Our newest cosmetic laser is the Lumenis ResurFX, which we are excited to add to our roster of skincare treatments. ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional resurfacing laser with built-in cooling technology for enhanced patient comfort. It is very effective and only requires one pass, which not only saves you time but reduces any risk of complication from multiple passes.
What Does ResurFX Treat?
ResurFX can treat a number of skin concerns, including:
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin tone and texture
If you suffer from any of these concerns and want to achieve smooth, even, youthful skin, you may be a good candidate for ResurFX. During your consultation, our doctors will examine your skin, listen to your skincare goals, and let you know if ResurFX is right for you.
How Does ResurFX Work?
ResurFX is non-ablative, meaning it targets the underlying dermal layer of the skin without harming the epidermis. It gently heats the dermal tissue in a fractional pattern, which stimulates collagen production and creates smoother, more youthful looking skin.
ResurFX is a gentle laser that requires very little downtime. Most patients are able to return to their everyday activities the next day. Side effects may include a sunburned appearance and minor swelling, which generally resolve within a day or two. You may need a series of treatments for optimal results; how many treatments are needed to achieve your goals will be discussed during your consultation.
ResurFX can be combined with other cosmetic procedures for what we call a “non-surgical facelift.” A combination of skincare procedures can provide a more comprehensive effect that one treatment alone might not be able to achieve. ResurFX can be used together with other cosmetic treatments such as:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane
- Skin tightening procedures such as Ultherapy
- Fat reduction treatments such as CoolMini or Kybella
