Ablate (burn off) damaged and old skin to stimulate production of new, fresh skin. During the Active Fx fractional CO2 Laser procedure, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated, which leaves small areas of untouched skin. The fractional technique helps reduce the healing time.

Most people can expect 1 to 1 ½ weeks of complete down time to allow the skin to heal enough for makeup to cover up the new skin’s redness. The redness of the new skin will fade over the course of the next few weeks. It is important to understand that the healing process after your Active FX fractional CO2 laser treatment takes approximately three (3) months to complete. Blotchy redness, which can usually be covered with makeup, is common and often takes up to eight (8) weeks to completely dissipate.
At three months, the results of your Active FX fractional CO2 laser treatment are dramatic. With proper skin care and sun protection, the results can last for many years. Even better, most people continue to experience ongoing gradual improvement for up to six months.
