Is Skin Resurfacing With ResurFX Laser Safe?

September 29, 2017

Collagen, an important structural protein found in our bodies, is what keeps our skin looking fresh. As we get older, collagen production slows down and our skin can wrinkle and lose its elasticity. Furthermore, our skin is susceptible to the effects of pollution and acne no matter how old we are. Brown spots, sun damage and scarring are all unfortunate side-effects of the elements. With ResurFX fraction laser skin resurfacing you can erase the signs of aging, damage, and scarring and come away with beautiful skin when you’re done.

What is skin resurfacing?

With ResurFX fraction laser skin resurfacing, your skin will be restored. Skin resurfacing is done to improve the appearance of sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, treat scarring caused by acne, and diminish vertical lip lines around the mouth and crow’s feet around the eyes. Age spots can also be treated with skin resurfacing because the technology used can greatly lessen their appearance. In addition to treating the issues mentioned, skin resurfacing boosts collagen production to enhance new cell production and create healthier, more radiant looking skin.

Is this technology safe?

Yes! ResureFX fraction laser skin resurfacing is completely safe. Not only it is FDA and Health Canada approved, the lasers used in this resurfacing procedure are so refined that they only target the areas that require treatment. The lasers used in ResurFX treatments are non-ablative which means they heat up the targeted cells and tissues without harming the rest of the skin. Moreover, ResurFX requires one pass with the laser to correct skin issues, unlike other treatments that need multiple passes to get results. This type of fractional laser skin resurfacing is an improved version of prior technology used to treat fine lines and wrinkles and aid in the promotion of collagen growth.

What is the treatment like?

ResurFX fraction laser skin resurfacing takes approximately 15-30 minutes to perform. You will be given a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment to ensure your comfort. Cool air will be used during the treatment to help you tolerate the heat of the lasers, but it is a relatively painless procedure in general. Afterwards, your skin will be swollen and red. However, these side-effects resolve themselves quickly and you can return to your normal activities within a day. Many people prefer to have this treatment done on a Friday afternoon so that they can return to work fresh-faced on Monday. You can also wear makeup the day after your treatment and apply a topical cream to keep your skin hydrated if necessary. (Do not apply anything to the skin that your aesthetician does not clear.) Also, you will need to wear sunscreen after your procedure to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays. Depending on the state of your skin, you may require 4-6 sessions for optimal results.
