ResurFX® Laser Treatment
Over time our skin can become damaged from acne scars, volume loss, and other textural issues. To help remove unwanted damage to the skin, we use the Lumenis® Stellar M22 Laser which now includes the ResurFX® device. This is the only fractional, true non-ablative laser used for skincare resurfacing. It is ideal for patients who prefer a milder treatment approach with less downtime and no risk of skin infection.

What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser Skin Resurfacing has become a popular treatment used to rejuvenate your skin’s appearance, leaving a healthy glow. There are two types of lasers that can be used. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of your skin (epidermis) and part of your sub-layer (dermis). This type of treatment is invasive, and downtime is required after. Non-Ablative Lasers keep the top layer of your skin intact (epidermis) and tighten the underlying skin. The surface of your skin remains undamaged which allows for faster healing and no downtime. This type of treatment is best for improving skin texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and pigmentation.
How does the ResurFX® work?
The Lumenis® M22 Stellar Laser device includes the ResurFX Skin Resurfacing handpiece. This Fractional Laser stimulates the production of new collagen below your skin’s surface while keeping the outer layer of your skin intact. It uses an advanced scanner technology, CoolScan®, to ensure that energy delivery is precise and homogenous. The ResurFX® is equipped with continuous contact cooling, to increase comfort during treatment and allows for faster healing and minimal downtime. Another feature of the ResurFX® Laser is the advanced scanner which allows for over 600 customizable combinations of shape, size, and density for optimal treatment.
What conditions can the ResurFX® laser treat?
Non-ablative skin resurfacing keeps the skin intact, stimulates collagen growth, and tightens underlying skin. Unlike other fractional technologies, the ResurFX® needs only one pass to be effective, saving time and protecting the patient’s skin.
The ResurFX® laser is best for improving skin texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and pigmentation issues. It can also be used to reduce age spots, surgical scars, loose skin, and stretch marks.
