What Is Lumenis Deep FX? San Diego laser treatment

The Lumenis Deep FX is a micro-ablative laser procedure that works to provide smoother and clearer skin to patients with wrinkles, scars, and sun damage. Lumenis Deep FX works deep beneath the skin’s surface to rejuvenate the skin. This treatment is ideal for patients with deep wrinkles and unwanted scars from injury or acne because it promotes our body’s own collagen growth in order to revitalize the skin. Like other fractional resurfacing laser treatments, it specifically targets only a portion of the skin so that the surrounding tissue is not damaged. Our board-certified San Diego dermatologists are experts at using Lumenis Deep FX to give patients a smooth and healthy look.

Why use Lumenis Deep FX?

As we get older, our skin starts to show signs of aging such as wrinkles and skin discoloration. Many people also live with unsightly acne scars or scars from an injury. These skin imperfections can cause embarrassment and dissatisfaction with our appearance. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we believe that our innovative skin resurfacing laser treatments are the best ways to correct multiple skin conditions and problem areas.

For patients with deep set wrinkles or scars, the Lumenis Deep FX laser system provides the deep penetration required to stimulate collagen growth and produce smooth, clear skin. Lumenis Deep FX is especially beneficial for patients who want to eliminate scars. The Lumenis Deep FX laser treatment works to break up the scar tissue and promote skin rejuvenation for a healthy and glowing appearance. Our laser experts meet with each patient to determine which treatment plan is the best to meet their individual needs.
