I had a Total FX treatment yesterday Jan. 14, 2010 and wanted to share my day with people that are considering this treatment. I had read many reviews online and was surprised to see so many negative reviews. My experience was very good. I'm only a day into it so I'm not sure what my final result will be.
I had pain killers, numerous injections into my mouth and face, and the numbing cream. And I still felt some of the laser treatment. I can handle a high degree of pain so I would recommend to anyone doing this to take the pain medications offered. Otherwise it would be too painful. I also opted for pain meds to take home and I am glad I did because I have not had any discomfort.
I have followed the doctors recommendations for icing , every hour for 10 minutes and soaking with vinegar and water for 20 minutes 3 or 4 times a day and then cleansing with the recommended cleanser. I am swollen but not too bad and it only got better not worst the second day. It's a lot of work, all this icing, soaking, cleansing, and then sleeping as much as you can oh and did I mention drinking lots and lots of water? But so far the effort has paid off.
