Active FX is a fractionated CO2 laser that works best to improve skin texture: wrinkles, lines, and scarring. It may also improve some pigment abnormalities. Broken blood vessels, from sun damage or rosacea, often respond well to intense pulsed light treatments, and lasers specific for vessels, such as the iridex laser. Usually a series of treatments a few weeks apart are required to treat blood vessels.
ActiveFX is best suited for improvement of sun damamge, rough skin texture and irregular skin tone. Best treatment for prominent facial capillaries are IPL, Nd:YAG or pulse dye laser, depending on the amount of vessels and your skin type.
