Get Total Skin Rejuvenation in a Single Treatment
- Posted on: Nov 15 2021
Aging skin often seems to develop new and frustrating conditions at warp speed. What better way to manage warp-speed problems than with laser technology? In our NYC dermatology and laser center, we offer a variety of services that have demonstrated strong efficacy during clinical testing. Studies have shown that TotalFX™ fractional laser treatment has the power to rejuvenate the skin in a single visit. Here, we discuss what treatment involves and why now may be the best time for you to schedule your TotalFX™ treatment with us.
What is TotalFX™?
TotalFX™ may sound somewhat complicated. This is because it is a combination of two other laser technologies, DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™. Each is a fractional laser procedure, meaning that they touch only a fraction of the skin across the treatment surface. Enough to stimulate a healing response but also to leave bridges of untouched tissue, as well. One might think that leaving part of the skin untouched might diminish the effectiveness of a laser treatment. The opposite is actually true. Fractional laser treatments enhance the healing response while also shortening the downtime needed after the procedure.
DeepFX™ is a microbeam treatment that creates very narrow columns of “injury” into deeper layers of the skin. The body heals these micro injuries with an influx of collagen, the protein that firms and thickens the skin and also lightens dark spots and smooths roughness. ActiveFX™ utilizes a larger laser beam to target the upper layer of the skin. This mechanism promotes tissue regeneration and can even out skin pigmentation and texture.
The benefits of TotalFX™
TotalFX™ has been designed as a dual-level treatment that achieves comprehensive regeneration in a single visit. The combination of laser technologies present in this procedure offer benefits such as:
- Immediate tissue tightening stimulated by the transfer of thermal energy to collagen fibers.
- Softening of creases in the skin and a reduction in fine lines.
- Improved skin tone and texture.
- Firmer and plumper skin as a result of collagen remodeling.
- Prolonged collagen production achieves enduring cosmetic results.
Laser resurfacing treatments used to incur pretty profound side effects that required a week or two off work. Fractional laser treatments like TotalFX™ offer significant cosmetic results with minimal redness and rapid healing.
