ResurFX Removes Fine Lines and Rejuvenates

ResurFX is an excellent rejuvenating solution for busy people because it requires little to no downtime. A series of treatments can remove fine lines and will also rejuvenate the skin, stimulating the production of new elastin and collagen. Your final results will be visible after about three months.

ResurFX is a great no-downtime procedure, needs repeated for lines.

ResurFX is a great procedure and the differences between people being happy or not happy have everything to do with their education on the procedure and it's intended use.  ResurFX  can be beneficial for fine lines, but not as beneficial as fractionated ablative CO2 resurfacing.  The advantage of ResurFX is the minimal to zero downtime, which allows patients with an active lifestyle to achieve real gains in texture and skin tone.  

I tell patients they should consider ResurFX as a part of their long-term anti-aging strategy more than a treatment. That being said, patients will get immediate benefits including skin tone improvement and these treatments have synergy when used after IPL for more dramatic results.

ResurFX can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles

Yes, the ResurFX treatment will help improve fine lines and wrinkles.  Depending on the area, the procedure can take from 10 - 30 minutes. I recommend repeating the procedure every 4-6 weeks to give time for your skin to heal. You should start to see improvement after 2-3 treatments where you will notice the fines lines and wrinkles becoming softer. Throughout the treatments there also skin care products that we recommend for fine lines and wrinkles that can enhance the effect of the ResurFX treatments.

ResurFx for fine lines on the forehead and around the mouth

ResurFx is a non-ablative fractionaed laser (NAFL).  NAFL target water within collagen bundles in the skin in order to created fine channels of heat. These heat columns leads to increased collagen production. Overtime this results in a decrease in the appearance of fine lines, scars, pores, and stretch marks.

A series of 4-6 monthly treatments, based on the severity of your fine lines, will most likely be recommended by your physician. If your fine lines are severe, your physician may recommend Botox to your forehead and/or around the lips 10-14 days before your ResurFx procedure. This can help to soften these muscles and allow for a smoother surface for collagen production. This type of combination therapy can be very beneficial to optimize a patients results.

ResurFx for fine lines

Yes.  ResurFx is design to reduce fine lines on the skin.  Furthermore, when done properly the treatment is painless with no downtime.  As with any laser treatment, not only the machine has to be well designed and built, a well-trained experienced provider is necessary to achieve optimal and safe outcome.

Resurfx for Fine lines

The Resurfx treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines. But, already after the first treatment, you will notice changes in pores dimensions. Optimal results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 weeks intervals. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.

Best of Luck!
