If you’re looking for ways to rejuvenate your skin for a healthy, youthful glow, then lasers remain one of your best options. ActiveFX™ is a non-surgical skin treatment that can improve many different skin concerns with a single treatment.
ActiveFX is a CO2 laser that can penetrate the deep layers of the skin to repair signs of aging and stimulate collagen production. It’s also a fractional technology, meaning it treats only a fraction of the skin for quicker recovery and more effective collagen rejuvenation. It can be performed on many different areas of the face and body, including:
- Upper chest
It’s an excellent option for patients who want to improve signs of aging, uneven skin tone, and texture with a single treatment.
ActiveFX is an effective way to transform your skin without surgery or downtime. However, certain skin conditions like a history of excessive scarring or keloid formation can mean ActiveFX might not be a good fit. Additionally, if you use certain skincare products like retinoids, you may need to stop using them. During your consultation with Dr. Trupiano and our team, we’ll determine whether ActiveFX is right for you.
To begin, you’ll meet with our team and discuss the right treatment for your goals. Then, your skin will be cleansed and prepared. ActiveFX is performed using a topical anesthetic for your comfort. When you’re ready, the handpiece is applied to the skin where it administers CO2 energy. Once complete, your skin will be soothed and made ready for the rest of your day, and you can return home.
You’ll be given a list of detailed aftercare instructions by our team, including when you can resume your normal skincare regimen and wear makeup. It’s normal to have some redness and sensitivity (similar to a sunburn) after your treatment, but this subsides within a few days. It’s extremely important to wear sunscreen and protect yourself from sun exposure since your skin will be photosensitive. You’ll begin to see results within a few days, but it can take up to one year for your final results to emerge as your skin produces new collagen.
ActiveFX can transform your skin for a younger, brighter look. To learn more about your skin rejuvenation options, contact our Troy, MI office for a consultation by calling or filling out our online contact form.
I’ve had Dr. Trupiano do my Botox and filler for years – he always does a great job. I have recommended him to several of my friends and they are all as happy with his work as I am. Dr. Trupiano is conscientious and meticulous. I highly recommend him!!
