The non-ablative resurfacing laser by Lumenis, ReSurfx, is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology to improve skin discoloration, stretch marks, acne scars, wrinkles and more. Non-ablative means it does not destroy or ablate the skin cells, while fractional means it is only affecting a fraction or percentage of the skin, allowing the surrounding unaffected skin to assists with wound healing. This results in a short recovery time with excellent results.
ReSurfx is highly versatile and effective in addressing various skin concerns, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Sun damage and age spots
Uneven skin tone and texture
Whether you're seeking overall skin rejuvenation or targeting specific problem areas, ReSurfx can be customized to meet your unique skincare needs.
How Does ReSurfx Work?
The magic of ReSurfx lies in its fractional non-ablative laser technology. The laser energy penetrates deep into the skin, creating microscopic treatment zones. This triggers the body's natural healing response, stimulating collagen and elastin production. The result is firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
The fractional approach ensures that surrounding healthy skin remains untouched, minimizing downtime and discomfort associated with traditional ablative laser treatments.
What Can I Expect During the ReSurfx Procedure?
Your ReSurfx procedure will typically begin with a consultation to assess your skin concerns and determine the most effective treatment plan. During the procedure:
Your skin will be cleansed, and a numbing cream is applied to enhance comfort.
The ReSurfx handpiece will be gently moved across the treatment area, delivering precise laser energy. Patients often describe the sensation as a mild, warm prickling feeling, and the use of cooling technology helps ensure a comfortable experience.
Most sessions take approximately 30-60 minutes, depending on the size and condition of the treated area.
What Can I Expect After the ReSurfx Procedure?
Following your ReSurfx treatment, you may experience some mild redness and swelling, similar to a sunburn. These effects are temporary and typically subside within a few days. It's crucial to follow post-procedure care instructions provided by your skincare professional, which may include gentle skincare products and sun protection.
As the weeks progress, you'll notice gradual improvements in skin tone, texture, and overall radiance. The full benefits of ReSurfx become more apparent over time as collagen continues to rebuild.
How Many Treatments Are Needed?
The number of ReSurfx treatments required varies based on individual skin conditions and goals. Many individuals achieve significant results after a series of 3-5 sessions spaced a few weeks apart. Your dermatologist will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and desired outcomes.
