ReSurFX
in Newport Beach, CA

Signs of aging are nearly impossible to combat. They can be an excellent reminder of all the amazing memories and experiences you have been through.

But, for some, they can also mean unwanted changes in appearance, such as loose skin, shifting facial contours, wrinkles, sagging around the eyes, and more. These can cause patients to look older than they truly feel, and may even cause them to develop a listless, tired look.

Thankfully, there is no shortage of treatment options to help patients reduce the appearance of aging in the skin, and even help to slow down the process by tightening skin and boosting collagen and elastin production. Laser treatments are a popular tool used in various medical fields and procedures. In particular, laser therapy is especially popular in the world of cosmetic enhancements and non-surgical procedures. This can be an excellent solution for patients who are looking to correct cosmetic imperfections and signs of aging without invasive surgery or more in-depth procedures.

What is ReSurFX?

ReSurFX is an FDA-approved laser resurfacing treatment that uses technology sourced from previously existing (and highly praised) platforms, such as Fraxel, to help target and reduce the appearance of fine lines, furrows, wrinkles, scars, sagging, and uneven tone or texture. It stimulates the natural production of collagen within the skin, which helps improve skin laxity and delivers a youthful result.

Who is a Good Candidate for ReSurFX?

ReSurFX is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment option for treating signs of aging and uneven skin texture, tone, and similar cosmetic issues.

The procedure is an excellent option for patients who are looking to avoid or cannot medically undergo plastic surgery. In many cases, it can be used in conjunction with other cosmetic enhancements to help achieve the best possible result.

Ideal candidates include men and women in good general health who have realistic expectations for the procedure and wish to achieve a more visibly youthful appearance. ReSurFX is not recommended for patients who are pregnant, have used Accutane within six months, or have experienced extreme sun exposure.

What are the Benefits of ReSurFX Treatments?

ReSurFX is a laser therapy option that has proven benefits for treating signs of aging by increasing collagen production and tightening skin in the target area. Benefits of the procedure include:

  • Reduced appearance of crow’s feet, wrinkling in the forehead, and marionette lines
  • Can help tighten loose, sagging skin around cheeks, mid-face, or jawline
  • Stimulates the natural production of fortifying proteins, like collagen and elastin
  • Minimally painful
  • Fast application
  • No downtime required
  • Immediate results (which improve over time)

Can ReSurFX Be Combined With Other Procedures?

Absolutely! On its own, the ReSurFX procedure can offer incredible results to those seeking to enhance and rejuvenate their appearance.

In many cases, combining treatments like ReSurFX and soft facial fillers can be an excellent way to achieve the best possible results. At the Bonakdar Aesthetics, we work closely with all of our patients to understand their unique cosmetic goals and we offer our best advice on how they can achieve the look they desire.

How Long Does the Procedure Take?

The procedure and application of the ReSurFX procedure generally varies based on the area being treated and the extent of treatment being provided. In most cases, the procedure takes around 30 minutes to one hour.

How Should I Prepare for ReSurFX?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Bonakdar will determine if you need any type of pretreatment skincare before undergoing ReSurFX treatments. Patients are advised not to wear make-up on the day of their treatments and remember to apply plenty of sunscreen after the treatment. To prepare for the actual application, a topical numbing cream is applied to the area.

When Will I See Results?

After your procedure, you should see a visible improvement in your skin. This will continue to develop over time as collagen production is stimulated and new elastin and fibers are built within your skin cells.

You’ll see greater improvements with more procedures. Treatments are recommended every three to four weeks until you see the desired results. From there, you can expect them to last up to two years with proper skin maintenance and care.
