What is CellFx?

CellFX® is a technology that treats lesions using Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (a very fast electrical pulse) and microneedles. It targets the lesion without affecting the skin around it, making it a safe and effective way to remove lesions versus traditional freezing or extraction. Because it targets only the cells that make up the lesion, it significantly reduces the risk of affecting the collagen foundation of the skin and causing scarring or unnecessary damage. Once the treated cells die off, new skin regenerates for a completely natural and healthy appearance.

What is a Skin Lesion?

The medical term for an irregular-looking spot or area on the skin is a lesion. Typically, lesions are composed of cells and are caused by malformations in the skin’s structure – they can sometimes extend underneath the surface layer of the skin to the dermis, or the middle layer of the skin. They can come in many forms, appearing as spots, bumps, or growths. They may be raised or flat against the surface, and they can have a pigmented or non-pigmented appearance. Finally, they can appear anywhere on the face or body. There are a variety of causes of skin lesions, some of them related to aging. Lesions are not typically medically concerning, but they may interfere with your cosmetic goals.

What Can CellFX® Treat?

CellFX® is a new option for benign skin lesions like warts, enlarged sebaceous glands, pimples, moles, and more. It can also be used on seborrheic keratoses and basal cell skin cancers. It can be an excellent option for patients who have tried other lesion treatments without success or who experienced regrowth.  

CellFX®® Procedure

Treatments are very quick and easy, able to be completed within 30-60 minutes. To begin, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the area to keep you comfortable during treatment. Then, the handpiece will be applied to the lesion. The tiny microneedles are inserted into the lesion and the very fast laser pulses are emitted over the course of 10-15 seconds. You may feel some pressure, twitching, or stinging, but the treatment is not painful.

CellFX® Results

After treatment, it’s normal to have some slight swelling and redness. Although you may return to normal activities right away, it’s recommended to keep the treated area covered with a product like Aquaphor and a Band-Aid. As the treated area heals, you may experience some scabbing and crusting – it’s important not to pick or exfoliate the scabs – instead, let them heal on their own. Over time, the lesion will begin to flake off, leaving clear and healthy skin.

CellFX® can produce results with a single treatment, although you may need more than one treatment to completely address stubborn lesions. Within 30-60 days of treatment, your lesion will clear – by 60-90 days, your treated skin will look normal and blemish-free.

How the technology works

Did you know that your unwanted skin spots and bumps (benign lesions) are made up of cells? Which is why the CellFX® procedure is the ideal choice. This unique procedure uses patented Nano-Pulse Stimulation™ (NPS™) technology to apply ultrafast energy pulses to reach skin lesions within the treatment area. Because NPS technology affects cells and only cells, it doesn’t harm the healthy, non-cellular collagen foundation that surrounds the lesion. So new cells regenerate and renew, for a natural, healthy appearance.
