ResurFX Treatment Areas

The ResurFX laser painlessly penetrates deep into the skin where it works to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers helps to improve tone and create a softer, smoother, and blemish-free appearance.

The ResurFX laser can be used on the face, neck, chest/décolletage, and hands to address issues including:

  • Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles
  • General Skin Laxity
  • Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Acne and Surgical Scars
  • Large Pores
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Hyper Pigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Rosacea
  • Broken Blood Vessels

As with other fractional, non-ablative laser treatments, ResurFX is safe and effective on all skin types, tones, and complexions. Unlike similar treatments, however, ResurFX utilizes a state-of-the-art CoolScan scanner, allowing for improved comfort and more customizable results. What's more, the ResurFX laser requires only one pass to be effective, which saves time while protecting the health of your skin.

Is Treatment with the ResurFX Laser Painful?

Prior to your ResurFX treatment, your skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic. During your treatment, CoolScan technology will further help to protect your comfort. Following treatment, adhering to the post-treatment instructions provided by our office will help to ensure optimal comfort and the fastest recovery.

Recovery from ResurFX

Following treatment with ResurFX, your skin may appear and feel sunburned and dry. This can last for two to four days. During this time, your skin will begin to peel and may feel slightly swollen in the treatment areas. These are temporary side-effects and should subside on their own. 

You can assist in a shorter and more comfortable recovery by avoiding tobacco products and alcohol, staying away from direct sun exposure, waiting to participate in excessive exercises that induce perspiration, and not submerging the treatment area while swimming.

Keeping your skin clean and dry, and applying all moisturizers and creams recommended or prescribed by our office will also help ensure the best recovery experience. We will provide you with personalized instructions following your treatment to help ensure your recovery is as pleasant as possible.

Severe reactions to fractional laser skin resurfacing are extremely rare, but any discomfort that lasts for longer than one week should be brought to the immediate attention of our board-certified plastic surgeon.

Recovery from treatment with the ResurFX laser can take up to one week, but proper skin care will be necessary for both maintenance and optimal comfort. As a non-surgical treatment, results from ResurFX are both cumulative and gradual. It may take two to three sessions to achieve your goals. We will work directly with you during and after this time to make sure your needs are met. 

How Long do ResurFX Results Last?

Things like surgical and acne scars, once treated, will not come back. For issues including skin laxity, fine lines and deep wrinkles, and tone or textural issues, you can expect results from your ResurFX laser treatment to last for two years – longer if you take proper care of your skin.

We can help you build the ideal at-home skin care routine with our line of Skin Medica® products. This line of professional skin care products is rooted in science, helping to ensure optimal comfort and safety without compromising efficacy. During your time in our care, we would be happy to help you build the perfect home routine to help extend and enhance the results of your ResurFX treatment.
