

  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Less visible facial folds, such as smile lines
  • Less obvious smoker lines, vertical lip lines, frown lines
  • More even skin tone and texture
  • Less pigmented scars
  • Appearance of lifting around eye area or wherever skin slightly sags

Why is Active FX Safe?

Active FX is a laser treatment that is fractional, which means it only works on skin a portion at a time. This prevents damage by enabling controlled healing and avoiding greater side effects. Skin is replaced with newer layers, which can make a huge cosmetic difference! Cellular regeneration is part of the normal role of skin, which is a living and constantly evolving organ.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

You may experience a short recovery period where you feel uncomfortable with the skin, observing skin feels dry and appears slightly pink. Skin may flake off and may take some time to return to its normal appearance (although being rejuvenated and much improved). You should follow Dr. Reza’s aftercare instructions carefully. Some of these instructions are generic such as the directive to wear sun protection diligently and constantly hydrate the skin.

Who Should Receive Active FX?

If you have moderate to severe skin damage including creases, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, you may be a candidate for this treatment. Whether you want to treat a small portion of the face (like the eye area) or a large area (such as the décolletage), you can receive a treatment tailored to your needs. We recommend you follow the doctor’s advice on where to receive the treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Reza will examine you and base your candidacy on several factors: aesthetic need, medical history, active skin conditions, cosmetic history and other criteria.
