What is ResurFX?

ResurFX is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative fractional laser that delivers remarkable skin resurfacing results. The laser energy targets the deepest layers of your skin to stimulate the production of fresh collagen and elastic fibers, which work to refresh your appearance from the inside out.

How Does the Technology Work?

The ResurFX technology works by heating the deepest layers of your skin through tiny dots on the surface, which stimulates collagen production. This process does not harm the surrounding tissue, so there is minimal downtime. As new collagen grows, it reduces the appearance of many surface imperfections and restores youthful-looking skin.

The Benefits

  • Soften scars
  • Improve texture
  • Address uneven skin tone
  • Minimize facial lines and wrinkles

What sets ResurFX apart?

There’s a reason ResurFX is a such a popular treatment among our patients. When compared to other non-ablative fractional lasers, it is:


Your aesthetician can achieve optimal results after just one pass over the skin, which minimizes discomfort

Less Painful

ResurFX is a gentle procedure that is associated with very little (if any) discomfort

More Customizable

The intensity of the ResurFX laser, along with spot size and location, can be customized to meet your aesthetic needs.

Safe for All Skin Colors

This procedure, called a SMAS facelift, is similar to the standard procedure because the skin is never pulled back. Instead, the underlying fat and musculature of the face is addressed for a thorough and natural result.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Your ResurFX treatment will be done in our medical spa. To ensure your comfort, we will apply a topical numbing cream before the procedure begins. As the laser moves over your skin, you may feel a warm or prickly sensation – but you shouldn’t experience any pain. A typical treatment should last approximately 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Immediately after your appointment, you will be free to return home. You may notice some redness or swelling, but these effects typically dissipate within a few days. Most of our clients are comfortable returning to work the very next day. However, it’s important to stay out of the sun and wear SPF as your skin will be more sensitive than usual.

The Results

ResurFX is designed to improve your skin texture, tone and appearance by encouraging your body to produce fresh collagen. Results may be noticed after your first treatment, however optimal results are typically achieved with a series of 3-6 treatments scheduled 3-6 weeks apart. The results will continue to improve over a period of approximately six months as your body completes the collagen regeneration process. This treatment may be done on non-facial skin.
