The ResurFX laser works gently over time, delivering subtle improvements with each treatment.

Candidates for ResurFX Laser Treatments

This state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared skin resurfacing procedure may safely be used on the face and body to treat a variety of skin concerns, which include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scars from acne and surgery
  • Stretch marks or striae
  • Rough or uneven skin texture
  • Lax skin
  • Sun spots, age spots, and uneven skin tone

Adults who are looking for natural results and are willing to invest time treating their skin are ideal candidates for this procedure. Other skin rejuvenation options include IPL photorejuvenation andCO2 laser skin resurfacing.

How It Works

The ResurFX laser delivers laser energy into the skin’s deeper layers without harming its surface. Instead of using a solid beam like more aggressive lasers, this fractional laser delivers tiny, evenly spaced dots of laser energy. This technique ensures pinpoint accuracy and reduces healing time. The laser energy rejuvenates the skin from within by stimulating the production of new collagen.

What to Expect

At Q the Medical Spa, all laser treatments are administered by nurses for optimal safety and results. Although most patients find these treatments to be comfortable, we can apply a light topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort. To protect your eyes from the laser’s bright light, your nurse will place special glasses over your eyes. We then adjust the laser’s settings to tailor the treatment to the needs of your skin and then pass the laser handpiece over the skin.

ResurFX treatments require just a single pass; most treatments take about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size and number of areas being treated. ResurFX is equipped with proprietary CoolScan™ technology to monitor the skin temperature and the patented Chill Tip™ to offer an extra level of protection during treatment.

Recovery After ResurFX Laser Treatments

Expect mild redness and swelling in treated areas for a few days. Patients can return to their normal activities the following day. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. It is important to avoid sun exposure before and after treatments; wear a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Once the skin completely healed, be sure to wear SPF 15 or higher every day for long-term protection.

ResurFX Results

Results appear gradually as the skin builds new collagen over time. Most patients begin to see changes within 1 to 2 weeks—with continued improvement for about 3 to 4 months. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 4 treatments, about 1 month apart, although this can vary between individuals and their goals.
