TOTAL FX FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES THE TOTAL FX LASER WORK?
Years ago, laser resurfacing meant weeks of downtime and months of redness. With recent advances in laser technology, fractional resurfacing has emerged as one of the most exciting developments in cosmetic medicine. With fractional treatments, only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small bridges of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing time much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN THE TOTAL FX TREAT?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crows feet around the eyes
- Frown lines and lines around the mouth (pucker’s lines)
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Acne Scars
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Plan on being at the office for about an hour. Our trained nurses will take pictures and apply a topical numbing for about 20 minutes. The procedure will take about 20 minutes.
DOES TOTAL FX HURT?
The TOTALFX has some discomfort during the procedure. Afterwards, your skin will feel hot like a sunburn and will last for 2-3 hours. It should not hurt after the treatment.
IS TOTAL FX SAFE?
TOTAL FX is a safe treatment in the hands of an experienced professional. We recommend avoiding any laser treatment for at least 2 weeks before going into the sun and at least 2 weeks after having been in the sun.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You should see results within 3-4 weeks after the treatment. You will need anywhere from 1- multiple treatments depending on what we are treating.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
You will start with a skin care consultation to determine what treatment is right for you. The ActiveFX is more superficial and is an ideal treatment for fine lines, texture, and pigment. The DeepFX goes deeper to treat deeper lines and scars. By combining these two, you get the TotalFX package. We can, therefore, customize treatments to target specific areas of concern and tailor it to fit within your lifestyle.
WILL I NEED MULTIPLE TREATMENTS?
Most people achieve significant results with just one treatment. You will notice immediate skin tightening, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and a noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture within one week of your treatment. Over the next 6 months you will continue to tighten as collagen is remodeled under your skin. People with severe acne scarring may need more than one treatment depending on the depth of their scars.
