What is the recommended waiting time between DeepFX treatments and the rationale behind? Thanks.

Wait Time Between Deep FX Treatments

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.
