ResurFX™ Skin Resurfacing
What is it?
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment is a skin rejuvenation solution which offers remarkable results for younger, healthier, glowing skin. This fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to more radiant, youthful looking skin.
How does it work?
The ResurFX™ fractional laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative, skin resurfacing technology. Laser microbeams heat the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate production of collagen and elastic fibers. The advanced scanner delivers the laser beans in a precise manner with integrated cooling to ensure maximum comfort. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
When will I see results?
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines. But, already after the first treatment, you will notice changes in pores dimensions. Optimal results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 week intervals. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. You must stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and apply sunscreen.
What skin problems and conditions does it treat?
Fine lines and wrinkles, acne and injury related scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation or discoloration, uneven skin tone, age spots or sun spots, loose skin, enlarged pores and more!
