Despite penetrating deep into the skin, the ResurFX does no damage to the surface of the skin. The laser stimulates collagen and elastin fiber production and the skin’s self-healing properties, both of which can become limited due to aging or the damaging effects of the sun. Furthermore, ResurFX is fully adjustable to your skin and condition for a customized treatment that’s right for you. This protects your skin and reduces the amount of time a treatment session takes.

A wide array of skin problems can be treated with ResurFX, including:

ResurFX vs. Microneedling

Although both can produce beautiful results, ResurFX and microneedling are not the same rejuvenating treatments. While ResurFX targets the underlying dermis with thermal energy, microneedling prompts a healing response by way of tiny micro pin pricks in the skin.

The microneedling device has a round head with a group of tiny needles. The needles are passed over the skin, where they create tiny openings in the tissue – basically microscopic injuries, which cause your skin to produce collagen and elastin.

Can ResurFX Be Combined With Other Treatments?

ResurFX has amazing versatility, as it can be combined with an IPL Photofacial for a state-of-the-art revitalizing Photofractional treatment. It is also perfectly suited to be combined with neuromodulators like Botox and injectable treatments such as dermal fillers for enhanced results.

How Long Does ResurFX Last?

Although you may need more than one treatment session, the results can last about 2 years once the sessions are complete. That timeline can vary by individual. You can promote long-lasting results by eating well, staying hydrated, protecting your skin from the sun, and pursuing other healthy habits.

How Many Treatments are Needed for the Best Results?

It depends on the issues you are looking to correct. Some people get good results after only a single ResurFX treatment. More often, 3-4 treatment sessions are required. ResurFX is non-ablative and minimally invasive, which is why it may require multiple sessions spaced a month apart to get the results you want.

ResurFX Recovery Time

  • Allow 1 week for a full recovery. During this time, your skin may be red, irritated and dry.
  • Don’t wear makeup for 48 hours after treatment
  • Wear sunscreen immediately after treatment and for 3 months following, every day. It’s really important to avoid sun exposure for a few months following treatment
  • Use a gentle, unscented moisturizer as needed
  • Use a cold compress against your skin for discomfort

Why ResurFX Skin Resurfacing is Safe

This procedure is FDA-approved for safety and effectiveness. When performed by an experienced provider, there is a low risk of side effects and complications. It is important to select a practitioner experienced with laser skin resurfacing, like Dr. Levin. An understanding of the technology, your skin, and how the treatment works is essential to your results.
