Ideal for patients in their 60s, or those with deep scarring, this comprehensive treatment provides the most dramatic improvements in tone, texture and tightening. The procedure is performed using a unique combination of DeepFX for wrinkles, acne scars and rebuilding collagen followed by the ActiveFX for the superficial layers of the skin to remove unwanted pigment, smooth the skin and restore a youthful luster to the skin tone. This treatment is great for darker complexions under the strict supervision of an experienced board-certified dermatologist.
Oral medications and topical anesthetics are administered to alleviate any discomfort associated with the procedure. This treatment process can be done in less than an hour. We will use an anesthetic cream prior to treatment to aid with comfort. As the micro beams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to sunburn.
Following a TotalFX treatment, you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and you will notice improvement in your wrinkles, fine lines and scars. Your results will continue to evolve and improve during the weeks following your treatment, as new collagen forms and old skin is replaced by new, healthy skin. The production of new collagen will continue for as long as 6 months, and will ultimately result in a firmer, “plumper,” more refreshed appearance. The final results of your treatment will become apparent within 3-4 months of treatment and will persist for many years, as long as proper skin care routines are observed, including regular use of sunscreen and moisturizer.
