What skin problems can ResurFX treat?

- Smooth out fine lines & wrinkles
- Erase age spots & freckles
- Reduce the appearance of stretch marks

ResurFX is a non-ablative, fractional laser
With so many different types of lasers on the market, figuring out the important differences can become confusing. ResurFX is an FDA-approved, non-ablative laser. This means that it works without removing any layers of skin. Instead, the heat and light energy pass through the skin cells while leaving them intact. In contrast, ablative lasers remove layers of skin a very precise manner until the appropriate depth is reached. Ablative lasers can be very effective in removing certain skin blemishes, but require more downtime.
One key advantage of ResurFX is that it is also a fractional laser. Not only does it leave the skin’s layers intact, but it only requires a fraction of the skin in the treatment area to be directly affected by the laser in order to produce the desired results. The fractional patterns can be adjusted to conform to a patient’s unique needs, allowing us to treat the area with only one pass of the laser.
What this means for you is less damage to the skin, faster treatment, and less recovery time when compared to other lasers resurfacing platforms.
What is ResurFX laser resurfacing treatment like?
Laser resurfacing with the ResurFX is a relatively quick, comfortable procedure for most patients. While the laser is gentle by design, we apply a topical cooling gel prior to treatment. After dialing in the laser to your specific needs, our aesthetician will apply the laser over the treatment area, where the laser energy penetrates the skin, delivering heat that stimulates cell repair. Treatments typically last 15-30 minutes, depending on your needs, and you should be able to resume most daily activities immediately after treatment.
How many ResurFX treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to achieve the desired results depends on the nature and severity of the skin problem you would like to correct. On average, patients require 2-4 treatments, spaced about 4 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
