Do you want to eliminate wrinkles, improve skin laxity, decrease sun damage, smooth surface irregularities and decrease age spots in a single treatment? You can improve all of these elements with Active FX, Deep FX, and Total FX (a CO 2 laser by Lumenis) by Dr. Young, the renowned Bellevue / Seattle laser skin resurfacing specialist. Read more about CO2 laser resurfacing through our links below. Active FX concentrates on superficial wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation. DeepFX, in particular, targets the deep dermal layers of the skin, and provides exceptional results on deep wrinkles, scars, and lip lines. Total FX combines both Active FX and Deep FX for maximum results. CO 2 laser resurfacing penetrates into the dermis and stimulates collagen production and additional improvement can continue for months after the treatment. With proper care to avoid the harmful effects of sunlight, the improvement can last for years. Note: for your procedure we will likely want you to start some topical medications that you will start 2-4 weeks before your co2 laser procedure. These same topicals should be stopped 7 days before your procedure to allow your skin to recuperate. Make sure to read all the links to the right to prepare for your procedure. You can learn more about Laser Resurfacing with these links below:
