How to Achieve Noticeable Results with Minimal Downtime?

Sun damaged skin

Spending time outdoors without proper skin protection can add years to your skin, including deep wrinkles and sun damage. Although wrinkles are a natural part of aging, too much sun exposure can cause premature wrinkling and make even the most confident among us feel self-conscious about our skin. There is no substitute for practicing safe face and skincare, but the good news is that treatments are available to reverse wrinkling and sun damage. Laser therapy is a great sun damaged skin treatment.

Just one treatment of ActiveFX can improve deep wrinkles, fine lines, and skin texture. Surgery is not necessary to get amazing results. If you are looking for a treatment that is immediate and requires minimal downtime, ActiveFX is a great opportunity to treat sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, and scarring.

What to Expect from ActiveFX?

ActiveFX is a fractional resurfacing solution, a facial treatment that can drastically reduce the appearance of wrinkled skin and sun damage. This treatment works by directing lasers onto the skin, which stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace the old, damaged cells. It penetrates deep below the dermis of the skin and allows the skin’s natural healing abilities to stimulate collagen.

The result is smooth skin with an improved tone and texture, reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, removal of sun damage, smaller-looking pores, and overall improved tightness of the skin. All in one treatment! This treatment can remove 10 years of skin damage and age from your skin.

The ActiveFX laser is one of the deepest penetrating lasers available. Here’s what you can expect from your treatment:

  1. To ensure a comfortable experience, your doctor will probably numb your treatment area with a topical cream. Pain blockers may be injected before the treatment begins.
  2. Your doctor will move the laser in a grid pattern over your treatment area until the entire area is treated. Depending on the number of areas to be treated, the procedure may take up to an hour or two.
  3. Immediately after the treatment, your doctor will cover your skin in a hydrating gel. By the next day, you will be able to wash your face. Patients should not expect any pain after the treatment but may experience some itching.
  4. After about 2 days, you should expect some of the treated skin to itch and peel off. In 4-7 days, you will be able to wear makeup again. Pinkness may persist for up to a week.
  5. Most of the effects of the ActiveFX treatment are visible immediately after the treatment. Other effects of the treatment, however, such as the formation of new collagen, build up gradually. Most patients will continue to show improvement up to 6 months later.

If you suffer from wrinkles, sun damage, or acne scars, ActiveFX may be a good treatment option for you. By removing the top layer of damaged skin and revealing your healthy skin below. So, your skin will look smoother, more even, and younger after just one treatment. Your results will be immediately noticeable, and the best part is that you will be back on your feet in no time.
