About ResurFX™ treatments in Victoria.
Looking to refresh your complexion? Look no further than ResurFX™ by Lumenis®, a state-of-the-art non-ablative, fractional laser resurfacing technology. ResurFX™ stimulates the production of collagen in the deep layers of the skin to address issues including fine lines and wrinkles, texture and tone, discolouration, scarring, and overall skin appearance. This unique technology enables Cosmedica to offer Victoria and Vancouver Island patients a safe and comfortable treatment to achieve healthier, more radiant skin with minimal downtime.
ResurFX™ helps with:
- brown spots
- skin texture & tone
- sun damage
- wrinkles & fine lines
How it works:
ResurFX™ is non-ablative, meaning it does not open the skin, and fractional, which refers to a process of breaking up a laser beam into hundreds of ‘micro’ beams. The skin is completely treated through a fractional approach, leaving surrounding tissues completely unharmed to expedite healing and maximize safety. What’s more, only one pass over the skin is required to produce effective results, which reduces treatment time. ResurFX™ works to stimulate the production of new collagen and remove sun damage, resulting in more even and youthful-looking skin. While some redness, swelling, and minor irritation (similar to the effects of a sunburn) may be experienced immediately following treatment, these effects typically subside within a few days, allowing for a short and relatively comfortable recovery. Most patients are able to resume their daily activities the very same day.

ResurFX™ Frequently Asked Questions
You may experience a warm or prickling sensation as the laser is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel uncomfortable. The sapphire laser tip is actively cooled and while directly applied to the skin, helps both for safety and to minimize discomfort. Topical anesthetic can also be helpful.
Results are normally visible after the first treatment but a series of 3 – 5 treatments is recommended to help achieve optimal outcomes. You will continue to see improvements for up to six months following treatment.
Your skin will appear healthier, more radiant and youthful. You can expect to see evened pigmentation, smoothing of scars, softening of wrinkles and fine lines, improved skin tone and texture, refined pores and firmer skin.
Recovery time is short and relatively comfortable. Immediately following treatment, redness, swelling, and minor irritation similar to a mild sunburn may develop, but these effects typically subside in just a few days. Patients can often return to their normal activities the same day.
Sun exposure before and after treatment should be avoided and a sunscreen with SPF of 30 or higher should be worn daily in the days after the procedure. Once completely healed, we recommend avoiding the sun at peak times and wearing protective clothing. Applying an antioxidant serum in combination with a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, rain or shine, are also key steps to ensure your results are maintained.
