Deep FX Fractional Resurfacing in Birmingham, Alabama

Deep FX is a CO2 laser resurfacing procedure that penetrates the layer of skin containing collagen and elastin (the dermis). This layer is also where wrinkles develop.  By piercing this level of the skin, the laser is able to repair deep wrinkles and lines, as well as treat acne scars and scars caused by surgery or trauma.

Performed in an office, deep FX can take up to 90 minutes to complete. Because the dermis is being treated, and this is the layer that contains pain and touch receptors, the patient may experience a sensation similar to sunburn. For this, an oral sedative or topical anesthetics will be placed on the skin to help the patient deal with discomfort caused by the procedure. Aftercare instructions will be given to the patient and he or she will be scheduled for a follow-up appointment so that the skin can be assessed.

Overall, deep FX is intended to improve the skin in the following ways: ·

  • Tighten and lift eyelid skin ·         
  • Smooth and tighten facial skin
  • Smooth and tighten facial skin
  • Smooth and tighten facial skin
  • Soften vertical lip lines and smokers’ lines

Depending on the condition of your skin, several sessions may be necessary to achieve the patient’s desired results. Deep FX is effective on its own, but may be used with other cosmetic procedures.
