What is the ActiveFX laser?
The ActiveFX laser is a gentle way to achieve healthy, rejuvenated skin. During the treatment, a
high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface, causing the upper layer to peel off and
regenerate a layer of new, undamaged skin. It’s associated with an extremely quick recovery period, because
of the way the procedure is administered. The beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small bridges
of healthy, untouched tissue. This technique leads to a substantially more efficient healing process, as the
healthy tissue helps to regenerate the damaged skin more quickly.
Benefits of the ActiveFX laser
Unlike other laser resurfacing procedures, the ActiveFX laser is associated with a swift recovery period of
approximately three to five days.
In many cases, a single treatment is all that’s necessary to see a dramatic improvement in the appearance
of fine lines and wrinkles and superficial skin imperfections.
The results of the ActiveFX laser are extremely long-lasting. As long as you follow a proper skincare
regime moving forward, you can expect your smooth and youthful new look to endure for years.
Cosmetic issues addressed with the ActiveFX laser
At our Los Angeles medical spa, we routinely use the ActiveFX laser to treat the following skin imperfections:
- Brown and red age spots
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Sun damage
- Large pores
What to expect during the procedure
To begin your ActiveFX procedure, we will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout
the entire treatment. From there, you will be given protective eyewear to guard your eyes from the light of
the laser. We will then apply the ActiveFX laser to the treatment area, removing damaged skin cells and
promoting the growth of new collagen beneath the surface. You can expect the entire procedure to last
approximately twenty minutes, though the exact length will depend on the size of the area being treated.
Before & After
Please view our beautiful before and after gallery to see for yourself the smooth and clear results you can expect to achieve from among the best activefx treatment Manhattan Beach has available at Marcus Medical Spa.
A primary reason why the ActiveFX laser is so popular is because it’s associated with a very minimal
recovery period. Immediately after the procedure, it’s normal to experience some discomfort, and the
treatment area will likely appear dry and pink. However, within three to five days the damaged top layer
will flake off and you’ll be left with smooth and youthful skin.
