WHAT IS THE LUMENIS RESURFX?
The ResurFX laser from Lumenis is a non-ablative fractional resurfacing device that can be used for all manner of skin conditions, including acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, loose skin, and stretch marks. Non-ablative means that it does not injure the surface of the skin; rather, it penetrates below the epidermis to stimulate the dermis to produce more collagen. Increasing collagen production results in firmer, plumper skin, as well as a more even skin tone and texture.
The ResurFX has over 600 different combinations of shape, density, and size that can be used, allowing for a fully customizable experience. In addition, it requires only one pass to be effective, which reduces the chances of injury to the skin and shortens procedure time.
WHAT IS A RESURFX PROCEDURE LIKE?
ResurFX technology includes built-in continuous contact cooling to ensure patient comfort. In addition, precise placement of the laser energy along with the continuous cooling means that skin tissue is protected from the risk of overheating. Most patients find that a ResurFX procedure is comfortable, with minimal if any pain or discomfort.
Results from a ResurFX procedure will appear gradually, over the course of several treatments. Your dermatologist will discuss how many treatments you will need during your consultation. Side effects may include mild redness or swelling on the areas treated, but these side effects are temporary and should disappear on their own within a week. Following any laser procedure, it is vital to stay out of the sun when told to by your dermatologist, as your skin will be more vulnerable to UV rays.
