I had my Resurfx performed in combination with an IPL, which I reviewed separately. My Resurfx was done immediately after my IPL, and took approximately 15 minutes, tops. I had already been given numbing cream prior to the IPL, so my face was still numb. Just as with the IPL, I had virtually no discomfort. I could feel it, but it truly did not hurt. After this was completed, an Rx cream was applied to help with redness, and then sunscreen was applied. One of the staff members actually also applied some make up for me, and then I went off to work. My skin was a bit warm, as expected, but only for a few hours. No one seemed aware that I had anything done, and I did not have any "down time". I had some minor swelling the next day, but nothing that anyone else noticed. I wore my usual makeup on day 2. As expected, my skin felt a little rough for a few days, but it that appears to be going away. My skin looks great, and many of my fine lines, especially in the crow's feet section, appear to be gone or greatly diminished. I am thrilled with the results and plan on having this treatment again when my budget permits. I am also looking into Ultherapy for my neck and eyelids.

Update on Resurfx

I updated both this and my IPL experience, since I had them in tandem. Since having this procedure, I can continue to see results, and in fact have people commenting on how good my skin looks. It should be noted that I was born with very ruddy fair skin, with bigger pores, so for people to complement my skin out of the blue is nothing short of a miracle. Note that I had this procedure in tandem with IPL, so results were a combined effect. Can't wait to do this again.

This was my 5th or 6th visit to Dr. Palm and team, and again, it was great. The procedure went smoothly as usual, and everyone here is nice, down to earth, and knowledgable. They seem to really like what they do. I really trust this team, as they have not steered me wrong. I also appreciate that they are mindful of my budget, and never try to push anything on me, and are great about allowing me to stretch out my visits to fit my budget. The Freshen Up Friday deals are also a great way to save money on the most popular treatments.
