Our team of expert medical providers are dedicated to providing our patients with the best ResurFX results Austin has to offer.
What is ResurFX®?
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 ResurFX® 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 are the benefits of ResurFX™/DeepFX™?
This procedure allows those with a busy lifestyle to be treated in a single treatment, with noticeable results and minimal downtime. The ResurFX™ is ideal for those wanting an alternative to surgery. The procedure can be combined with an extensive selection of premium cosmetic treatments that complement its results on the face and neck. ResurFX (also known as ActiveFX) and DeepFX™ can be combined to create dual-level results and that treatment is called TotalFX™.
- Both treatments are capable of delivering dramatic outcomes with DeepFX™ creating more pronounced tightening
- DeepFX™ delivers immediate tightening of the skin
- Reduction of fine lines, wrinkles and a subtle softening of deeper wrinkles
- Skin tone is more even, and texture is smoother
- New collagen is formed as a response to the treatment, firming and “plumping” skin tissue
- Treatments help skin revert to a healthier appearance
- ResurFX™ and DeepFX™ laser treatments provide enduring results. With proper protection from UV, the effects can last for years. Early effects are nearly immediate with improved skin tone and appearance. Gradual deep tissue tightening continues over the next 3 to 5 months and most patients notice a continuing improvement
during that time.
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.
This Devenir patient has seen vast improvement with just 2 treatments.
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!

What Is DeepFX™?
DeepFX™ is a micro fractional CO2 laser procedure which is performed in a single treatment session. Downtime is comparatively short – usually a few days to a week. Fractional laser is very unique in that only a percentage of the entire surface is treated.
This makes healing much faster, reduces the risk of infection and maintains normal pigmentation. The laser beam is broken up into thousands of tiny dots which then penetrate the selected area. Small areas of untouched skin, referred to as “bridges” provide active healthy cell generation much more quickly than that of full tissue removal in older resurfacing lasers.
What conditions does ResurFX treat?
- Age spots or sun spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks or striae
- Hyper-pigmentation or discoloration
- Uneven skin tone
- Scars from acne or surgery
- Lax or loose 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.
Do the treatments hurt?
Before the procedure a topical numbing cream is applied, and oral medications are given in order to make the patient relaxed during the procedure. We ask our patients to have a driver to take them home given the sedation during the procedure. We also use a machine that supplies a stream of cold air while treating. After the laser treatment, the patient feels as if they have a bad sunburn for 2-4 hours. Although there may be some swelling over the next few days, very few patients report notable discomfort.
