One of the newest and most effective skincare treatments Dr. Quintana offers her patients is laser skin resurfacing using the ResurFX system. It’s the only, truly non-ablative fractional laser treatment and is a safe and comfortable option for successfully treating skin concerns on the face and body.
How does it work?
- The ResurFX laser prioritizes your comfort as much as effectiveness. It’s a non-ablative laser which stimulates your skin to develop new collagen without harming any tissue. As new collagen is produced, your skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful.
- ResurFX is also a fractional laser, meaning the laser light that is delivered to your skin is divided into tiny dots.
- Unlike other fractional devices, ResurFX requires just one pass over your skin to produce results, reducing treatment time. The device also allows for customizable treatments; the laser shape, size, density, and energy strength are designed to fit your precise needs.
What conditions does the ResurFX laser treat?
ResurFX resurfacing treatments can improve:
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Acne or injury scars
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose skin
- Stretch marks
What happens during treatment?
During a ResurFX laser skin rejuvenation treatment, we can begin with a topical anesthetic. However, due to the non-ablative nature of the laser, most patients find treatments extremely comfortable. The FDA-approved system includes temperature-monitoring CoolScan™ technology to ensure your skin stays protected. Treatments take approximately 30 minutes, depending on the size of the targeted area. Multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart produce the best results.
What results can I expect?
You can return to your everyday activities immediately after a ResurFX treatment. Mild redness, tingling, or swelling may be present for up to a week, but these should fade quickly and can be easily concealed by makeup. It’s important for you to use sunscreen to properly protect your skin after treatment.
