ResurFX for African-American Skin

ResurFX is a non-ablative laser system that does not damage surrounding tissue and actually works to protect the skin from overheating. I have used this laser on ALL skin colors without any adverse effects. Patients with darker skin need to visit their dermatology specialist in order to determine which laser treatment will be the safest and most effective for their skin type. I recommend visiting a board certified dermatologist and laser expert to determine the best course of treatment for you.
