Laser Skin Resurfacing in Panama City

The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. Techniques for skin resurfacing have made enormous advances, allowing practically everyone to achieve nearly flawless complexions. Many systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing. The primary targets of laser skin resurfacing include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks, and forehead
  • Loose eyelid skin
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Pucker marks (smoker’s lines) and frown lines
  • Brown spots and blotchy, uneven skin tone
  • Scars, especially acne scars
  • Loose skin around the neck and jowls

How it Works

UltraPulse® CO2 laser

The gold standard of laser resurfacing systems, the UltraPulse® CO2 laser, delivers thousands of tiny laser pulses in a pattern over the skin. Each pulse heats a column of tissue, eliminating pigment discoloration at the surface and creating a zone of heating deep in the tissue. Unique to the UltraPulse Encore, these zones of heating shrink collagen immediately.* The CO2 laser also offers the benefits of heating deeper layers of skin tissue, thereby stimulating collagen and further remodeling the skin. Patients can select from a range of treatments depending on their skin and lifestyle needs.

 

What is ActiveFX “fractional” laser resurfacing?

ActiveFX is a fractional laser procedure performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth lines, wrinkles, and scars, and to remove brown spots and other irregularities. It also stimulates formation of new underlying collagen for continued improvement over time. With fractional laser treatment, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique speeds the healing process, making it possible to return to normal activities sooner.

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.

Is ActiveFX or DeepFX right for you?

ActiveFX or DeepFX is ideal for you if you:

  • Have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
  • Want noticeable results with minimal downtime
  • Want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity*
  • Want to reduce the appearance of scars, deep lines, and folds

What you can expect from ActiveFX or DeepFX

Most physicians perform the procedure in the office with a topical anesthetic cream that is applied 30-40 minutes before the ActiveFX or DeepFX procedure begins. There is little to no pain associated with the procedure – most patients say they feel warmth similar to sunburn. You can drive yourself home after the procedure. With a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen, your photodamaged skin will begin to flake off within 2 days. After about 3-5 days, your doctor will probably let you wear make-up. Pinkness should be gone in about a week.

  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin

The results of ActiveFX of DeepFX laser treatment are long-term and, with proper sun protection, can persist for many years. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-5 months after the procedure.
