How Does ResurFX™ Help Improve Skin

ResurFX™ is a non-ablative fractional laser treatment that helps improve the skin. The skin resurfacing technology helps treat several skin conditions. The treatment is gentle and does not destroy skin cells, affecting only a fraction or portion of the skin. 


The laser targets the cells directly, providing noticeable improvement with minimal discomfort and recovery time. Optimum benefits of the ResurFX procedure are realized after several treatments. The results will depend on the skin condition and the desired results.


Conditions Treated With ResurFX


As mentioned before, the laser procedure can be used to treat a number of skin conditions. These conditions include skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, stretch marks, and acne scars. Other conditions that can be treated are uneven skin tone, surgery scars, and loose skin. The severity of the condition will determine the results that can be expected.


Benefits of Skin Resurfacing 


Skin resurfacing with ResurFX can help you look and feel younger. The treatment can eliminate signs of aging such as wrinkles while enhancing the overall skin appearance. The laser procedure is FDA-approved, safe, non-invasive, and can be used on any skin type. The procedure will leave the patient feeling better quickly. 


How ResurFX Works


ResurFX laser treatment works by stimulating the deep layers of the skin using heat energy. This in turn causes collagen and new elastin fibers to develop. This process happens without ablating or harming the skin. An increase in collagen causes the skin to look more even, tighter, and more youthful. 


The fractional laser affects only small parts of the skin, delivering tiny dots precisely with a single pass of the device. The laser procedure has an integrated cooling system that keeps the skin safe. The treatment is comfortable, quick, and effective with reduced recovery time.   


ResurFX Treatment Sessions


ResurFX sessions can take between 20 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the area to make sure the client is comfortable. 


Most patients start to see changes after the initial treatment, but the results are cumulative. It can take three or four sessions to achieve optimum results. After treatment, the skin may feel irritated and hot, much like the sensation from a sunburn. Some patients experience some swelling and redness, but this goes away after a day or two.


After the ResurFX


It is necessary to avoid the sun for several days after the treatment. Applying moisturizer to the treated area will help in the healing process. Most patients can return to their normal routine a day after the treatment. 


The minor irritation and redness fade very fast. It is very important to wear sunscreen every day after treatment to protect the skin long-term. The procedure is completed after several treatments. Three to four treatments, one month apart, are recommended for optimum results. 


If the appearance and texture of your skin are bothering you, you need to talk to a skin specialist. ResurFX treatment can give you the skin that you desire. Taking good care of your skin after the resurfacing will help ensure that you enjoy the results for longer.
