Commonly Asked Questions

About the SCMS ActiveFX Treatment

How effective is this technology?

CO2 laser skin resurfacing has been considered the gold standard over erbium resurfacing. CO2 emits significantly more heat into the dermis resulting in collagen stimulation. With proper care to avoid the harmful effects of the environment, these phenomenal results can last for years.

How long is the healing process?

The Active FX uses the advanced fractional resurfacing technology which leaves small bridges of untouched skin to speed the healing process. As a result, down time is usually only 3 to 5 days.

How does this technology compare to fraxel and erbium resurfacing?

Compared to other technologies...
**According to the American Society for Laser Medicare and Surgery. 1 Active FX Treatment = 4 Fraxel or 4 Erbium Treatments.
