ResurFX is the most advanced technology in laser skin resurfacing. ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional resurfacing laser. It stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers in the deep layers of the skin. This procedure can reduce photo damaged skin & scar tissue on the face, neck, chest, hands, among other areas on the body. This procedure reveals a younger, more refined skin and dramatically reduces the appearance of wrinkles, scarring and age spots.
Laser skin resurfacing can achieve:
Reduced appearance of brown spots / pigmentation
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
Reduced appearance of acne and surgical scars
Improved tone and texture
Reduced actinic keratosis (sun spots)
The ResurFX laser improves:
Wrinkles: Wrinkles around the eyes, and elsewhere on the face.
Scarring: Including Acne scars, Striae / stretch marks, Surgical scars.
Melasma: This condition can be stubborn, and a combination of prescription creams and laser treatments are usually recommended.
Solar lentigines: Also known as age spots, or liver spots.
How does it work?
This is a non-ablative laser frequency, which means the laser energy is able to pass through the epidermis, leaving it intact, and thereby improving safety, reducing discomfort, and reducing downtime.
The energy is absorbed by the dermis, leading to improvements in collagen and other aspects of skin quality.
It is a fractionated laser, which means that the laser energy is delivered via tiny dots using an advanced scanner (with proprietary CoolScan algorithm), which further increases safety and reduces downtime.
The device allows for highly individualized treatments, with adjustments to laser shape, size, density, and energy strength to fit each person’s precise needs. Unlike other fractional
devices, ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective reproducible results, with reduced treatment time.
What does treatment involve?
Topical anaesthetic may be applied 30-60 minutes’ prior, to improve comfort.
Due to the non-ablative nature, the treatment is usually only mildly uncomfortable, and this settles quickly.
Oral painkillers are not usually necessary. There is redness and mild swelling of the skin, and the skin may feel like a sunburn, for the next 1-2 days.
Over the next two weeks there will be some micro crusts appearing on the skin (sand-like feeling), as the old skin is exfoliated.
In addition to these common side effects, patients may experience micro crusts (sand like feeling) itching, dry skin, peeling and flaking.
There is also a small risk of infection, including reactivation of cold sores, and transient hyperpigmentation (especially in those with Asian skin or darker).
These risks can be reduced and any problems managed quickly, by choosing an experienced doctor/therapist to perform your procedure.
A series of 3-5 treatments may be recommended for your individual skin concerns.
