Concerned about Aging Skin?
Early signs of aging – such as wrinkles, discolorations, acne scars and stretch marks– can be corrected with ResurFX® laser skin resurfacing. As the treated area begins to heal, a layer of new skin appears, restoring a fresh, youthful complexion. The ResurFX® laser treatment also encourages collagen production, filling fine lines and wrinkles while creating a healthier, more vibrant appearance. Optimal results are achieved with four treatments about two weeks apart.
Advantages of ResurFX® (Erbium 1565) Laser Skin Resurfacing
The biggest advantage of ResurFX® laser skin resurfacing over other facial rejuvenation options is the quick, comfortable recovery time. Chemical peels, which use mild acids to diminish aesthetic flaws, involve the removal of skin. In contrast, no skin is removed during ResurFX skin resurfacing. Instead, the laser energy passes through the epidermis, leaving surrounding skin unaffected. This makes recovery much shorter and more comfortable than after a chemical or previous-generation resurfacing lasers. Also, chemical peels only affect the top layer of skin and not the pathology of wrinkles, acne scars and melasma that lasers can target.
ResurFX deeply penetrates the epidermis and dermis and places a half million laser spots that visibly reduce the appearance of stubborn stretch marks with multiple treatments usually performed every four to six weeks. ResurFX also builds collagen and helps the overall texture of the treated areas. ResurFX is a non-ablative laser, and it does not change skin color and is safe for darker skin tones unlike some traditional CO2 lasers.
Recovery from ResurFX®
After ResurFX laser skin resurfacing, patients generally have minimal down time with redness and swelling, and patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. Due to the precise nature of ResurFX® treatments, recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. Redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to mild sunburn may develop, but these effects typically subside in just a few days. Sun exposure before and after treatment should be avoided and SPF 50+ should be worn daily.
The Lumenis Non Ablative Solution
The ResurFX™ laser is the only true fractional non- ablative technology. Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFX™ only needs one pass to be effective, saving time and protecting the patient’s skin. ResurFX™ uses a 1565nm fiber laser and an advanced scanner, which enables the user to choose from more than 600 combinations of shape, size and density options, for optimal treatment results. The ResurFX™ has state-of-the-art CoolScan™ scanner for non-sequential scanning. The CoolScan™ scanner uses a proprietary algorithm that controls the placement of each fractional spot. This protects the tissue from heat accumulation and overheating. Moreover, the ResurFX™ handpiece is equipped with continuous contact cooling to increase patient comfort during treatment.
