Lumenis® M22™ ResurFX™ Laser Treatment
The Lumenis® M22™ ResurFX™ nonablative laser treats skin damage and tightens skin. Unlike ablative lasers, which remove the top layer of skin and part of the sublayer, nonablative lasers keep the outer layer of skin intact, which promotes faster healing.The ResurFX laser is a good option for patients who prefer a noninvasive treatment that has little downtime.
After ResurFX laser treatment, the body’s natural healing process replaces damaged tissue with new, healthy tissue, resulting in smoother and healthier-looking skin. The ResurFX laser is used for smoothing the skins texture, as well as the following:
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars/scars caused by injury
- Loose skin
- Stretch marks
- Hyperpigmentation/Sun damage
Benefits Of ResurFX Laser Treatment
ResurFX laser treatment is appropriate for most skin types, and is extremely customizable. The laser beam’s shape, size, density and strength can be adjusted to fit each patient’s needs. Additional benefits include the following:
- Minimal treatment time
- Fast recovery
- Uses topical anesthetic to decrease discomfort
- Causes less redness/swelling than more invasive treatments
In addition to keeping skin intact, the ResurFX laser stimulates collagen growth, tightening underlying skin.
The ResurFX Laser Procedure
Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after ResurFX treatments; mild redness, tingling or swelling are usually the only side effects, and they subside within a few days.
