What is ActiveFX?

What is ActiveFX?

Many people in Phoenix enjoy spending time in our community’s bright, frequent sunshine. However, prolonged exposure to the sun can cause wrinkles, sun spots, brown blotches and other unsightly blemishes. Fortunately, our board-certified plastic surgeons can use ActiveFX, a laser skin resurfacing treatment, to eliminate these blemishes.

ActiveFX is just one of many skin procedures our Phoenix plastic surgeons offers. But it is a proven, effective way of rejuvenating the skin on your face and eliminating the signs of age and wear brought on by sun exposure.

The ActiveFX treatment uses a safe medical laser to effectively peel off the upper layer of skin in the treatment area. This brings up a new, healthy layer of skin and stimulates the growth of healing collagen reserves. The laser is applied in a way that leaves “bridges” of healthy skin surrounding the treatment area, which eases recovery.

The results of an ActiveFX treatment are often remarkable. With one, 30 to 45 minute treatment from our Phoenix plastic surgeons, you can eliminate all of the skin imperfections listed above. And the changes are long-term: the effects have been known to last for up to a year.
