M22 ResurFx FAQs

If you have fine lines developing around your eyes, cheeks, forehead, neck, and mouth, laser resurfacing can soften these wrinkles substantially. Depending on whether an ablative or non-ablative laser is used and the settings chosen, the wrinkles can reduce substantially with one treatment. Laser resurfacing has advanced is recent years using fractional technology. Now only a portion of the skin receives the energy, sparing islands of normal skin around the treated area, allowing for quicker recovery and safer results. At Rodgers Dermatology Associates, we take a global approach to your skin rejuvenation. Many times we will combine resurfacing technology with fillers, botox, and tightening procedures to maximize your natural looking results. Too many times, botox and fillers are over done because providers chase these fine wrinkles with injectables. You can avoid this over-done look by using resurfacing to stimulate your own collagen.

Preferably, come to your appointment with clean, dry skin. Avoid using your retinols for 3 days. Tell your doctor if you have a history of cold sores so prophylactic Valtrex can be prescribed. Avoid tanning before or after the laser procedure in order to minimize the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (unwanted darkening of the skin after the laser procedure). Cessation of smoking can aid in quicker healing. Tell your doctor if you have been on accutane in the last 6 months or have a history of keloids or sun-sensitivity disorders like lupus.

You can expect up to 24 hours of mild redness and swelling. You may have a fine rough texture to the skin for 1-2 days. You can apply make-up the following day of the procedure. Please also begin application of a broad spectrum SPF of 30 or higher on the day following the procedure. Sun should be avoided before and after treatments by 4-6 weeks when doing laser procedures.
