DeepFX laser resurfacing is a new type of fractional laser technology which is ideal for the treatment of aged, scarred, or sun-damaged skin. The procedure relies on the efficacy and precision of fractional CO2 laser micro-beams to specifically target the deep layers of the skin, encouraging healing responses that stimulate the production of new skin and collagen throughout the treatment area. The fractional technique causes controlled damage to specific areas of the treatment zone, leaving other areas untouched. This results in a much faster healing time, with reduced recovery time and less discomfort during the healing process.
What are the benefits of Deep FX laser resurfacing?
Deep FX laser resurfacing offers men and women multiple advantages over other laser resurfacing procedures, including:
· Single treatment results
· Reduced recovery time
· Reduction or elimination of scarring, wrinkles, and lines
· Improvement in overall tone and texture of the skin
· Continued production of new, healthy collagen
· Precision-driven treatment
· Ability to tailor custom treatment for each individual patient’s needs
Is the Deep FX laser resurfacing technique an invasive procedure?
The Deep FX laser resurfacing procedure is considered a minimally invasive procedure, focusing the laser energy on the deeper tissues of the skin and causing minor damage to the surface of the skin.
What results can you expect from Deep FX laser resurfacing?
Immediately following treatment with the DeepFX laser resurfacing procedure, you may notice some redness which will resolve soon after treatment. Initial results will be immediately apparent, reflected by an apparent softening of fine lines and wrinkles and a reduction in the appearance of scarring and discoloration.
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.
Should I get Deep FX laser resurfacing treatment in conjunction with other laser resurfacing techniques?
Deep FX laser resurfacing is often performed in conjunction with other laser resurfacing techniques, most notably the Active FX and Pigment FX laser resurfacing treatments, to achieve a more overall “lifted” appearance. All of the FX resurfacing treatments are developed by the same company and designed to work in conjunction with each other to achieve more complete and total effects for both men and women who want to achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated, and refreshed appearance.
It can also be combined with Botox or dermal filler procedures. Deep FX can be used singly or in combination to achieve remarkable effects on the face, neck, chest, hands and arms.
What type of after care is needed to sustain the results?
Following your treatment with the Deep FX laser resurfacing system, you should follow some simple steps to preserve your results and protect newly treated skin, including:
· Regular use of moisturizer
· Regular use of sunscreen
· Avoiding prolonged direct exposure to the sun
· Adherence to a regular skin care routine, as described by your specialist
What is the cost of Deep FX laser resurfacing?
The cost of your Deep FX laser resurfacing procedure will vary based on the size of the treatment area and on your location. In general, you can expect your costs to range from $2,000 to $4,000.
