How ResurFX™ Works

Aesthetician using ResurFX on a patientResurFX™ is an advanced 1565nm fiber laser system for True fractional non-ablative skin resurfacing. This treatment works by penetrating a fraction of the skin via tiny dots of laser, stimulating the development of collagen and fibers under the skin. The only true fractional non-ablative technology with “state-of-the-art” CoolScan scanner for customizable treatments. Each scan delivers homogeneous and safe energy with up to 20% coverage in one pass. ResurFX is the only laser with continuous contact cooling, for safe and comfortable treatments.

Accordingly, it rejuvenates the skin, making it appear firmer and more even, imparting a smooth, radiant, and youthful appearance. A series of treatments, typically three to five, ensures optimal results.

One of the biggest benefits of it is that you can get an improved skin texture and tone with minimal recovery time. The ResurFX laser works gradually, providing subtle improvements with each subsequent session.

Conditions ResurFX Can Treat

Some common skin pathologies that can be treated using the ResurFX laser are discussed below:

Acne Spots and Scars

Ablative and non-ablative laser therapies are effective in reducing acne scars. According to a 2020 study, multimodal treatment utilizing lasers is potent in treating moderate to severe acne.

The 1565 nm non-ablative fractional laser (NAFL) effectively treats acne when combined with other therapies. Studies show that triple therapy involving pricking blood therapy (PBT), isotretinoin, and ResurFX laser therapy effectively reduces pore size in acne patients.

Another study investigated the combination of fractional radiofrequency micro-needling and ResurFX laser. It concluded that the therapies significantly improved acne scars.

Stretch Marks 

Striae distensae is a dermatological condition characterized by dermal scarring, commonly known as stretch marks. Laser treatments (picosecond fractional and glass laser) and non-ablative 1565 nm laser are efficacious in improving stretch marks.

According to a report, ResurFX laser enhanced the following aspects in the striae distensae patients:  

  • Textural appearance
  • Pigmentation
  • Volume

Facial Wrinkles

The appearance of facial wrinkles marks the aging of the skin. There are very few treatment modalities that are effective in reducing facial wrinkles. Non-surgical interventions are hardly effective for reducing facial wrinkles. 

Periorbital wrinkling is a major concern for many individuals. Two effective treatment strategies for periorbital wrinkling include 1565nm ResurFX and thermo-mechanical fractional injury (TMFI) therapy. A randomized study concluded that TMFI and ResurFX are safe and effective treatment modalities for eye skin wrinkles.

The non-interventional treatment is also used to lighten fine lines.

Surgery Scars

Fractional non-ablative lasers have shown promising results in treating deliberate self-harm scars. According to a study, the procedure effectively lightens the scars but does not resolve them. Patients are stunned at the more socially acceptable appearance of the non-invasive treatment.

This type of laser therapy can also effectively manage surgical scars. It is also linked to improvements in scar vascularity and pliability. The improvement in surgical scar height and pigmentation is commendable. 

Skin Discoloration and Hyperpigmentation

Laser technology can be useful in lowering the extent of skin discolorations. One of the most common skin discoloration conditions is periorbital pigmentation. Looks-conscious individuals can eliminate the dark circles around their eyes using laser treatment.

Research suggests that ResurFX laser treatment significantly improves skin pigmentation and appearance.

Loose and Baggy Skin

1565nm non-ablative fractional laser (NAFL) devices such as ResurFX carry great potential in halting skin aging. Thus, it is becoming a part of the skin rejuvenation treatment plan.

Baggy skin under the eyelids, i.e., baggy lower eyelids, can disrupt the esthetic profile of a person. 

A 2021 study concluded that microneedle fractional radiofrequency and non-ablative fractional laser therapies effectively improve skin elasticity and orbital fat prolapse.

The combination of NAFL and intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy is safe and effective in rejuvenating the skin.


The following are some frequently asked questions related to ResurFX and their respective answers:

How does it work?

The ResurFX™ fractional laser is a state-of-the-art, non-ablative, skin resurfacing technology. ResurFX™ lasers stimulate 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. The technology enables your physician to achieve excellent clinical results over a sequence of treatments while keeping your comfort maximal and downtime minimal.

To ensure utmost comfort, your physician should typically apply a topical numbing cream before treatment and/or use air cooling during treatment. Depending on your specific concern, you can expect the session to last 15-30 minutes. You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable.

What should I expect and when will I see results?

The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment works with your skin to stimulate deep collagen regeneration over a sequence of treatments. Typically, about 3 sessions are needed to have the most visible improvement in skin texture. But, already after the first treatment, you may notice changes in the pore’s dimensions. Typically, results are achieved after 3-5 sessions in 4-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment

What can I expect during the procedure?

Before starting the treatment, your clinician will thoroughly cleanse the skin and apply a topical anesthetic on the targeted area. They might even use an air-cooling device on the affected area for minimal discomfort. 

The treatment will last about 20–30 minutes but may vary depending on the severity and number of skin areas treated. 

What can I expect after treatment?

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling, depending on your customized treatment settings. The swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and the redness as quickly as the next day or over the next few days. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day. Typically your physician should advise you to stay out of direct sunlight for a few days following the treatment and to apply sunscreen.

How long do ResurFX results last?

The duration of results depends on several factors, such as the extent of the condition (mild, moderate, severe), skin tone, and the number of ResurFX sessions. Once you have completed the required number of sessions, the results of ResurFX can last for a couple of years.

Is Fraxel the same as ResurFX?

Both Fraxel and ResurFX belong to the same category of lasers, i.e., non-ablative lasers. The results of ResurFX and Fraxel restore lasers are similar. 

However, the wavelength for the ResurFX laser is 1565nm while that for Fraxel is 1560nm. A noticeable difference between the both is that Fraxel needs eight passes for the same surface covered with one pass of ResurFX.

Does ResurFX laser hurt?

As a non-ablative procedure, the pain induced by the ResurFX laser is negligible and easily tolerable by most people. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin before the start of the treatment for maximum comfort. It does not cause much discomfort as the procedure is gentle and fast. However, you might experience a mild burning sensation following the treatment, which should subside within a couple of days.

Is ResurFX laser permanent?

The results of a ResurFX treatment can last for a significantly long period (about five years) but are not permanent. To ensure the longevity of the results, you will need to take good care of the skin post-procedure. 

Following a good skincare routine, staying hydrated, and protecting the skin against the sun by applying SPF can be fruitful steps.

Is it right for me?

Lumenis® energy-based treatments are not suitable for everyone and carry some risks. ResurFX™ is not suitable when you have active infections, viral, fungal or bacterial diseases, inflammatory skin conditions or skin cancer. Risks may include: redness, swelling, scarring, or a change of pigmentation. Be sure to consult with your treatment provider before choosing this treatment.
