Active FX (Fractionated CO2 laser)

skin rejuvenation before and after

A carbon dioxide laser delivers accurate removal of skin layers and the highest degree of skin tightening available today. Fractionating this proven technique drastically reduces downtime compared to the traditional method as skin regenerates quicker from tiny islands of remaining epidermis.
