ResurFX is a non-surgical and non-ablative laser treatment in Scottsdale that aims to stimulate the production of collagen to resurface the skin. Collagen is responsible for the tight and youthful appearance of the skin. The ResurFX laser stimulates collagen production by creating zones of heat-injury on the surface of the skin. As these zones heal, they do so with increased collagen to even, tighten, and renew damaged skin.
ResurFX laser treatment in Scottsdale, AZ is the ideal treatment for someone seeking to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, surgical scars, hypertrophic (keloid) or atrophic (pitted) acne scars, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, age spots, melasma, sun damage, and more. The procedure is simple and can be performed within a lunch break, and the healing process is manageable and minimal. ResurFX is suitable for both men and women who are looking for a convenient option for skin repair and renewal.
During ResurFX treatment in Scottsdale, a topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area, and the procedure is typically very comfortable and quick, about 30 minutes. The skin may feel red, warm, and sensitive for 3-5 days following the treatment, but can be easily managed with a mild moisturizer, and covered with makeup as soon as the following day. After about a week the treated area will feel tighter, smoother, and more even in both tone and texture. Because the treatment stimulates collagen production, it will continue to heal with increased collagen production for 3-6 months post-treatment. Results vary, but it is typically advised to do 3-5 ResurFX treatments to achieve optimal results. These can be done in 4-6 week intervals.
ResurFX uses a fiber laser combined with CoolScan advanced scanner that enables your laser technician to choose from 600 combinations of shape, size, and density to ensure optimal treatment and results. The ResurFX handpiece is also equipped with continuous contact cooling, to increase patient comfort during treatment.

Yes, but you will not notice the tightening immediately after receiving the laser treatment. Because ResurFX stimulates collagen production in your skin, you will notice a tightening effect as the areas heal.
The results of ResurFX may last up to two years. It’s important to remember to take care of your skin as you normally would. This means avoiding excessive sun exposure (which can be difficult in Scottsdale!), remembering to wear sunscreen, and caring for your skin by eating a healthy diet and getting enough rest.
ReSurFX Laser treatments use a fractional laser to heat up the deepest layers of your skin that normal skincare regimens cannot. This stimulates collagen production, which is one of the components of maintaining a youthful appearance — and also a component we lose as we age.
Yes, and it is a great option for those who want maximum benefit from a non-invasive treatment. Receiving a course of these treatments (as determined by your doctor’s assessment of your skin condition) can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, enlarged pores, and acne scars.
Because you are being asked to sit under intense heat, your skin may feel warm to the touch and irritated as if you had a sunburn. The next few days may feel similar to sun exposure as well: Your skin may flake, peel, and feel dry. It’s important to take care of your skin per your doctors’ orders during this sensitive time, and remember that this is very temporary!
You will come to your medical provider’s office for a half-hour to hour-long session. You may be provided with a topical anesthetic on your facial skin to prepare it for the mildly irritating effects of the laser. The laser will be applied to your skin in the areas that you and your doctor planned to target at your consultation.
Patients usually experience healing within a few days to a week. Some lucky patients report their skin feeling better within two days. Those who take good care of their skin during the healing phase may not notice as many uncomfortable effects after undergoing laser treatment.
Like most fractionated laser treatments, ResurFX is an affordable option that costs most patients about $300-$400 per session. The total cost will depend on the condition of your skin as well as what you are treating.
