Active FX is a CO2 laser device by Lumenis. It is capable of a wide range of treatment parameters and the rate of side effects and complications, as well as the down time to full recovery, varies with the technique used. Your skin type is a critical factor. People with lighter skin can tolerate more intense treatment with less chance of negative side effects. Although scarring and infection are always possibilities, these are quite rare when administered by experienced personnel.
