ResurFX in Austin
The ResurFX™ fractional laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative, skin resurfacing technology. ResurFX™ fractional laser stimulates the production of new collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin. Stimulating new collagen production is the key to a more radiant, youthful looking skin.
The ResurFX™ technology enables your provider to achieve excellent clinical results over a sequence of treatments while keeping your comfort maximal and downtime minimal.
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 after treatment?
Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume daily activities the very same day. Typically your provider should advise to stay out of direct sun for a few days following treatment and to wear sunscreen daily.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines. But, already after the first treatment, you will notice changes in pores dimensions. Optimal results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-5 weeks intervals. However, you will continue to see improvements for up to six months following a treatment.
What results can I expect to see?
The results from the ResurFX® sessions depend on the extent of the treatment area; but after completing the amount of sessions suggested by your provider you will notice visible improvement in the skin texture and fine lines as well as changes in pore dimensions. We’re happy to be able to offer you remarkable results for younger, healthier, glowing skin!

How does ResurFX work?
The ResurFX laser by Lumenis®, one of the world’s leading makers of medical devices, is a skin resurfacing option that prioritizes patient comfort just as much as effectiveness. It is a non-ablative laser which means it stimulates the skin to develop collagen without harming or ablating any skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks tighter, more even, and more youthful. ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered to the skin in tiny dots and to only a fraction of the skin. The ResurFX requires only one pass over the skin to produce effective results, reducing treatment time. Finally, since it is a non-ablative, fractional laser, the recovery time after the procedure is minimized.
