Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser Treatment Information

Dr. Knight and his staff are very excited to add the Lumenis UltraPulse® FX™ fractionated CO2 laser to the Orlando, Florida practice.

The CO2 Laser has long been considered the “gold standard” device for laser skin resurfacing of the skin in an effort to correct wrinkles, laxity, scars, and pigment problems. Although effective in the right hands, the lengthy downtime and somewhat narrow safety window associated with this procedure limited this laser’s widespread use….until now.

How Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser works

Rather than affecting the entire skin, the Lumenis UltraPulse® CO2 laser ablates only a fraction of the skin surface, allowing bridges of non-affected tissue to stimulate rapid healing. This new approach to fractional laser skin resurfacing is more comprehensive, and considerably more effective, than previous fractional systems utilizing other laser systems (i.e. Fraxel re:fine/re:store™, Palomar StarLux®).

Are there any Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser Side Effects?

In dozens of controlled clinical trials with the Lumenis FX™ CO2, the incidence of unwanted side effects was extremely rare. To date, the two most feared complications of traditional CO2 laser resurfacing, depigmentation of the skin (white spots) and scars, have not been reported in any patient.

However, patients who are treated with the Lumenis FX™ are overjoyed with the laser’s effectiveness. Several clinical trials have shown its superiority in the treatment of coarse and fine wrinkles, skin laxity, dyschromia and sun spots, rhytids, and overall skin aging. Simply put, there is no procedure on the market, either laser or surgical, that can deliver the results of fractional CO2 resurfacing with the Lumenis FX™.

Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser treatment levels

Treatment can be tailored to each patients needs, with regard to both clinical indication and severity. Dr. Knight can adapt your treatment to your specific problem and tolerance of downtime.

  • Deeper wrinkles and scars require treatment with the DeepFX™ protocol; the fractional CO2 laser penetrates to deep dermal collagen but there is a higher percentage of untreated skin, enabling fast healing.
  • The ActiveFX™ protocol treats sun spots, dyschromias, and light winkles; a larger spot size but limited skin penetration also promotes rapid healing.

Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser Results

Results are both instant and long-term. Only one treatment is required. Each pulse with the laser removes a column of tissue, eliminating pigment problems and causing skin tightening. Deep skin heating further promotes collagen contracture and long-term new collagen formation. In addition, the Lumenis FX™ can treat areas off the face, such as the hands, neck, and chest.

What to expect after Lumenis FX™ Fractional CO2 Laser treament

Downtime ranges from two to five days, depending on treatment protocol. In all cases, most of the superficial skin peeling is resolved by five days, leaving only a light pinkness. Over the next six months, there is a progressive skin tightening, helping to correct fine and deep wrinkles, scars, and laxity.
