Because collagen remodeling occurs for several months after Deep FX, we usually recommend waiting 4-6 months between treatments for severely wrinkled skin. With hypertrophic or keloidal scarring, treatments can be done at 4-8 week intervals.

Waiting time between DeepFX or ActiveFX treatments

The wait time between repeat ActiveFX or DeepFX if needed is usually 6 months. Patients will continue to experience remodeling of their skin for 3-6 months after their treatments so patients should wait to see where they are at the 6 month point prior to deciding on whether a second treatment is needed.

I hope you find my answer helpful.
