What ResurFx Can Help You Treat

If the texture and appearance of your skin is troubling you - if it looks tired and dull, or if you have wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scars, for instance - you don’t have to just live with it.

Thanks to the Lumenis® resurfacing treatment ResurFX™, your skin can look clearer, tighter, firmer, and more youthful. 

Here at Skin Med Spa, we use ResurFX to treat many common skin conditions. Here’s how it works.

What is ResurFX?

ResurFX is a non-ablative, fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment. That just means it’s gentle and only affects a portion, or a fraction of your skin. Because the laser is fractional and can target cells directly, it can provide a noticeable improvement to your skin with minimal discomfort and downtime. 

Skin conditions that respond well to the treatment include:

How does it work?

ResurFX works as a skin resurfacing treatment by using the heat energy from the laser to stimulate deeper layers of the skin to begin production of new collagen and elastic fibers. As the new collagen is produced, your skin becomes firmer, tighter, more even, and more youthful.

ResurFX was developed by laser medical experts. It delivers the laser to the skin in a precise fashion and integrates a cooling system to keep you safe. The treatment is FDA-approved and has been clinically shown to get results. Each treatment session takes about 30-45 minutes. Our expert team will apply a topical anesthetic to the area scheduled to be treated to make sure you are comfortable.

Though you can begin to see changes after the first treatment, results are cumulative, so it usually takes three or four treatments to achieve the best look.

After each treatment, your skin will feel hot and irritated, similar to a sunburn. You may have some redness and swelling, so plan on going back to work the day after your treatment. Make sure to avoid the sun for a few days and apply moisturizer several times a day to help the area heal well.

Stretch Mark Removal

ResurFx also works to remove those pesky stretch marks you see in the mirror. Whether you have them as a result of pregnancy or a growth spurt during puberty, we can help you regain smooth skin on your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, or chest.

Stretch marks develop when your skin’s collagen and elastin break down under stress; our laser treatment stimulates collagen growth to tighten that skin up and give it a firm, vibrant appearance once again, so you feel more confident during your time at the pool or beach.

The better you take care of your skin, the longer the results from skin resurfacing will hold.
