How does ResurfX laser work?2021-06-11T15:43:36+00:00

ResurfX is a non-ablative treatment that works by heating up the targeted area to stimulate fibroblast activation. Fibroblasts synthesize collagen which is responsible for the structure and firmness of the skin.

This makes ResurfX an excellent treatment for acne scarring, surgical scars, fine lines & wrinkles, stretch marks, and cellulite.

What should I expect after ResurfX treatment? Is there any downtime?2021-06-11T15:47:49+00:00

Discomfort after treatment is genreally mild. It will feel similar to a bad sunburn. There will be redness immediately after treatment that can last up to 5 days. Swelling the day after treatment is also fairly common and can last up to 2 days.

“Bronzing” will follow in the 2 weeks post-treatment. This is caused by melanin in the top layers of skin being sloughed off. Most patients state if feels similar to dry flaking (like sandpaper) in the 10 days post-treatment.


After Care Instructions2021-06-11T17:12:59+00:00

No matter what type of laser treatment you receive, clients will be counseled heavily to greatly reduce sun exposure. Most treatments will include sunscreen application before you leave the office.

Avoid picking or scratching the treated skin.

Sleep elevated to avoid additional swelling

Use of a gentle serum or hyaluronic acid is recommended to enhance the results and quicken healing time.
