Tucson Resurfx

Lumenis ResurFX treatment is a fractional skin rejuvenation solution, enabling your provider to offer you remarkable results for younger, glowing and healthier looking skin.

How does Resurfx work?

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.

How can Resurfx help me?

ResurFX is completed as a series of treatments. Because it is a limited downtime procedure, it usually requires multiple treatments for significant and meaningful results. Typically, at least 3-4 treatments about one month apart are necessary to obtain optimum results, although this varies by the individual and their goal.
