ResurFX laser is the latest in non-ablative, fractional laser technology to improve skin Acne scars stretch marks, wrinkles and more. Non-ablative means it does not destroy or ablate the skin layers. While fractional means it is only affecting a fraction or percentage of the skin. The benefit of the ResurFX is that it can 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.
How Does the Lumenis ResurFX Laser Work?
ResurFX is a fractional laser that operates at a 1565 nm wavelength to heat the skin and create controlled thermal damage. These micro-injuries then initiate a wound-healing response that stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. Boosting collagen production is the key to radiant, youthful skin and improves its texture and tone, as well as its appearance.
The advanced scanner in ResurFX delivers laser beams in a precise manner and integrates cooling. The algorithm places each fractional spot in a controlled manner to protect the tissue from heat accumulation and overheating. This ability is unique to the ResurFx 1565nm fibre laser. The ResurFx handpiece is also equipped with continuous contact cooling to increase your comfort during treatment. It ensures that you are both safe and comfortable during the procedure. Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFx needs only one pass to be effective, saving you time and protecting your skin as well.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A RESURFX ACNE SCAR LASER SESSION?

Before your treatment, your doctor applies a topical anaesthetic and wait for 45 minutes to 1 hour to make you more comfortable. Due to the non-ablative nature of the ResurFX laser, most patients find treatments extremely comfortable.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. It is essential to avoid direct sun exposure and to apply a sunscreen with SPF of 30, or higher should be worn daily in the days after the procedure.
