Total FX Was Worth It!!!

Living in Florida as a teenager, I was one of many...

Living in Florida as a teenager, I was one of many sun lovers and I have the type of skin that has no business being exposed to the sun. I became one big freckle. Now, living in Fairfield, CT and being much older and wiser, (depending on the day) I have spent years and thousands trying to reverse the damage. I have had many treatments all over to reduce the freckling. My face, arms, legs, and chest were all treated with IPL laser called photo-facial treatments. I have used Obagi, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels on my face, but always seemed to have a residual pigmentation I could not get rid of. With the sun damage my face aged prematurely. My doctor has the Total FX treatment that I have been doing a lot of research on. I talked to him and his nurse many times about it before getting the courage up to do it. First, let me say, they did tell me the recovery was no walk in the park, and they were right ,but they prepared me. My attitude was, I’m putting myself through this, so I’m going to deal with it. It was a week exactly before I could put on makeup. I did it right after the New Year, so I felt that it was a good time to hide out. The doctor started me on Obagi for about 2 months after the treatment and my skin has been improving since. The first thing I noticed was my pigmentation. Finally CLEAR!!! I was getting juvederm in my laugh lines and I haven’t needed any since. I have noticed tightening, but I didn’t have a lot of loose skin to begin with. The fine wrinkles are definitely less, especially around my mouth and eyes. This was a great experience for me. I can’t explain how happy I am. I have spent years and thousands trying to get my skin to a healthy look without covering it up with tons of makeup. I always wanted naturally beautiful skin and now people look at me and see my old pictures from 10 years ago and think I look younger now. I agree… I highly recommend this treatment, and Dr. Sofer and his nurse where awesome. Great office.

I have been seeing Dr. Sofer for botox and juvederm for years. My sister had her breast enlarged with him and also had a great experience. I just trust him and his office. Very accommodating.
