What Should I Expect?
Laser resurfacing treatments work with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are need to have visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines. But, already after the first treatment, you will notice changes in pore dimensions. Optimal results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 week intervals. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will diminish after a few hours, and the redness as as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few weeks following the treatment, and you should always apply sun screen.
How Does It Work?
The ResurFX fractional laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative, skin resurfacing technology. ResurFX fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin. The ResurFX technology enables your physician to achieve excellent clinical results over a sequence of treatments while keeping your comfort maximal and downtime minimal.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
