Laser Skin Treatment Chicago: ResurFX
Are you the goldilocks of facial rejuvenation? Are dermabrasion treatments to gentle for you but IPL (photo rejuvenation / Intense Pulse Light) is too rough? Do you want a deeper, more penetrating and effective treatment than a chemical peel but you want a shorter downtime and a less invasive treatment than IPL? In that case, you should talk to your dermatologist at Dermatologic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery about ResurFX.
What is ResurFX?
ResurFX is a non-ablative laser treatment for facial skin, which means that it doesn’t destroy the targeted tissue, like ablative lasers do. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means it targets clusters of tiny columns of skin tissue. This means that less of your facial tissue needs to repair itself; so, less downtime after treatments.
How does ResurFX work?
ResurFX heats up the skin tissue, which stimulates the production of collagen in your facial tissue. The collagen naturally helps your skin to look brighter and helps wrinkles and fine lines to disappear.
Is ResurFX painful?
Some patients opt for a topical anesthetic to numb their skin before ResurFX treatments; others do not find it that painful. You can discuss your concerns with your doctor, who will make sure you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment.
How many ResurFX treatments will I need?
While ResurFX is less invasive and requires less downtime than an ablative laser treatment, it will take more treatments to achieve the desired affect, especially if your facial concerns are more extreme than fine lines.
