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!
