As we begin to age, the amount of collagen we naturally produce gradually decreases, leading to a loss of volume and laxity in the skin, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging to develop. Additionally, years of damage done to the skin will start to show by discoloration in the development of age and liver spots. Increasing this collagen production helps not only slow down the damage occurring in the skin but also helps to reverse the effects of aging developing in the skin.

What does ResurFX laser do?


The ResurFX laser is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses the laser to gently heat the surface of the skin in a safe and controlled manner. This heating of the skin cells causes micro-wounds to encourage the body’s natural healing process, leading to increased production of collagen and elastin in the skin as new skin cells form. Collagen and elastin are essential in maintaining a healthy complexion, with this type of treatment effectively evening both the tone and texture of the skin, making it a great option for those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scarring, and age spots.

How long do ResurFX results last?


Since the results provided by the ResurFX laser treatments develop due to the increased production of collagen and elastin, they will take several months to fully develop as the skin heals and new, healthier skin cells form but will provide long-lasting results. Most patients can expect to be able to enjoy their ResurFX laser treatment results for around 2 years following the initial treatments, with these results able to be extended a bit longer by following good skin care habits. To prolong the beautiful, anti-aging results that are provided by this laser treatment, patients are encouraged to invest in a good skin care regimen that consists of high-quality products to properly cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin. As well, the results can be further sustained by sufficiently protecting the skin from sun damage whenever possible, either by avoiding direct sunlight or regularly applying sunscreen to the skin before exposing it to direct sunlight.

Does ResurFX tighten skin?


One of the many benefits provided by the ResurFX laser treatments includes efficacy in tightening the skin. By increasing the production of collagen in the skin, the skin becomes more supple and includes more volume, which means that it is firmer and tighter. As more collagen is produced, the skin continues to appear healthier and younger, with the size of pores shrinking, and any sagginess or laxity of the skin effectively reducing as the skin continues to heal from the procedure.

Which is better microneedling or laser resurfacing?


Both micro-needling and laser resurfacing are skin-rejuvenating treatments that provide results by stimulating increased collagen production as a result of micro-wounds in the upper dermal layers of the skin. Microneedling uses several tiny needles to gently puncture the surface of the skin to cause the micro wounds, making it very safe for use on all skin tones, but including a slight risk of minor scarring. Laser skin resurfacing comes with a lower risk of scarring caused by the procedure and is entirely safe for use on patients with lighter skin tones but is not always recommended for patients with darker skin tones. However, ResurFX laser treatments use a newer technology that significantly reduces the risk of discoloration on darker skin tones, making it entirely safe and effective for use on all patients. It is always recommended that patients consult with a skin care specialist to determine which type of treatment will be best suited to treat specific skin concerns and will be the safest and most effective for each skin type.

How many ResurFX treatments do I need?


Although it is common to achieve noticeable results even after just one treatment, many patients will be recommended to complete 3 to 4 initial treatments spaced around one month apart to achieve their final desired results. The number of treatments that are required to obtain the desired, noticeable results will depend on the skin condition and skin type of the patient. To further sustain the beautiful results, patients will often plan for maintenance treatments that only need to be completed once every 1 to 2 years. The skincare specialist will be able to recommend an effective and personalized ResurFX laser maintenance treatment plan.
