ResurFX™ by Lumenis®
Now at Radiance Skin Therapy
This FDA-approved device uses non-ablative fractional technology to improve fine lines, scarring, skin texture, skin tone, stretch marks, and promote collagen growth. ResurFX™ offers results with a comfortable treatment and minimal downtime.
What is ResurFX™ or “Non-ablative Laser Resurfacing”?
The ResurFX™ laser is the only true fractional non-ablative technology. Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFX™ only needs one pass to be effective, saving time and protecting the patient’s skin. Non-ablative laser resurfacing allows us to offer a controlled skin resurfacing treatment by leaving the Epidermis skin layer intact. Ablative laser, such as CO2, “ablates” the epidermis & dermis layers which require more downtime and do have added risk.
What is PhotoFractional?
This is a very popular combination of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), also known as “Photo”facial and ResurFX™, also called “fractional”. Together they are a PhotoFabulous™ combination providing improvements with pores, texture, sun damage, brown spots, redness, vascularity, fine lines & more! This is a staff & client favorite!

FAQs About ResurFX™
What can I expect during the treatment?
Prior to the ResurFX™ treatment, we can apply a topical anesthetic offering a very comfortable experience. Due to the non-ablative nature of the treatment, most patients find these treatments extremely comfortable. Treatments can take 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.
What can I expect after the treatment?
After ResurFX™ patients typically have minimal downtime. For a typical treatment, skin is minimally swollen for 1 to 2 days, and mildly red for 3-5 days. Patients do not peel after but the skin may feel slightly rough for about 1-2 weeks. Patients can resume mineral makeup application the day after. Sun exposure before and after the procedure should be avoided. A physical sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be worn the days after the procedure and for long-term protection.
How many treatments are recommended with ResurFX™
ResurFX™ is often completed as a series of treatments. Typically, 4-6 treatments spaced a month apart is recommended. This will vary depending on the overall skin condition.
