Hello, I Just got Total Fx done a Day ago. I have acne since I was a kid and finally got on Accutane a year or so ago. I have always been self consious about my scars and couldn't wait till the year was up after Accutane to be able to do something about it. I was told I would need 2 treatments... READ MORE

I just had Total FX, two days ago on July 22, 2008 in Santa Monica, CA. She is the dermatologist seen on the show "Extreme Makeover", but it was actually one of her nurses that performed the procedure for acne scarring and a few small undereye wrinkles. I am a 41 year old female with... READ MORE

Procedure pain was and 8 of 10 but bearable because it was over in 20 mins. Pain continued to burn for about 18 hours where it started to subside and was almost all gone by day 3 . 1st day it helped to sleep in front of a fan and have a wet wash cloth. I expected it to start to peal sooner... READ MORE

I arrived at ! and was given a Valium and a Benadryl while the nurse covered my face with numbing cream. 45 minutes later the procedure began. She placed eye guards inside my eyes so she could get close to my lashes. I was sleepy and I have to say, the pain was bad but tolerable. She... READ MORE

Had Total FX on 12/22. Did it mostly for fine lines and sun spots. The pros were: most of the sun spots are gone. Down time was only 5-6 days. Fine lines are sofented or just plain gone. Cons are: The pain was something I wasn't expecting. Did really well around my eyes, but anywhere near... READ MORE

I've been putting this off and finally decided to go for it. The treatment was pretty tolerable in my opinion. I read some comments from other people who made it seem absolutely horrifying. But I realize it's all in your attitude. They first put numbing cream on my face for about 20-30... READ MORE

Here goes nothing. I promised myself I would write a review after my procedure since www.realself.com was invaluable to me before (and during recovery from) Total FX. I've also decided to attach photos so you can judge for yourself. Both before photographs were taken before Botox and Total... READ MORE

I had active FX and Deep Fx combined for "Total FX".Excellent improvement in skin tone, reduction in pore size, 50% improvement to acne scars. Procedure hurt, but only while they were doing it. Fcae was super hot for about 4 hours after. After that no Pain or discomfort. You will not... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I have been lurking on this board for a few weeks researching the Total FX procedure. After doing endless research, I decided to go for it! Day 1: I went to the office and brought my two pain meds and an anti-anxiety med as requested by laser technician, Lisa. I took the meds and... READ MORE

I had read that Total FX was the gold standard for laser. I researched dermatologists all over the Seattle area. I couldn't be happier with my choice.Dr Jacobson was so sweet before, during and after the procedure. She was very patient with all my questions and answered her emails right away. I... READ MORE

Not sure about the procedure results yet as i am only on day one post Total Fx- but what i can say is that Dr Bapna and the entire staff are great! He is so laid back and down to earth- very easy to talk to, and really knows his stuff when it comes to laser resurfacing, I did my own research as... READ MORE

I had this procedure two days ago, and don't yet know how I will turn out. I mainly wanted to address crepiness under my eyes when I smile. Otherwise, I have very few noticeable wrinkles. I am 56 and hated those areas that "wadded up" under my eyes! The procedure was a breeze thanks to my... READ MORE

I'm 48 years old, fair skinned, grew up in So Cal at the beach and have been a user of sunscreen my entire life from pure necessity. I had Total FX to improve skin tone and texture while softening wrinkles. I went into the laser with a bit of apprehension as I was not disappointed with my aging... READ MORE

I am 31 almost 32 years old - pretty much done with my active acne phase - with the occasional premenstrual breakout. I have been looking for a long time for something to help my acne scarring. I have boxcar scars on my forehead and ice pick scars on my cheek - and lots of discoloration... READ MORE

My doctor told me to get total fx for crows feet. It did absolutely NOTHING for crows feet. I already had a great complexion, so the results were zero! Maybe the FX lasers work on brown spots, but it does not work well on orbital creases or sagging. The doctor was very experienced and really... READ MORE

I also had a bletharoplasty, eyelid lift,!! , at the same time. ON the way to my first appointment with Dr. R, I told my husband that we were only going for a consultation and I wasn't about to make any life-changing decisions. I walked out with a date for surgery! I think it was a... READ MORE

I had Total FX 6 days ago. I did it because I have moderate acne scars. It has been a really bad experience. It was slightly painful, the doc put metal shields under my eyelids, this was very scary. In the days following my procedure, I was swollen to the point my eyes were sealed shut. My left... READ MORE

This is the third, similar laser procedure I've had in the last 16 years. I did it again to mitigate extensive sun damage while younger and to reduce pore-size appearance more than minimize wrinkles, of which I'm fortunate not to have many, amazingly enough (perhaps thanks to previous... READ MORE
