Doris Day MD Treatment ResurFX

What To Expect

How it works

ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional laser, meaning it can emit powerful light energy without visibly damaging the outer layer of skin. The fact that it is a fractional device means that it emits energy in a dotted pattern that leaves some skin undamaged, resulting in less discomfort and downtime. The laser is applied to create controlled thermal damage and micro-injuries. As these micro-injuries heal, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in resilient, glowing skin.

How we do it

Dr. Day will consult with patients interested in resurfacing to treat a variety of skin issues with ResurFX. Patients receiving this treatment will come in for topical numbing prior to treatment, alleviating any discomfort during the actual treatment. After treatment, Dr. Day will recommend specific post-care products to minimize healing time and maximize results.

Side effects

ResurFX is a fractional, non-ablative treatment. As a result, patients receiving this treatment do not have to prepare for the more extensive and uncomfortable healing time associated with other resurfacing treatments. The patient will experience initial redness immediately after treatment, which will go down a few hours post treatment and then redness might be prominent for a few days post-treatment.

Time to full effect

Dr. Day may recommend a treatment series if you are looking to address issues such as discoloration, scars, fine lines, or even just to achieve a refreshed, beautiful glow.
