What is ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing?
ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing is a non-invasive, fractional laser treatment that is used to stimulate the body’s natural process of healing. It can help improve the look, feel, and texture of your skin, giving you a youthful, radiant glow.
How Does it Work?
The shape, size, density, energy of the laser can be specially tailored to meet each patient’s individual needs.
The ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing is a non-ablative laser treatment option. While other lasers can harm the upper layer of the skin, increasing pain and downtime, this method penetrates to the deeper layers of the dermis, leaving the epidermis unharmed. Once this concentrated laser energy reaches the dermis, it stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and other growth factors that promote skin rejuvenation and renewal.
This procedure is so effective because it is fractional, meaning that the laser light isn’t direct at a singular point, but instead divided into tiny dots. This allows the laser to reach a larger area of the dermis, stimulating healing in multiple areas and increasing its effectiveness in improving the skin.
What Can I Expect from ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Each ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing can take thirty minutes or more to complete. We recommend that our patients receive between 4-5 treatments to get the best results possible. While most patients are comfortable during the procedure, we offer a topical anesthetic for individuals that may be more sensitive to heat.
When compared with other laser skin resurfacing treatments, the downtime associated with this procedure is relatively short and mild.
Patients usually experience some degree of swelling, redness, and tingling following treatment. While the swelling typically subsides after two days, other side effects stop within a week of treatment. Because your skin will be more sensitive than usual after a ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing, it’s important that you make sure to wear sunscreen.

- Uneven skin tone or discoloration.
