Co2 Fractionalised Laser Skin Resurfacing (FLSR)
Laser resurfacing may be used to improve the appearance of or remove:
Superficial scars caused by acne, surgery, or trauma that are not growing or that are getting thicker.
Colour (pigment) changes or defects in the skin, such as liver spots (lentigines), port-wine stains, or café-au-lait spots.
ActiveFX is the latest advance worldwide in the treatment of aging skin. In essence; it is possibly the most advanced fractional laser procedure presently available in the world today and it can be performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime of about 4 to 5 days.
People with lighter skin who do not get a lot of sun exposure after the procedure tend to have the best results. People with darker skin may benefit from laser resurfacing, but their skin may not heal as well.
