Hawaii Medical Skin Care offers the best solution for laser skin tightening – UltraPulse DeepFX. DeepFX fractional CO2 laser procedures are performed in a single treatment with minimal patient downtime. During the procedure, a high-energy beam of laser light is used to smooth out lines, wrinkles and scars, remove brown spots and other irregularities. This very fine beam of laser light is thinner than a human hair and the density of these laser beams is adjusted in order to control the degree of skin tightening.
How does DeepFX work?
The laser uses a beam of light smaller than a human hair to create tiny holes in your skin. The holes are placed using a computer scanner to control depth of treatment as well as the amount of tissue treated. Only a fraction of the skin is treated in any one treatment, leaving surrounding, untouched areas of the skin to expedite the regenerative process.
Where can DeepFX be applied?
DeepFX is commonly used to provide soft and smooth skin on the face, around the lips and eyes, on the upper chest, neck, hands and arms.
Is it safe?
DeepFX is safe for most people, however it should not be used if you have taken AccutaneTM in the past 12 months, have a history of keloid formulation, poor wound healing or demonstrate excessive or unusually prolonged erythema (i.e., redness of the skin resulting from inflammation), hyperpigmentation or hyperpigmentation upon laser test patching. Consult with our doctor if DeepFX is right for you.
How long does the procedure take?
The treatment takes approximately 20 minutes. However, an hour should be allotted as some physicians may apply an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort.
What is the healing process for DeepFX treatment?
Since only a small portion of skin is touched by the laser, healing time is typically about a week depending upon treatment protocol. Over the course of this time, patients should avoid direct exposure to sunlight and follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen. Patients can also expect some skin to flake.
How long does it take to see results?
Deep wrinkles, skin texture and scars are dramatically improved with just a single treatment with DeepFX. The skin may then continue to firm even months after the procedure.
