Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Hurt?

February 23, 2017

Let’s face it: skin creams and lotions can only go so far in revealing your best skin ever.  When you’re dealing with uneven skin tone, facial scarring, hyperpigmentation, and other aging symptoms, you’re probably going to need a little extra help.

That’s where laser skin resurfacing comes into play.  Traditionally, this cosmetic procedure is designed to remove the top layer of the dermis, where most dead skin cells are trapped.  By removing the top layer, laser skin resurfacing can reveal the younger, brighter-looking skin that’s trapped underneath.

However, new generations of laser skin resurfacing combine the above effects with collagen growth stimulation, which helps promote long-term results.  One laser that produces these excellent results is the ResurFX Laser – and it’s now available at Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. & Aesthetic Center!

What makes ResurFX so special is that it works to remove the upper layer of the dermis while heating deeper layers of the skin.  By combining these two effects, the ResurFX Laser creates almost-immediate results while encouraging long-term collagen production.

ResurFX takes about 20 minutes to administer.  Since ResurFX is using laser heat energy to penetrate multiple layers of the dermis, some patients may feel an uncomfortable heat sensation.  To help manage this discomfort, the ResurFX handle is combined with a cooling applicator to blow cool air on heated skin.

Immediately after the procedure, patients will typically experience flushed, red skin. However, there’s no pain associated with the recovery process, so patients can continue with their normal routines (while wearing extra sun protection, of course!).
