ResurFX

The latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology

The 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.  The benefit of the ResurFX is that it is able to get great results with minimal recovery time unlike the CO2 laser, which has several days or more of peeling, crusting and possible swelling after the procedure.  The optimum benefits of ResurFX are obtained with several treatments depending on the condition and desired results.

The DermaCenter™ staff is committed to the highest level of customer service, and wants its clients to be informed of their options.

  • How does ResurFX work?
How does ResurFX work?

It is a non-ablative laser, which means it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating any skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. 

ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered to the skin in tiny dots and to only a fraction of the skin.  The ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time.  Finally, since it is a non-ablative, fractional laser, the recovery time after the procedure is minimized.


  • What can I expect during the ResurFX procedure?
What can I expect during the ResurFX procedure?

During a ResurFX laser skin rejuvenation treatment, we typically use a topical anesthetic. Due to the non-ablative nature of the ResurFX laser, most patients find treatments extremely comfortable. 

Additionally, we use a cooling air device that blows refreshing, cold air on the treated areas for comfort. Treatments can take 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.


  • What can I expect after the ResurFX procedure?
What can I expect after the ResurFX procedure?

After ResurFX laser skin resurfacing, patients can return to their normal activities the following day after the procedure. Redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to a mild sunburn may develop, but these effects typically subside in just a few days. 

Sun exposure before and after treatment should be avoided and sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be worn daily in the days following the procedure. 


  • How many treatments are needed?
How many treatments are needed?

ResurFX is completed as a series of treatments. Because it is a limited downtime procedure, it usually requires multiple treatments for significant and meaningful results. 

Typically, at least 3-4 treatments about one month apart are necessary to obtain optimum results, although this varies by the individual and their goal.
