I use the Lumenis Active FX device and have been very satisfied with our results over the last several years. I have heard good reviews regarding the Fractora especially with skin tightening but I'm unaware of any good comparison study to prove the value of one over the other. My leaning would be toward the FX device since I do believe that it is a more aggressive and beneficial treatment for the skin surface.

ActiveFX versus Fractora for overall skin rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation with a laser, such as the Active FX, will clearly provide the best results and, in my opinion, is far superior than any RF treatment for skin rejuvenation, especially when the goals are improvement in brown spots, uneven skin tones, roughened texture, lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring.

I hope this helps.

I find that laser resurfacing is good in some cases but radiofrequency or non invasive lasers work better in others. both work best in combination with fillers, microneedling/PRP, subcision etc. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaulation. Best, Dr. Emer.
The truth is, there are many devices that are good for tightening and
rejuvenating the skin. You have done one
of the most important things by going to see an experienced cosmetic surgeon or
dermatologist who can evaluate your skin and offer recommendations. Make sure you see plenty of before and after
photos of actual patients treated by your physician with the device you are
considering. Based on your concerns, I
think the Active FX and Deep FX will offer exceptional benefits. In good health, Dr. Keel
