What is ActiveFX?

ActiveFX, also known as fractional resurfacing, is a cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to target specific areas of damage skin with just one session and minimal downtime. The procedure can be used to treat age spots, scars, wrinkles and skin tone variations, leaving skin smoother and more radiant.

Target areas for ActiveFX include the face, neck, chest and hands. This treatment can be combined with other treatments like peels or fillers for maximum benefit.

It can also be used on its own to produce significant improvement to the skin's surface. The best candidates for this procedure are men and women who are in good health, do not smoke and have realistic expectations about what the procedure may do.

What benefits can a patient expect from ActiveFX?

ActiveFX can provide a variety of benefits, from treating acne scars to helping the skin achieve a more radiant appearance.

Specific areas to target with ActiveFX include:

  • Age spots
  • Skin tone variation/pigmentation concerns
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Static wrinkles (those that do not change with facial movements)
  • Dynamic wrinkles (those that appear with facial movements)
  • Crow's feet
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Vascular conditions that can result in overall redness to the skin
  • Minor spider veins
  • In addition to the initial results of ActiveFX that include a smoother surface with less visible blemishes, the treatment also stimulates collagen production that tightens the skin and improves overall skin tone. These benefits will remain visible for months after the procedure is complete.
