What is DeepFX?

DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.

How does DeepFX work?

DeepFX procedures involve treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process. The result is softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, and improved skin texture.

What is a DeepFX treatment like?

Your physician will perform the procedure in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 30-40 minutes before the DeepFX procedure begins. As the microbeams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similiar in appearance to a deep sunburn. Over the next several days, you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and you will notice improvement in your wrinkles, fine lines and scars. Call us today for a consultation to see if DeepFX is right for you!

COVID-19 NOTICE

Due to Covid-19, non-essential skin condition appointments will be rescheduled and our offices will be closed until further notice. Our phone lines are still open to receive incoming calls for urgent matters and refills. Please keep in mind that refills will be answered within 24-48 hours from initial call.

We are also offering TeleMedicine as an alternative for those patients who want to keep in touch but do not require in-person care. Most insurances will be honored as usual. TeleMedicine appointments are digital visits, performed from the comfort of your home using your cell phone, tablet or camera-enabled computer. You will be able to speak with and see your provider in real-time. The provider will ask you to use your camera to show them the rash, spot, or condition you are concerned about, and will proceed to counsel you and prescribe medications as applicable, just like an in-office visit.

If you wish to schedule a TeleMedicine or in-office appointment, please call your preferred location.

Finally, take care of yourselves and take care of those within your community.
Please remember that all those working to provide “essential” services are working tirelessly, doing their very best to support you.
