ActiveFX and DeepFX

Lumenis Ultrapulse Fractional C02 Laser - ActiveFX and DeepFX


The Lumenis Ultrapulse CO2 laser is considered to be the gold-standard of CO2 lasers 

The Ultrapulse is the most powerful of all CO2 fractional lasers, and is therefore able to deliver high energy treatments safely.
We believe that the Ultrapulse CO2 laser gives unparalleled results for skin rejuvenation, particularly where more advanced sun-damage and ageing changes are present.

How does the Ultrapulse fractional C02 work?

The Ultrapulse delivers infrared light into either deep or superficial or combination fractional skin treatments The Ultrapulse CO2 laser is an ablative laser, meaning that small columns of skin are vaporised by the laser light. This occurs due to the heating of water within the skin.

ActiveFX ablates skin predominantly in the epidermis or superficial skin layers. This is beneficial for fine lines, pigmentation abnormalities and skin texture improvement.

DeepFX ablates columns of skin reaching into the dermis or deeper skin layer. This is beneficial for deeper lines and wrinkles and acne scarring or burns scarring.

What conditions can be treated?

  • lines and wrinkles on the face
  • wrinkles around the eyes
  • lines around the mouth
  • sun damage
  • improving skin texture
  • improving pore size
  • acne scars
  • surgical scars
  • burns scars
  • poikiloderma of Civatte (sun damage on the chest)

What is the healing time?

In most treatments, healing time (downtime) is between 7 - 14 days. Some areas may be slower, such as the chest, hands or arms.
