ResurFX is a non-ablative laser treatment that targets common textural issues in the skin, such as fine lines, uneven skin texture and tone, stretch marks, scarring, and acne scars. Try the ResurFX treatment to produce younger, smoother, and more radiant skin.

Get The Facts

This non-ablative laser treatment is less invasive to the skin and requires less downtime than ablative options. The ResurFX laser heats targeted tissue, creating controlled minor “wounds” deeper in the skin without destroying any surrounding tissue. The heat stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing response to produce collagen and elastin, which, in time, creates a smoother skin surface. Depending on the severity of the skin concerns, multiple treatments may be required for optimal results. After the laser treatments, results to the skin will continue to improve for up to six months.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ What is a non-ablative laser?

ResurFX is non-ablative, meaning that this type of laser does not damage the surface of the skin, making it safe for most skin types with minimal downtime. It targets deeper, specific tissue creating a tightening effect and an overall even complexion.

+ What should I expect after a ResurFX treatment?

Because we are heating the deeper layers of the skin, most clients describe the ResurFX treatment as a tingling hot sensation. Immediately following ResurFX, your skin will feel warm and inflamed. The skin will be flaking, dry, or reddened for 2-3 days post-treatment. For patients with sensitive skin, the irritation can take up to a couple weeks to fully subside.

+ Can I receive other treatments during a ResurFX regime?

Yes! Combining IPL with ResurFX is known as a Photofractional treatment, which targets unwanted pigment and texture in one treatment. If targeting scars, depending on the type of scarring, we recommend pairing ResurFX with a PRP treatment to enhance the wound healing response, or a Steroid Scar Injection to help diminish the excess scar tissue. It’s best to wait 4 weeks between treatments to allow the skin time to heal.

+ How long do the results of ResurFX treatment last?

The results of ResurFX treatment can be long-lasting; however, they are not permanent. Factors such as the individual’s age, lifestyle, and ongoing skin care routine can affect the duration of the results. Periodic maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the improvements.

+ Can ResurFX be used on all skin types?

Yes, ResurFX is suitable for various skin types, including light and dark skin. However, it is essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine if ResurFX is the right treatment for your specific skin concerns.

+ What is the downtime associated with ResurFX treatment?

After a ResurFX treatment, there is generally a short downtime of 1 to 3 days. During this time, the skin may appear red and feel slightly sunburned. However, this can vary from person to person.
