If you are looking for ways to improve the appearance of your skin and look more youthful, the ResurFX treatment is an excellent choice. At The Medical Eye Center, Dr. Slentz has the experience and expertise to help you get the skin of your dreams.

What is ResurFX?

ResurFX is a fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment that can improve the texture and appearance of your skin. This non-ablative treatment can improve many different skin imperfections, from fine lines or wrinkles to stretch marks and acne scars, without damaging your skin. 

Thanks to the advanced technology of the ResurFX laser, you are able to receive visible results with minor downtime and no surgery necessary. 

Here are some skin imperfections that ResurFX can help treat:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Stretch marks
  • Scars
  • Loose skin
  • Age spots

Ease of recovery is one of the significant benefits of having ResurFX treatments compared to other laser treatments available on the market. To achieve your desired result, you may need to have multiple treatments. 

At your consultation, your oculofacial surgeon will be able to estimate the number of treatments necessary to accomplish your skin goals. 

How Does ResurFX Work?

This safe and effective treatment uses a laser to promote the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This process can improve the appearance and texture of your skin. 

ResurFX is a skin resurfacing treatment. When using the ResurFX laser, your eye doctor is applying heat to the deeper layers of your skin.

This heat stimulates your skin cells and allows them to produce more proteins that create a youthful look and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, among many other things. The ResurFX treatment is FDA-approved and has produced excellent results in many people. 

Benefits of ResurFX Treatment

Another benefit to the ResurFX treatment is that it is relatively short, only lasting about thirty to forty minutes to complete. Recovery from the ResurFX treatment is also minimal and quick.

ResurFX treatment results in less downtime, redness, and recovery time than an ablative laser like the CO2 laser, which has several days of peeling, swelling, and crusting as part of the recovery period. With ResurFX, you can get the results you want in several treatments without ablating skin cells and have a shorter recovery.

Protecting Your Skin After Getting ResurFX

You may notice that the treatment area feels sunburned for a few days after the procedure. It is also essential to ensure that you protect your skin from the sun by using sunscreen for a period of time after treatment.

Although wearing sunscreen is always important, after ResurFX treatments, your skin can be especially sensitive to the sun. Be sure to also keep your skin moisturized with a lotion or moisturizer recommended by your eye doctor.

How Can I Get ResurFX?
