I recently started using the ResurFX in my practice. I had a treatment performed on myself with topical anesthetic cream (numbing cream). The procedure felt like superficial needle pricks - very well tolerated. Afterwards mild burning sensation lasting 30 minutes.
The ResurFX laser treatment is not very painful. Patients may experience some temporary discomfort. The ResurFX handheld device has built-in contact cooling in order to ensure the patient is comfortable during the treatment. We also used cold air cooling and for some patients topical anesthetic creams to limit the discomfort.
