Laser Your Way to Better Skin with ResurFX®

Herte, Mary Better Skin with ResurFX® - Las Vegas, NVLasers have been used to rejuvenate the skin. But most of them leave the skin

with prolonged redness that is painful and inconvenient at best. Things in the

laser world have changed, however, with ResurFX® Resurfacing. Dr. Herte uses

this process to improve all the hallmarks of facial aging — blotchy pigmentation,

fine lines and wrinkles, dull crinkly skin, along with the uneven skin surface that is

the result of acne scarring.

Long a proponent of laser resurfacing — Dr. Herte has been providing fractional

laser treatments to her Las Vegas patients since the FDA first approved it — she

is excited in this newest laser technology provided by the Lumenis M22

ResurFX®. ResufFX is highly effective for all skin types and is safe enough that it

can be used on the neck and chest and other body areas.

The ResufFX® procedure

About one hour prior to your treatment, we apply a topical anesthetic to the

treatment areas. Dr. Herte recommends an oral sedation, as well, to help you

relax during the procedure and allow us to deliver the most effective treatment


Next, the ResufFX® Laser scanner is set to select a random pattern. It then

delivers laser pulses automatically over the treatment area while the handpiece is

placed over the skin. The laser delivers heat to a certain depth of the skin and

the sensation is hot and prickly (hence the local anesthetic).

Because the treatments are fractional, meaning only a percentage of your

skin is actually impacted by the laser heat, healing from each session is quick

and patients don’t experience the degree of redness or irritation common to CO2

laser resurfacing. Still, the body perceives the minute laser penetrations in the

skin as a wound and responds by delivering new skin cells to repair the wound.


After your ResurFX treatment you will likely be red and a little swollen for a few

days. You’ll also need to avoid sun exposure. But these issues will quickly pass

and your younger-looking skin will show itself.
