ResurFX™ is a non-ablative laser skin resurfacing treatment that penetrates deeply into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. These proteins are necessary for soft, tight, and healthy-looking skin, but naturally begin to decline as we age.
Unlike ablative laser skin resurfacing, ResurFX does not remove the top layer of skin. Instead, this safe and comfortable option utilizes advanced technology to penetrate deeper than other lasers to repair the skin from the inside and address issues as diverse as:
- Acne and Surgical Scars
- Age and Sunspots
- Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles
- Large and Clogged Pores
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
- Broken Blood Vessels
- Skin Laxity and Sagging
ResurFX is gentle without sacrificing effectiveness, though it may take two to four sessions to achieve ideal outcomes. In these cases, treatments are spaced several weeks apart to allow for complete healing in between.
Recovery from ResurFX is quick. Most people resume work within 24 hours and normal activities within just a few days. Your skin may appear sunburnt, and some redness is expected, but following pre and postoperative directions will help with these issues and work to speed recovery and improve your final results.
The most popular ResurFX treatment area is the face. Other common treatment areas include:
- The Back of the Hands
- The Neck and Throat
- The Chest and Décolletage
ResurFX can be used on the back, the arms, or many other parts of the body. The best way to find out where it may be helpful for your goals is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Young at our comfortable Leawood office.
