ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional laser, meaning it can emit powerful light energy without visibly damaging the outer layer of skin. The fact that it is a fractional device means that it emits energy in a dotted pattern that leaves some skin undamaged, resulting in less discomfort and downtime. The laser is applied to create controlled thermal damage and micro-injuries. As these micro-injuries heal, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in resilient, glowing skin. 

 Patients receiving this treatment will come in for topical numbing prior to treatment, alleviating any discomfort during the actual treatment. The patient will experience initial redness immediately after treatment, which will go down a few hours post treatment and then redness might be prominent for a few days post-treatment. Our Doctors will recommend specific post-care products to minimize healing time and maximize results.

What Can You Expect During the Fractional Laser Treatment?

We thoroughly cleanse your treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic on your skin to minimize any discomfort that you may feel during the laser treatment. The level of discomfort varies from individual to individual. However, most patients feel a mild tingling and stinging sensation during treatment. The duration of treatment is 15 to 20 minutes, depending on your area of treatment. We also give you post-treatment care instructions.

What to Expect After the Fractional Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?

The Resurfx fractional laser treatment generally has common side effects, including swelling and redness. These symptoms subside in a day or two. You can use a cold compress to minimize them. You should avoid exposure to direct sunlight and apply SPF sunscreen to the treated skin diligently during the treatment course. In most cases, patients can resume their routine activities after treatment.
