What Does Lumenis M22 ResurFX Laser Treatment Do?

It may be better to answer what it doesn’t do. The Lumenis M22 ResurFX is the newest non-ablative, fractional laser technology on the market. The term “non-ablative” means that it does not destroy or ablate your skin cells. Instead, the ResurFX laser stimulates your skin and encourages collagen growth without additional harm.

How Is Lumenis M22 ResurFX Different from Other Lasers?

Many laser treatments, while effective, result in swelling, peeling, or crusting after the procedure. In addition to stimulating collagen growth without ablating your skin cells, the Lumenis M22 ResurFX provides excellent results with minimal recovery time.

The Lumenis M22 ResurFX is also a fractional laser, which means the laser is delivered in tiny dots on just a fraction of your skin. The ResurFX laser also needs only one pass to be effective, saving you time and protecting your skin even further.

What Conditions Does Lumenis M22 ResurFX Treat?

Forefront Dermatology uses this state-of-the-art technology to treat a variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Hyperpigmentation or discoloration
  • Acne or surgery scars
  • Loose skin

Does the ResurFX laser hurt?

No, your Forefront dermatologist will numb your skin with medication (usually a topical anesthetic). Because the ResurFX laser is non-ablative, most patients say their treatments are extremely comfortable.

If you opt to treat your entire face, you might be sedated. Our expert team will ensure that you feel safe and comfortable during the procedure.

How Does Lumenis M22 ResurFX Treatment Work?

ResurFX is a highly advanced laser, enabling you to choose from more than 600 combinations of shape, size, and density. Using fractional spots, the device protects your skin from overheating while stimulating collagen production. As collagen increases, your skin begins looking tighter and more youthful.

How Long Does Lumenis M22 ResurFX Laser Non-Surgical Treatment Take?

Treatments take about 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.

What Are Typical Lumenis M22 ResurFX Laser Treatment Results?

Again, your recovery time should be minimal and relatively comfortable. Your skin might be red, swollen, or inflamed for a day or two (similar to a mild sunburn), but you can usually resume your daily activities and skin routine right away.

The results after non-ablative laser resurfacing are gradual. Because ResurFX is a limited downtime procedure, you will likely need multiple treatments to begin seeing meaningful results. You’re more likely to notice improvements in your skin texture and pigment than in wrinkles at first.

In most cases, at least 3-4 treatments over one month can help you attain optimum results.

What About Lumenis M22 ResurFX Laser Aftercare?

Very little aftercare is required, but be sure to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher in the days following the procedure. New sun damage can reverse your results.
