The reality is that it doesn’t matter how old you are or what your lifestyle might be, or even what life events you may have experienced. Chances are that your facial skin is not at a level you would like it to be.
Whether it be wrinkles, fine lines, scars (including those unsightly acne scars), age spots, or sun damage, these facial blemishes can make you feel self-conscious, embarrassed, and frustrated. And while you may be able to cover these skin issues with makeup, clothing, or accessories, the truth is that these problems remain when you look at yourself in the mirror. However, the good news is that there are numerous non-surgical cosmetic options to help you revitalize your facial skin, and two of the most effective are ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™. This blog will explore these two treatments to help you better understand how they are performed and if they may be able to help you.
Both ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ are essentially the same treatment, with the exception that DeepFX™ treats issues at a deeper level in the skin. ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ use CO2 fractional lasers to actively and aggressively treat skin concerns on the face.
The ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ laser energy works by promoting the production of collagen. This is important because collagen is a natural protein that is responsible for the strength and health of our skin. So, as more collagen is being produced, we will see a marked improvement to our skin quality. Essentially, laser treatments, such as ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ jumpstart the body into healing itself.
The ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ treatment can be completed in as little as one hour. For your treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin. Then, your skincare professional uses the handpiece to treat the target area. The laser energy penetrates deep into the skin to heat up the tissue and increase the amount of collagen in the skin. While you may experience some redness and slight irritation, one of the best aspects of this treatment is that there is no required downtime, which means that you can return to your normal daily activities (including work) immediately after your session is finished.
Whether your frustrations are age related or lifestyle related, ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ can help you achieve smoother and softer facial skin. However, your results will not be limited to your physical appearance. Instead, you will be able to feel more comfortable and confident with the way you look. No longer will you feel self-conscious about your facial aesthetic in social situations. After your treatment, you can smile and laugh, knowing that you look amazing.
You may read this information and think that ActiveFX™ or DeepFX™ would be perfect for you; however, the next step in achieving a clearer complexion is to schedule a consultation. At your consultation, you will be able to discuss your aesthetic concerns, and your skincare professional will have the chance to examine your condition to determine if these treatments will help you achieve the results you desire.
