DeepFX™ -- Lumenis UltraPulse Encore CO2™

What is DeepFX? 
DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin.  The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2 laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. And because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the laser, healing time can be limited to just a few days.

DeepFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:

  • Improves wrinkles, scars and folds 
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin

Benefits of DeepFX 

  • Results in a single treatment
  • Minimal downtime
  • Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
  • Deep dermal stimulation
  • Dramatic results

How does DeepFX work?
DeepFX procedures involve treating only a fraction of the skin’s surface, leaving bridges of untouched skin to aid in the regeneration process. Each laser pulse removes a narrow column of tissue while simultaneously treating surrounding skin. This deep heating causes immediate collagen contraction and long-term collagen remodeling. The result is softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, and improved skin texture.

A high-energy laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern over the surface of the treatment area, leaving areas of untouched skin to promote quicker healing.

DeepFX is typically performed in a physician’s office and lasts for about 20 minutes. Your doctor may use an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort.

Where can DeepFX be used?
DeepFX is commonly used on the face, around the lips, for crows feet, the neck, upper chest, hands and arms. Ask your doctor if DeepFX is right for you.

Who can get a DeepFX treatment?
DeepFX is safe for most people; however it shouldn't be used if you have taken Accutane™ in the past 12 months, have a history of keloid formation, have a history of poor wound healing, or demonstrate excessive or unusually prolonged erythema, hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation upon laser test patching.
