Using the latest CO2 technology from the Lumenis device, Dr. Day and her team are experts in reliably delivering results that astound patients. This amazing laser technology can be harnessed through several different treatment protocols, the ActiveFx, DeepFx, and a combination of the two, the TotalFx.

What To Expect
How it works
Enables the deepest penetration with the lowest energy- reducing patient discomfort, downtime and thermal damage.
The energy is delivered through a narrow range of wavelengths, and in the target area, the energy causes temperature elevation which results in tissue evaporation or ablation. Ablative lasers effectively treat a broad range of skin conditions by removing all or part of the skin. The body’s natural healing processes then replace the damaged skin with new and healthy tissue. Although several types of ablative lasers exist, differing mainly by wavelength, CO2 lasers have long been considered the industry’s ‘Gold Standard’ for ablation, delivering an exceptional ratio between ablation and coagulation (heating tissue without evaporating it).
How we do it
Dr. Day loves combining the two systems, Active FX and Deep FX, and recommends TotalFX for the majority of patients interested in resurfacing.
Patients can expect 7-10 days of downtime due to redness, mild swelling, dryness, and flaking. Dr. Day recommends using her soothing post-procedure skin care, which consists of clinically proven restorative nectars, creams, and serums for optimal healing. Makeup can often be worn 2 days after treatment.
