TotalFX Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing in La Jolla, CA


Total FX is a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing used for skin rejuvenation. It treats signs of skin aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Patients looking for Total FX laser treatment in La Jolla prefer the services of Torrey Pines Dermatology & Laser Center.

What Is the Total FX Laser?

Skin aging is a common problem. People typically develop a number of signs of aging over time. Total FX laser provides a complete skin-rejuvenation solution.

Total FX laser is a laser resurfacing treatment that combines Active FX and Deep FX technology. This makes the procedure effective for both surface-layer and deep-layer skin issues, including scars and uneven skin pigmentation as well as sun damage.

How Does the Total FX Laser Work?

This fractional skin resurfacing treatment uses the UltraPulse laser system in various skin layers. The Active FX laser technology peels surface skin layers to remove damaged skin and allow new and fresh skin layers to develop. In addition, the Deep FX laser technology penetrates deep skin layers to treat deeper wrinkles, sun damage, and scars.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Total FX Laser Treatment?

Total FX laser treatment is perfect for patients who are unhappy with the results of their skincare routine or do not have the luxury to take extended time off for a skin rejuvenation treatment. Patients who want noticeable results and a minimal recovery period are ideal candidates for Total FX. Maximum down time is only 5-7 days. This treatment is highly recommended for patients with dyschromia, acne scars, and skin laxity.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, we will listen to your skin concerns and goals. We will perform a physical exam and evaluate your medical history. Based on our findings, we will create a customized Total FX laser treatment plan that can help achieve your skin-rejuvenation goals.

We will explain each detail of the treatment plan to you and answer all questions. This will include giving you information about the actual treatment session and showing you photos of potential results. Instructions will be provided to help you prepare your skin for the Total FX fractional skin-resurfacing treatment.

Your Session

Each Total FX laser session can last around 30 to 40 minutes depending on the treatment areas and treatment plan. Topical anesthesia will be administered for patient comfort as well as using the zimmer cooling device. The laser device will target treatment areas for a complete skin-resurfacing solution.


The patient can go home for a few days of recovery. A complete skin care kit will be given to the patient to prepare the skin prior to treatment as well as treat the skin after the treatment. Patients may experience pink skin coloration and dry skin. Although the patient will experience noticeable results after a week, best results will show 3 months after the treatment session.

How Much Does a Total FX Laser Treatment Cost?

The price for each Total FX laser session will depend on the treatment plan. The number of treatment areas can impact the overall cost of the treatment.
