Laser skin resurfacing is an FDA-approved treatment for:
It works by safely penetrating deep into the skin, breaking down uneven pigmentation and redness and stimulating the production of collagen to give skin a tighter, more youthful appearance.
The best candidate for laser skin resurfacing with ActiveFX is someone with a light skin tone and no active acne. We can help you determine whether you’re a good fit for treatment during your consultation.
At SkinSpirit, we offer several solutions for CO2 laser resurfacing. Each treatment includes a computer-controlled laser peel of the dermal layers that improves skin tone, fine lines, crepiness, uneven pigmentation, and surface imperfections by triggering a natural healing response and collagen renewal.

Skin resurfacing with heavier settings is a tried-and-true approach to skin rejuvenation. By precisely removing layers of skin, the process corrects fine lines and wrinkles, smooths skin and acne scars, softens pucker marks, and repairs skin discoloration.
The results of CO2 laser resurfacing, or ActiveFX resurfacing, are generally quite dramatic and long-lasting.
ResurFX – A non ablative solution to smoothing wrinkles, skin tightening, and acne scarring, ResurFX is offered in both California and Washington locations. Several treatments are required to achieve results but recovery time is short as is the treatment time itself.
Fraxel – Like Active FX solutions discussed above, Fraxel goes deeper to provide more dramatic results than ResurFX, with a slightly longer recovery time. It is used primarily to correct skin discoloration issues and is offered only in some California clinics.
