ActiveFX Laser Skin Resurfacing

Q.What is ActiveFX?

A.During an ActiveFX fractional resurfacing procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin's surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.
With ActiveFX, only a fraction of the skin's surface is treated. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small "bridges" of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.

Q. Is ActiveFX right for me?

A.ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:

• have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time.
• want noticeable results with minimal downtime.
• want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, or acne scars.

ActiveFX Benefits

ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:
• Causes immediate skin tightening.
• Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines.
• Noticeably improves skin tone and texture.
• Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin.
• Reduces acne scars.

ActiveFX results are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can last for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others - such as new collagen formation - build up gradually and results in continued smoothing over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to 6 months after the procedure.

How To Get Rid Of Tribal Marks On The Cheeks

Hello everyone.I had the opportunity to interview a seasoned expert in the field of Dermatologic Surgeon on various issues concerning skin problems,especially facial marks.He was glad to answer most of my questions and he is still very much in the house.

It is my believe that you as a regular visitor to my blog will derive immense benefit from the answers he provided.Please join the members of this site so that you will receive regular updates as they are available.Here we go:

Q.I have had facial marks all my life. I have 2 on the right side of my cheek and one on the left,although they are sometimes fade when I take pictures.But I will still like to get read of them.Is this possible?

A.Yes.The best way to get rid of tribal marks on the skin will depend on if the mark (scar) is raised, as in a keloid or depressed. Your tribal marks look like depressed scars, though I cannot tell from the picture how deep and how long they are.

Your best treatment option would be a laser resurfacing treatment like the TotalFX CO2 fractional resurfacing treatment. It combines DeepFX for collagen stimulation and smoothing out wrinkles and deep scars as well as ActiveFX for correction of textural and pigmentary changes.
Depending on the depth of your scars, you would need multiple treatments.

Tribal marks are usually made with various pigments placed into the dermis. The best option for removal is a q-switched laser. Caution will have to be used with your skin type so as to not cause hypopigmentation. I hope this information helps.

Q.I have heard of Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing.Can you explain this?

A.Our skin changes over time, losing its youthful look and giving way to brown spots, wrinkles and laxity. In recent years there has been a growing number of aesthetic procedures available to treat the skin. ActiveFX - the result of the latest advances in laser technology - is a new procedure that yields remarkable, long lasting results with just one treatment. A fast, office-based procedure with minimal patient downtime, ActiveFX is your single-treatment solution for beautiful, younger-looking skin.
