What can I expect from my treatment?
First, we can use a topical anesthetic. However, due to the non-ablative nature of the laser, most patients find treatments extremely comfortable. The FDA-cleared system includes temperature-monitoring CoolScan™ technology to ensure the skin always stays protected. Treatments can take 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the targeted area. Multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart produce the best results.
How does the laser work?
The ResurFX laser was developed by Lumenis®, one of the world’s leading makers of medical devices, as a skin resurfacing option that prioritizes patient comfort just as much as effectiveness. It is a non-ablative laser, meaning it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming any tissue. As collagen grows, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful.
ResurFX is also a fractional laser, meaning the laser light that is delivered to the skin is divided into tiny dots. Unlike other fractional devices, ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. The device allows for highly customizable treatments, as we can adjust factors such as laser shape, size, density, and energy strength to fit each patient’s precise needs.
What can I expect after treatment?
Mild redness, tingling, or swelling may be present for up to a week, but these side effects should fade quickly and be easily concealed by makeup. Patients can return to their everyday activities immediately after a ResurFX treatment. Remember, It’s important for patients to properly protect their skin from the sun after any laser treatment.
