What Is ResurFX for Stretch Mark Reduction?
The ResurFX laser is a nonablative fractional laser stretch mark removal treatment. Its light is broken into narrow beams that go into the skin without damaging the skin’s top layer and its surrounding tissues.
The procedure will reduce stretch marks and improve the appearance of your skin after just one session. You’ll likely reach your desired results after a few more treatments.
What Is The Treatment Like?
The ResurFX Stretch Mark Reduction treatment is quick and is usually done in 15-30 minutes. It requires just one pass over each treatment area, unlike other fractional lasers with 6-8 requirements.
No need to worry about pain as the procedure is non-invasive and not painful. The laser should just feel warm against your skin with a numbing cream. Healing time is far shorter than that of other CO2 skin-resurfacing lasers, too!
The ResurFX laser treatment is safe and recommended on the neck, décolletage, and scars and stretch marks on the body.
What Does ResurFX help correct?
Stretch marks appear when your skin’s collagen and elastin are under stress. Our ResurFX Stretch Mark Reduction (usually paired with Intense Pulse Light) evens out hyperpigmentation (sun spots or melasma), smoothes wrinkles, and removes the stretch marks and acne scars.
How Much Does ResurFX Cost?
The cost of our ResurFX stretch mark reduction treatment will vary depending on the surface area, size of stretch marks, and your overall skin condition. You can book a consultation with one of our aestheticians to further discuss the details of your treatment.
North Valley Women’s Care offers financing options through CareCredit®.
What Happens After The Treatment?
Swelling can happen for the first one to two days, followed by redness and sensitivity for up to five days after treatment.
Our specialists highly recommend avoiding any harsh skincare ingredients (retinoids, physical exfoliants, acids, etc.) before and after the treatment.
You’ll also be extremely sensitive to UV rays. We advise that you avoid sun exposure for at least three months after the treatment. Be generous in applying strong sun protection daily if you’re going outside.
How Long Do Results Last?
You can expect a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your stretch marks, as well as your skin’s clarity, texture, and tone after the first treatment.
You’ll likely need multiple sessions to reach your desired results. As your skin produces new collagen, skin firming will continue for up to six months after the treatment.
Results can last up to two years as long as you maintain a good skin care routine (including a daily SPF of at least 30) and a healthy lifestyle.
