Deep FX - Fractional CO2 Laser

A carbon dioxide laser delivers accurate removal of minute, deep columns of skin with the highest degree of skin tightening available today. Fractionating this proven technique drastically reduces downtime compared to the traditional method as the skin surface is barely altered.

Expected results:

Skin tightening, elimination or softening of wrinkles, treatment of acne scars.

Post treatment instructions:

Rigorous sun avoidance/protection for 3 months, refrain from alcohol consumption for 2 weeks after the treatment, avoid aspirin for 10 days, continue vitamin C 1000 mg daily for 3 months. Skin care in the immediate postoperative period includes the use of a very gentle non-soap cleanser, petrolatum until skin renewal sets in (1-2 days), oral medications to prevent herpes reactivation and bacterial super infection.
