Lumenis ResurFX™ is the most recent advancement in non-abrasive, fractional laser technology, designed to heal acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, skin discoloration, etc. Non-ablative means that the skin cells are not destroyed while fractional means that just a fraction or proportion of the skin is affected. Unlike the CO2 laser, which may cause peeling, crusting, and possibly swelling for several days following the surgery—ResurFX™ provides excellent results with a short recovery time.
ResurFX™ is a professionally tailored fractional skin resurfacing treatment that visibly improves:
- Stretch Marks
- Pore Size
- Fine Lines and Deep Wrinkles
- Skin Texture and Discoloration
- Age Spots and Sun Damage
- Acne/Surgical Scar Texture and Appearance
- Uneven Skin Tone
How Does It Work?
ResurFX™ is a cutting-edge, non-abrasive skin resurfacing technique. The key to achieving more radiant, youthful-looking skin is stimulating new collagen formation in the skin. Therefore, the fractional laser stimulates the development of new collagen and elastic fibers in the skin’s deeper layers, which results in a more youthful appearance. On top of that, the technology allows customers to achieve remarkable clinical outcomes across a series of treatments while preserving comfort at its highest level and downtime at its lowest.
- Before the treatment, the skin is thoroughly cleansed
- Topical numbing cream may be applied for mild discomfort.
- Patients may experience mild stinging and tingling during the actual treatment.
- Depending on the plan, the session running time may be 15-40 minutes on average.
- The treatment is gentle and comfortable on the skin (NOT painful).
When Will I See Results?
Stellar M22™ ResurFX™ treatment works by stimulating deep collagen production over a series of sessions, resulting in more youthful-looking skin. To see a noticeable change in skin texture and fine wrinkles, it is usually necessary to have roughly 3 sessions done. However, you will notice a difference in the size of your pores as soon as the first treatment is completed. The best effects are seen after 3-5 sessions over 4-5 weeks. You will, however, continue to observe improvements for up to six months after the therapy has been completed.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Depending on your specific treatment settings, you may notice some swelling or redness immediately after treatment. The swelling will subside within a few hours, and the redness may fade as soon as the following day or over a couple of days following the treatment. The majority of patients can return to their normal routines the very next day. However, you should avoid being in the sun for a few weeks and use sunscreen to protect your skin.
Is It Right For Me?
Treatments with Stellar M22™ are not suited for everyone and may be associated with certain drawbacks. Individuals with viral infections, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory issues, or skin cancer SHOULD stay away from ResurFX™. Before deciding on this treatment, check with aestheticians and discuss the possible side effects, including redness, scarring, swelling, or a change in pigmentation.
