Ultrapulse CO2 TotalFX™

patient receiving laser treatments at Devenir Aesthetics located in Austin Texas
Ultrapulse Co2 TotalFX™ procedure is an effective method to remove stretch marks.


TotalFX™ is a revolutionary fractional treatment. It combines DeepFX™ and ResurFX™ (also known as ActiveFX™) procedures for total solutions in one treatment with moderate downtime. Fractional treatments treat only a fraction of the skin, leaving bridges of untouched skin that facilitate healing — thus enabling you to return to normal activities quicker.

DeepFX™ utilizes a very narrow laser micro-beam to remove columns of tissue deep into the layers of the skin. The body then heals the channel which stimulates immediate new collagen growth to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and fine lines. ResurFX™ uses a larger beam to treat the upper layer of skin to remove unwanted pigmentation, promote new skin regeneration, and improve fine lines and texture.

What are the benefits of TotalFX™?

DeepFX™ and ResurFX™ combine to create dual-level results in the TotalFX™ procedure.

  • Both treatments are capable of delivering dramatic outcomes with DeepFX™ creating more pronounced tightening
  • DeepFX™ delivers immediate tightening of the skin
  • Reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and a subtle softening of deeper wrinkles
  • Skin tone is more even and texture is smoother
  • New collagen is formed as a response to the treatment, firming and “plumping” skin tissue
  • Treatments help skin revert to a healthier appearance
  • DeepFX™ + ResurFX™ laser treatments provide enduring results. With proper protection from UV, the effects can last for years. Early effects are nearly immediate with improved skin tone and appearance. Gradual deep tissue tightening continues over the next 3 to 6 months and most patients notice a continuing improvement during that time.

How many treatments will I need?

The TotalFX™ treatment is a single-treatment plan.

What results can I expect to see?

With the TotalFX™ procedure you will notice immediate softening of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars as the skin heals from the treatment. In addition, the skin responds by stimulating growth of new collagen that continues for up to six months. Results of the treatment are long-lasting and with the proper skincare regimen and sun protection can last for many years. Some patients are satisfied with their results for up to 10 years and then will consider a follow-up treatment with ResurFX™.

What is a treatment like?

After pre-cleansing, a topical anesthetic is applied prior to treatment and oral medications are given in order to make the patient relaxed during the procedure. We ask our patients to have a driver to take them home given the sedation during the procedure. The TotalFX™ procedure is applied in two steps. The DeepFX™ laser is applied first followed by the ResurFX™. As the laser beams are applied, you will feel a warm sensation at the treatment area. A machine supplying a cold stream of air will also be used during treatment to offset the heated sensation. Most patients experience mild to moderate discomfort.

What will I look like immediately after treatment?

Immediately following treatment, your skin will be warm and will appear as though you were sunburned. The treated area may swell, which often is part of the healing inflammation process. Your provider will provide you with a skin care regimen to follow for the days following your treatment. And we will schedule a follow-up appointment to observe your procedure’s progress.

What is TotalFX™?

TotalFX™is a dual micro-fractional CO2 laser procedure performed in a single treatment session. Downtime is comparatively short – usually several days to a week.

Fractional laser is very unique in that only a percentage of the entire surface is treated. This makes healing much faster, reduces the risk of infection and maintains normal pigmentation. The laser beam is broken up into thousands of tiny dots which then penetrate the selected area. Small areas of untouched skin, referred to as “bridges” provide active healthy cell generation much more quickly than that of full tissue removal found with less proficient resurfacing lasers.

Do the treatments hurt?

Before the procedure a topical numbing cream is applied. We recommend that oral medications are given in order to make the patient relaxed during the procedure. We ask our patients to have a driver to take them home given the sedation during the procedure. We also use a machine that supplies a stream of cold air while treating. After the laser treatment, the patient feels as if they have a bad sunburn for 2-4 hours. Although there may be some swelling and redness over the next few days, very few patients report notable discomfort.

How long is TotalFX™ effective for?
You will see immediate results — continuing for up to six months due to the new collagen formation.

Patients should expect about 5-7 days of crusting and social downtime. After one week, new skin is revealed that is quite pink. This pinkness will continue to fade over the next 4-6 weeks and covers well with make-up.

Under the provider’s guidance, the patient can start to use sunscreens and their make-up one week after the procedure. The patient should expect to look 3-5 years younger with one TotalFX™ treatment. This resurfacing laser has the benefit of being a one-time treatment.

For best results, many patients will also undergo volume replacement after the laser treatment. Therefore, the skin itself is healthier and the structure underneath the skin is replaced to provide the fullness and lift that more youthful faces possess.

This approach stimulates great rejuvenation for the most natural look and keeps you from undergoing plastic surgery. The TotalFX™ should last you for years to come, especially if one continues maintenance of a good skin care regimen, sun avoidance, and more mild resurfacing procedures such as facials, chemical peels, SkinPen®, Photofractional, or ResurFX™.

How much does ActiveFX™ cost?

Cost ranges from $1000 to $5000 depending on the area being treated.

The experience was amazing and I’ll return for another session.
