People in their 50s benefit from the DeepFX treatment which reduces the appearance of scars, deep lines around the mouth and skin growths and stimulates collagen production to tighten the skin without surgery. This targeted, concentrated treatment covers small areas with even deeper penetration than the ActiveFX treatment. The fraction CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a flow of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. Patients will notice results in a single treatment with minimal downtime.
This treatment process lasts for about 20 minutes. We will use an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort. As the microbeams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a sunburn.
Over the next several days you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and you will notice improvement in your wrinkles, fine lines and scars. Your results will continue to evolve and improve during the weeks following your treatment, as new collagen forms and old skin is replaced by new, healthy skin. The production of new collagen will continue for as long as six months, and will ultimately result in a firmer, “plumper,” more refreshed appearance. The final results of your treatment will become apparent within 3 to 4 months of treatment and will persist for many years, as long as proper skin care routines are observed, including regular use of sunscreen and moisturizer.
