Scars and stretch marks serve as an unwelcome reminder of accidents, aging-related body changes, or weight gain. There is a safe and reliable stretch mark treatment that will give you give you remarkable, long-lasting results: the Total FX CO2.

What is Total FX CO2?

The Total FX is a fractioned carbon dioxide laser resurfacing treatment. It transforms your skin by smoothing out scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and other textural issues. The Total FX CO2 combines the technology of DeepFX™ and ActiveFX™ to treat multiple layers of skin for thorough rejuvenation.

Fractioned treatment treats only a fraction of the skin surface, leaving small bridges of skin untouched. The pulses of laser light are directed to the exact spot where rejuvenation is needed. This technique speeds the healing of the treated areas and allows you to get back to normal activities sooner.

  • ActiveFX: Uses a larger beam to treat the upper skin layers to treat sun damage, pigmentation, and textural irregularities. It promotes new skin regeneration and stimulates collagen production. ActiveFX can dramatically improve the appearance of scars, fine lines, dark spots, wrinkles, and other irregularities on the chest, face, and neck. This results in a more youthful, tighter skin.
  • DeepFX: Uses a very narrow laser micro-beam to penetrate deeper into the dermis and remove columns of tissue. This stimulates new collagen growth to repair scars from trauma or surgery, acne scars, deeper lesions, stretch marks, and deep lines and wrinkles.

Stretch mark treatment with Total FX is customized based on the severity of your skin irregularities and the areas of treatment.

How Stretch Mark Treatment with Total FX Works

Your procedure starts with numbing the treatment area with a topical anesthetic. Then, an FX laser is applied to your skin, one area at a time for about 45 to 60 minutes. During the procedure, you’ll feel a warm sensation as the laser removes columns of skin tissue.

Immediately after your fractioned CO2 laser treatment, you should expect your skin to be red and swollen and to feel a warm sensation similar to a sunburn. This will last for about 2 to 4 hours. You will need 5 to 7 days of downtime as the skin heals from the treatment. Your medspa professional will guide you on important skin care actions to take during the healing process.

The appearance of your scars and stretch marks should improve within 3 to weeks after the treatment. The effects will build gradually and become obvious for up to 6 months following treatment. With proper aftercare, your results will last for many years.

With the Total FX stretch mark treatment, your scars and stretch marks will be a lot less noticeable. Your skin will have a fresher, more youthful appearance.
