FX ACTIVE is the last generation CO2 ultra pulse fractional laser for highly efficient facial resurfacing treatments.
Its ultra pulse and fractional system distinguishes it from other devices on the market, making it safer and more efficient. Its exclusive Cool-Scan system for laser energy delivery on the skin makes for a less aggressive treatment and a minimum amount of downtime. Due to the above features, we can benefit from the advantages of CO2 without the risks involved in older systems with better efficiency and recovery speed (limited erythema, no secretions and an excellent general well-being). The device is extremely versatile, allowing for personalised treatments, adapting them to each patient’s skin singularity.
Treatment is carried out in one 10 to 30 minute session, according to the surface to be treated, and requires no more than a topical anaesthetic cream. After treatment, the area is spread with Vaseline and the patient can return home. They can return to normal day to day activities 5 to 7 days later. Check ups should be held 5, 15 and 30 days after treatment. The patient should use sunscreen.
The only possible complication is post-treatment hyperpigmentation of the skin, associated with exposure to the sun. This would slow down the recovery process as it requires treatment with whitening peelings (although the patient can continue with normal activity wearing light makeup).
