Fractional Non-Ablative Laser Treatments – “Fraxel”

The ResurFX laser is a skin resurfacing treatment maximizing patient comfort and  effectiveness.  ResurFX offers results with minimal downtime during a nearly pain-free procedure. Fractionated, non ablative laser resurfacing is sometimes referred to by the brand name Fraxel®. ResurFX stimulates the skin to develop its own collagen without harming or ablating the skin. As collagen increases, the skin looks more even, tighter, more youthful. ResurFX is a more efficient treatment than traditional fractional lasers because it requires only one pass over the skin to produce results which reduces treatment and recovery time.

Dr. Michael Eidelman and Dr. Brian Ginsberg have vast experience helping patients achieve better skin with ResurFX.

What does the ResurFX treat?

  • Acne Scars
  • Age spots or sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation / discoloration
  • Loose Skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone

What might I expect during my ResurFX treatment?

Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied to the area which greatly increases comfort. Treatments can take 20 minutes or more, depending on the size of the targeted area.

What can I expect after my ResurFX treatment?

Patients can return to their normal activities the day after the procedure. Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. Redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to a mild sunburn may develop, but these typically subside in a few days. Sun exposure 1 month before and 1 month after treatment should be avoided and a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher should be worn daily in the days after the procedure.

How many treatments are needed?

ResurFX is completed as a series of treatments. More than 1 treatment will produce more  significant results. Typically, 3-4 treatments 1 month apart are necessary to obtain the optimal results. This can vary patient-to-patient.
