Shedding light on ResurFX™

Dr. Gurley is an aesthetic surgeon who specializes in non-surgical facial rejuvenation to promote fresh, unblemished skin with an array of different techniques. Using everything from targeted chemicals to special devices to remove damaged skin cells and bring new cells to the surface. ResurFX™ uses advanced technology to resurface the skin, turning over dead cells for new healthy cells. In doing so, patients notice improvements in the appearance of sun damage, such as brown spots, wrinkles, fine lines, melasma, stretch marks, and some scars. 

Due to the design of the ResurFX™ laser system, it presents a low-risk and minimal downtime alternative to more aggressive ablative (“wounding”) laser systems. In fact, ResurFX™ is all the buzz right now with the natural glowing results obtainable with little to no downtime. This unique skin laser is characterized as a “non-ablative” fractional laser. As the device is aimed at the treatment site, the laser beam targets only a fraction of the skin at a time. This ensures precise treatment while leaving surrounding areas untouched and intact, supporting the safest experience. Side effects are minimal, and sequential treatments are recommended for the best results. We suggest starting with a package of three, spaced out monthly.

What to expect

The ResurFX™ platform is customizable for every individual. Dr. Gurley will diagnose your skin’s condition and develop a treatment plan to achieve optimal results. The highly-skilled Dr. The Gurley team, including an expert certified esthetician and a registered nurse, will determine the settings that align with the prescribed treatment and adjust the depth of penetration as necessary to improve these concerns. Such customization also helps to support a comfortable, safe, and pleasant experience.

Generally, a topical anesthetic is applied to the targeted tissues. You should be comfortable as the handpiece is expertly passed over the treatment zones. The system features a built-in cooling system to aid in the well-tolerated therapy. Most patients simply describe the treatment as a temporary sensation of warmth. The device itself produces controlled and therapeutic injuries leaving you feeling invigorated during the process. Collagen and elastin are renewed as the healing process is stimulated to close the wounds made by the laser. It is this renewal that offers changes you can both see and feel after receiving this treatment.

Resurface without the risk!

Typically, such treatment is associated with minimal downtime, and side effects are limited to swelling, red irritation and sensitivity. As true partners in your skin health, the office of Dr. Judith Gurley Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa will advise you on ways to manage any side effects or discomfort and protect your post-treatment, photosensitive skin. Our office will further support your healing by recommending Gurley Glow® medical grade, safe skincare products to calm, soothe and protect your skin during this renewal process.

While you will likely notice improved clarity, softness, and tone after a single treatment session at our office in Chesterfield, results ramp up after 2-3 sessions and as collagen and elastin are produced. By taking good care of the skin and following up as advised, our patients in the St. Louis, MO area and beyond can enjoy their lovely results for up to two years!
