The ResurFX Fractional Laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers in the deep layers of the skin, providing ideal skin regeneration treatments.
Dr. Campos, our expert collaborator on skin and aging issues, tells us everything you need to know about the technology.
What are the benefits?
The ResurFX laser stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, producing firming results and reducing sagging skin. It also improves the pigmentation, volume and appearance of scars and stretch marks. It does not harm the tissue, but stimulates the tissue deeply through the complex and smooth thin line system, penetrating the skin for healing and regeneration.
It can be applied to any part of the body without surgery, invasive treatments or contraindications. It can be done at any time of the year, skin type, age, and has no downtime as it requires no downtime. As part of your daily skin care routine, you don’t need any special care beyond basic skin care and applying sunscreen.
Is it painful?
The built-in vibration function also ensures maximum comfort and eliminates pain during the procedure, being the only one that cools while warming the skin. When the tip of the device touches your skin, you’ll feel a slight heat sensation, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort. Although the treatment is usually painless, we recommend that an anesthetic ointment be applied 30 minutes before the treatment for the patient’s comfort.

When can we see the results?
For a few days after treatment, the skin will be red and slightly swollen. We will see the results after a week of treatment, how long they last depends more or less on post-treatment care and sun exposure of the patient.
Is there any cost?
The average cost per session varies depending on the part of the body to be treated. Smaller areas can range from $400 to $500, and larger areas, such as body treatments, can cost as much as $800 or $1,000 per session. Of course, you have to keep in mind that with this type of surgery, only one or two sessions are needed for the best long-term results.
One last piece of advice…
Most patients require three to four sessions of ResurFX per year, depending on each individual’s skin condition. The time between one course of treatment and the next must be one month, so it is important that you obtain professional advice in advance to determine the number of courses that suit your needs. Once treatment has started, you must continue caring for your skin. Its hydration and sun protection are essential.
