Total FX is the latest, most technologically advanced laser for skin resurfacing available today. This treatment combines two state-of-the-art skin care treatment modalities — Active and Deep FX — into one to create the best results possible.

What makes this CO2 laser treatment different from the previous generations is the way the laser pulse is delivered using fractionated technology. During the treatment, only micro zones or fractions of the skin are treated, leaving healthy skin behind to aid in the healing process. By using this technology, the risk for side effects such as infection and skin discoloration are greatly reduced. For this skin care treatment, our dermatology specialists will typically customize the treatment to fit your needs.

What are the benefits of Total FX?

  • Minimizes the appearance of deep wrinkles
  • Improves acne scarring over time
  • Eliminates discoloration caused by sun damage
  • Remodels collagen
  • Great for treating skin laxity and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
  • Softer, smoother skin in the treatment area

What can I expect during and after Total FX?

  • Swelling and redness lasts 2 to 3 days
  • Peeling and crusting begins 3 days after treatment and lasts for 1 week
  • Redness can lasts a few days to weeks after the peeling stops but can be easily covered with make-up
