What is Total FX C02 Laser Resurfacing?
A two-part treatment that emits columns of laser energy in a fractional pattern at different depths through the skin. Tissue ablation in these columns stimulates a healing process that tightens the skin and speeds the formation of new, healthy tissue. It’s a total solution for fine lines, wrinkles, scars, tone, texture and pigmentation in one treatment. Fractional treatments only treat a fraction of the skin, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aids in the healing process and reduces healing times. This technology stimulates a cascade of healing responses without completely disrupting the skin surface, minimizing the downtime.
“Very good care and service and they make sure you are comfortable with the procedure. I was nervous about having fractional CO2 laser resurfacing to treat facial redness and frown lines, but so far I have been pleased with my experience. Your positive reputation and experienced providers are why. Only thing that would make it better…movies and popcorn:)?”

How Does it Work?
The CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is used in different ways. For fine lines, brown age spots and superficial textural changes, Active FX uses a larger beam to treat the upper layer of skin to reduce unwanted pigmentation, promote new skin regeneration, and improve fine lines and texture. For scars and deep wrinkles, Deep FX creates a very narrow laser microbeam that removes columns of tissue deep into the layers of the skin. The body then heals the channel which stimulates immediate new collagen growth. As skin heals, patients notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, tone, and texture. Results will continue to improve for up to six months following the procedure.
