Lumenis Active FX treatments at Beer Dermatology in West Palm Beach, FL and Jupiter , FL


The Lumenis fractional CO2 laser creates microscopic channels that trigger the process of new collagen and elastic fibers production, while leaving some unaffected skin in between the channels to reduce healing time. With ActiveFX treatment, a high-energy beam of laser light interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. The result is deep dermal regeneration that may dramatically improves your skin elasticity and appearance with just one treatment.



ActiveFX produces a dramatic effect on the skin:

  • Causes immediate collagen contraction
  • Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
  • Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin

Radiesse Hands

K.B – Beer Dermatology
Cosmetic, General & Surgical Dermatology

So what I am doing here is using a long cannula to get all the way under her skin, and go up to the proximal knuckle and you can see it just gently flows through what we are using is Radiesse, it is just a perfect product because it is a little bit opaque, it is white because of the calcium and what I like to do is, spread it around using the cannula and then I will use a little bit of pressure with my finger and what that does is it spreads it homogenously and provides really wonderful coverage. Very, very minimal trauma even though the skin here is incredibly thin, and you can see off her vessels and everything else, but what happens is you lay the Radiesse down on top of it, just like that, you can spread it out and it camouflages the vessels, the tendons and everything else.
You can see it is a pretty easy procedure to do, the way I do it is I make 4 small incision points at 12 3 6 and 9 with 12 being her right third knuckle, and what we will do is just gently fill into her digital space with a little bit of Radiesse and you can see it just really gently flows, we are using a soft fill cannula at this point which has several exit ports and what I am doing is just filling a little bit at a time, and you can see as we fill that spot there – we are gently going to coax it over, and so we are just going to use a little bit of pressure and spread out the material so it is evenly distributed and then a lot of times what I like to do is take a semi ablative laser and just tighten the skin up and it looks beautiful when you are done so that is it.
