Laser Resurfacing Recovery and Transformation
The epidermis (outer layer of skin) sloughs off and the new epidermis is smoother, tighter, and more even in skin tone. The dermis (deeper layer of skin) produces more collagen leading to thicker, stronger, and firmer skin support. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.
The Active FXTM treatment typically lasts less than 10 minutes. However, an hour should be allotted to permit time for pre-treatment pictures, anesthetic cream application, and review of post-procedure instructions.
Patients experience warmth, similar to sunburn after treatment. During this time, a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen is recommended. Skin will then flake off within two days. After four to seven days, make-up can typically be applied. Pinkness is often gone after about a week.
