Non-Ablative Fractionated Laser (ResurfX)
Non-ablative fractionated laser, also called ResurfX, is a non-invasive laser therapy that penetrates deep layers of the skin to induce collagen remodelling. This improves skin texture by reducing the appearance of fine lines, pores, scars and stretch marks. It is suitable for the lines around the mouth and eyes, neck, chest and other body areas. Our Resurfx laser is especially useful to treat acne and surgical scars, stretch marks and for general skin rejuvenation. Resurfx is a powerful medical laser, and is used in the Concord burns unit, to improve scars from severe burns.
Non ablative Fractionated Laser treatments have less downtime compared to traditional fractionated treatments and most people return to work after a few days - perfect for a Thursday or Friday treatment.
