What Is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?
How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
What is TotalFX?
TotalFX is a revolutionary fractional treatment that combines DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™ procedures for total solutions in one treatment with minimal downtime. Fractional treatments treat only a fraction of the skin using a fraxel laser, leaving bridges of untouched skin that aid in the healing process and reduce healing times enabling you to return to normal activities quicker.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
TotalFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
- Want to improve fine lines, wrinkles, scars, tone, texture, and pigmentation, all at once.
- Looking to achieve dramatic results in only one treatment
- Want a procedure that has minimal downtime
The TotalFX procedure is applied in two steps. First, your physician will numb your skin with a topical anesthetic to aid in treatment comfort. The DeepFX laser is applied first followed by the ActiveFX. Your total treatment time will last approximately 30 minutes, though total time will vary depending on the area treated by fraxel laser.
During the procedure, you will feel a warm sensation as the fraxel laser is applied. Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm and will appear as though you were sunburned. Dr. Quintana will provide you with a skin care regimen to follow for the days following your treatment and as your skin heals, you will begin to notice an improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, tone, and texture. You should expect to continue to see improvement for up to six months following the procedures.

What is ActiveFX?
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 fraxel 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.
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
Results of treatment can be maximized with proper sun protection. Most effects of treatment become visible right away, whereas others—such as new collagen formation—build up gradually and results continue to be visible over time. Therefore, most people continue to show improvement up to six months after the procedure.
Is ActiveFX Right for Me?
ActiveFX is an ideal treatment option if you:
- Have a busy lifestyle or cannot be away from work for a long time
- Want noticeable results with minimal downtime
- Want to treat dyschromia, fine lines, and wrinkles
What is DeepFX?
DeepFX is a revolutionary fractional laser technology for aged, sun-damaged or scarred skin. The low-downtime procedure uses fractional CO2, laser microbeams to precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. This stimulates a cascade of healing responses that leads to tissue regeneration and new collagen formation throughout the entire treatment area. Healing time is often limited to just a few days because only a fraction of the skin is actually touched by the fraxel laser.
Benefits of DeepFX
- Results in a single treatment
- Minimal downtime
- Improves scars, wrinkles and texture
- Deep dermal stimulation
You will notice immediate softening of wrinkles, fine lines and scars as the skin heals from the treatment. In addition, the skin responds by stimulating organic growth of new collagen that continues for up to six months. Results of the treatment are long-lasting and with proper skin care can last for many years.
