Active FX is a carbon dioxide laser that directs a laser beam at the skin. This causes the outer layer of the skin to peel off so the body can regenerate a new layer. The regenerated skin is toned, firmer and more youthful in appearance. This treatment reduces the appearance of discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles. It also stimulates the production of collagen. Active FX laser applies the laser beam in a specific pattern over the treated area to produce the desired results.
