Frequently asked questions

What should I expect during the procedure?

The treatment itself lasts approximately 20 minutes. You should plan on an hour for the entire visit in order for us to apply anesthetic cream prior to the treatment, to help minimize discomfort.

During the treatment, you will feel a warm sensation over the area being treated.

How will I know if I need ActiveFX, DeepFX or TotalFX?

Patients can opt for only an ActiveFX treatment, depending on the areas of concern. However, Dr. Bonilla recommends using the ActiveFX and DeepFX treatments together for most patients, as they provide optimal results.

What’s the difference between ActiveFx, DeepFx and TotalFX?

ActiveFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for the active person. It is a fractional laser treatment, meaning only a fraction of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small areas of skin “untouched” allowing for a faster healing process and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. The treatment causes the upper layer of skin to peel off and regenerate a layer of new, healthy skin.

DeepFX is CO2 laser skin resurfacing for deeper wrinkles and scars that have a dermal component. This treatment also uses a fractional pattern to aid in the regeneration process. The deep heating associated with DeepFX causes immediate collagen tightening and long-term collagen remodeling. The patient can expect softening and smoothing of wrinkles and scars, with improved skin texture. The DeepFX treatment is fantastic for wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.

TotalFX combines the ActiveFX and DeepFX systems. The results are fractional resurfacing of the surface of your skin, removing sun damage and brown spots, as well as the deeper skin, removing wrinkles, scars, and uneven skin tone. TotalFX is a complete resurfacing treatment capable of astounding results.

How long does it take to recover from laser skin resurfacing?

Recovery times will vary depending on your treatment. CO2 laser resurfacing recovery is generally up to two weeks.
