If you are looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, or stretch-marks but don’t want surgery, ResurFX™ laser skin resurfacing is an affordable and viable option available at our Fort Worth office. Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector, Jennifer Geyer is experienced in administering non-surgical treatments to improve the quality of your skin and can offer you a customized ResurFX™ treatment plan to ensure your specific needs are met. ResurFX™ skin resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure that uses a non-ablative (non-destructive) laser to resurface problem areas of the skin, providing you a smoother, more youthful complexion.
ResurFX™ uses a fractional laser to deliver varying intensities of energy to the skin. As the energy is directed at an age spot or wrinkle, the laser’s energy triggers new collagen formation by heating the tissues. Given the fractional nature of the laser, it targets a portion of the treatment area to avoid unnecessary collateral heat injury. Because it is non-ablative, it directs energy beneath the skin’s layers to resolve blemishes and imperfections.
ResurFx™ can treat a variety of skin issues, anomalies, and imperfections on the face, hands, hips, and legs, including:
You don’t need to feel insecure about the signs of aging or pregnancy with the help of laser skin resurfacing.
Skin resurfacing with ResurFX™ can be performed during an office visit at our Fort Worth location, and, depending on the areas of concern, can be completed in 30-60 minutes. After consulting with Jennifer about which areas need to be treated, you will be given eye protection to prevent corneal damage due to laser light scatter, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to the target areas.
Cool air will be emitted over the treatment area to minimize overheating of the skin while Jennifer targets problem areas with a hand-held laser device to reduce the appearance of blemishes, wrinkles, or scars. Patients often report a warm sensation during the treatment, but the sensation is not painful.
Recovery is also relatively short, and it is recommended to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen in the days following the ResurFX™ treatment. You can expect to see the results of ResurFX™ laser skin resurfacing within one week. Some patients may experience side effects such as skin swelling, redness, pigmentation changes, and possible skin peeling several days after treatment. It is advisable to follow up with Jennifer after treatment to ensure the efficacy of ResurFX™.
ResurFX™ is an FDA-approved method of eliminating blemishes, softening fine lines, and reducing stretch marks.
