Lumenis® Photofractional Laser Resurfacing
The unique Lumenis® Photofractional energy-based technology includes two solutions: IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing.
Lumenis® IPL technology removes both unwanted pigmentation and blood vessels from the skin while the ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.
What are the benefits of Lumenis® Photofractional?
The Lumenis® Photofractional treatment is a complete skin rejuvenation solution – in which both skin pigmentation and texture can be treated in the same session. The treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. After the first session, you may begin to notice improvement in skin tone and pigmentation.
What is a treatment like?
To ensure utmost comfort, your provider should apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.
What can I expect to look like immediately after treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel warm and will be similar in appearance to a deep sunburn. During the following days you will follow a gentle washing and moisturizing regimen and avoid direct exposure to sunlight. As your skin heals, it will begin to flake and improvements in wrinkles and fine lines will be noticeable. You can likely resume normal activities such as working out within in a week of treatment. Some patients experience minimal redness or mild swelling of the treated areas that diminishes within a few days.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-5 sessions in 2-6 week intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to 6 months following treatment.
What results can I expect to see?
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. After the first treatment, you may already notice changes in the dimensions of your pores. Typically, results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 week intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment.
The goal is to obtain more youthful-looking skin, improve skin tone, reduce pore size, smooth fine lines and wrinkles and soften the texture of your skin. It is important to follow the schedule your provider suggests in order to have the best results.
Your Photofractional will be performed in Devenir Aesthetics medical facility located in Austin, TX.
Does it hurt?
Do I have to do more than one treatment?
A client does not have to do more than one treatment and is not locked into any type of treatment plan if they decide not to proceed with further treatments, but doing multiple sessions will produce a more desirable outcome.
