Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a proven way to help reduce wrinkles, remove age spots, soften acne scars as well as tighten skin and balance skin tone.
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ is a fractional skin rejuvenation laser that penetrates the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen over a series of treatments. The ResurFX™ laser places small channels of laser energy into the deepest layers of the skin stimulating new collagen growth and the reduction in the appearance of scars, wrinkles and stretch marks, resulting in tight and more youthful appearing skin.
WHAT CAN RESURFX™ BE USED TO TREAT?
The ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing system can address a wide range of skin issues including:
- Wrinkles/Fine lines
- Skin Laxity or loose skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Sunspots and age spots
- Acne Scarring
HOW DOES RESURFX™ WORK ON THE SKIN?
The ResurFX™ laser places small channels of energy into the deepest layers of the skin. The heat formed by the laser stimulates new collagen growth in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. The development of new collagen will reduce the appearance of scarring, tighten the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles leading to a more youthful appearance.
The ResurFX™ laser can selective heat and eliminate pigment in the top layer of the skin reducing the appearance of age spots, blemishes and uneven skin tone.
