Does the ResurFX treatment hurt?

Doctor Answers 2

ResurFX treatment well tolerated

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.

ResurFX Treatment is Not Very Painful

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.
