What is it?
The Lumenis® PhotofractionalTM treatment is a complete skin rejuvenation solution, enabling your physician to offer you remarkable results on a range of skin aging concerns such as age and sun spots, fine lines, acne scars, uneven texture and skin tone.
Is it safe?
ResurFx is FDA cleared and is trusted by leading professionals around the world. Lumenis energy- based treatments must be performed by a physician or an authorized provider in your region. Energy based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
How does it work?
The ResurFXTM fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.
To ensure utmost comfort, your physician will apply a topical numbing cream before treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes.You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
What should I expect?
When will I see results? The Lumenis® ResurFx treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments.
Already after the first session, you will begin to notice improvement in skin tone and pigmentation. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines. Optimal results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following the treatment and to apply sun screen.
