At DERMATOLOGIKUM BERLIN, a new laser for skin rejuvenation and the improvement of the complexion of the skin is available: the ResurFX by Lumenis.
It is a 1565 nm fibre laser that works by fractioning and not by ablation. The light energy of the ResurFX works under the skin and leads to the regeneration of collagen and elastin fibres.
The ResurFX can smooth out small wrinkles, mildly facelift the skin, reduce or partly remove pigmentation, improve stretch marks and make scars appear less visible.
While the treatment of noticeable scars used to be accompanied by redness, crusts and mild bleeding (fractional, ablative laser), the ResurFX can treat the skin without harming the upper skin layer. Especially for scars in the face or the lower arms, this is a substantial progress.
Regarding aesthetics, a gentle lifting of the skin can be achieved without much lost time. Side effects usually are only short-term mild redness and a light swelling. It is recommended to do three sessions in four-week intervals to obtain optimal results.
The ResurFX can be used on its own (like described above) or in combination with other systems.
The Lumenis photo fractional treatment, for instance, is a combination of the ResurFX laser and an IPL (intense pulsed light). This technique is unique in its improvement of aging/sun spots and freckles as well as stretch marks. Its effectiveness was proven in clinical studies.
By combining the ResurFX with IPL, also small wrinkles and skin pigmentations in the face can be treated. The IPL affects the unwanted pigmentation and fine blood vessels in the skin while the ResurFX stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin fibres in the deeper layers of the skin and has a mild lifting effect. Optimal results are being achieved after 3 to 4 sessions.
