What is it?
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment is a fractional skin rejuvenation solution, enabling your physician to offer you remarkable results for younger, healthier, glowing looking skin.m The unique Lumenis® fractional rejuvenation technology, the ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, allows for comfortable, fast treatment with remarkable results.
Is It Right for Me?
Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. ResurFX™ is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling, scarring or change of pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture. But, already after the first treatment, you may notice changes in pores dimensions. Typically, results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling may diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
How Does It Work?
The ResurFX™ fractional laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative, skin resurfacing technology. ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin. The ResurFX™ technology enables your physician to achieve excellent clinical results over a sequence of treatments while keeping your comfort maximal and downtime minimal. To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
