Fractional Laser Treatment in a Fraction of the Time
The latest advance in the treatment of aging skin is known as fractional laser, now available at Midwest Dermatology
Clinic with ActiveFX, DeepFX
TotalFX, a fractional treatment by the makers of the Ultrapulse laser.
sometimes referred to as bridge therapy, is performed in a single treatment with minimal downtime. Using
fractional laser technology, physicians deliver a pattern of thousands of tiny laser pulses, leaving surrounding
tissue intact to form bridges of healthy skin. This stimulates the growth of new collagen and leaves your skin
smoother, all with only one treatment and minimal healing time. Following ActiveFX treatment, you'll look and feel
With ActiveFX, you get two actions in one. As CO2 laser penetrates the outer layers of the skin, it eliminates
discoloration at the surface. The laser then takes aim at fine lines and wrinkles below the surface, penetrating heat
to smooth lines and wrinkles, and tighten loose and sagging skin. It also stimulates formation of new underlying
collagen, proteins that strengthen and connect the skin. As a result, the skin continues to firm and tighten, even
months after the procedure.
ActiveFX is used when skin shows moderate signs of aging and exposure to the elements and is effective in treating:
- Fine lines and moderate wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow's feet around the eyes
- Pucker marks and frown lines around the lips and mouth
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Superficial scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls
Smoother skin with more even tone, all in a single treatment, that's the "double-duty" power of ActiveFX.
Timing is Everything
What really makes ActiveFX stand apart from other resurfacing procedures is time - or the lack of time - involved
in the process. The office based treatment itself takes less than 30 minutes, and patients go home shortly afterwards.
Most patients are back to a normal lifestyle in as little as three to four days. To get you back to everyday life,
lotions and makeup can be applied after the fourth day. Most signs of treatment, including pinkness, are gone in about
While other fractional systems take up to five or six treatments, ActiveFX gets the job done in one single treatment.
Results you want, minimal down time and one trip to the doctors office - that's what you can expect with ActiveFX.
At Midwest Dermatology Clinic, your comfort is our concern. That's why we offer the Zimmer Laser Cooling system, or the
"Zimmer Chiller" to keep you relaxed and "cool" throughout the treatment. Unlike other cooling methods, the Zimmer
system cools the skin by blowing chilled air onto the skin's surface during and after the entire procedure. It minimizes
discomfort and reduces redness after the procedure. The Zimmer Chiller features six different air flow rates so patients
can receive the cooling intensity they prefer.
