DeepFX™ | ActiveFX™ are two fractional resurfacing solutions of the UltraPulse® and AcuPulse™ systems, developed by the pioneer of aesthetic medicine and trusted by leading professionals around the world
With DeepFX™ | ActiveFX™ your physician can offer you amazing results on a range of skin aging concerns, from deep wrinkles to fine lines and uneven skin tone and texture. DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™ affect different layers of your skin, depending on your specific concern.
Lumenis® CO2 laser procedures are not suitable for everyone, for example patients who have taken Accutane® (Isotretinoin) within the past 6-12 months, or had a history of keloid formation. Risks may include change of pigmentation, infection, redness, textural changes or scarring. Be sure to consult your physician regarding treatment options available and related contraindications and risks based on your individual concerns and medical history, before choosing a treatment.
The main advantage of DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™ is that results are visible after one single treatment. As your skin heals following the treatment, you will begin to notice an improvement in wrinkles, fine lines, tone and texture.
Typically, you should expect to continue to see improvement for up to 18 months following the procedure.
Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm and may be slightly red and swollen, depending on your customized treatment settings.
To support you in the healing process, a daily skincare routine should be prescribed.
The Lumenis® fractional laser creates microscopic channels that trigger the process of new collagen and elastic fibers production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. The result is deep dermal regeneration that dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance.
The unique power and precision of Lumenis® technology enables your physician to customize treatments for your specific skin concerns and needs, with optimal comfort and healing time.
To minimize discomfort during deeper treatments, a local anesthetic should be applied to numb your skin. Depending on the treatment area, you can expect the session to last approximately 20-30 minutes.
During the treatment you may feel a warm sensation as the laser is applied but you should not feel any discomfort
Wounded warrior Pat Wilkinson was injured in Iraq in 2008, losing his right leg and suffering severe burns on his limbs. Thanks to Lumenis’ UltraPulse CO2 laser, the pain from his surgical scars and burn scars, as well as his range of motion improved significantly, even after the first treatment.
Tanya St. Arnauld talks about her amazing recovery from a vicious acid attack. Having experienced severe burns on more than 70% of her body, she has been treated by Dr. Jill S. Waibel with the Lumenis UltraPulse CO2 laser to regain her range of motion and greatly improve the appearance and texture of her scars.
