ResurFX uses a 1565 nm fiber laser and the company's CoolScan scanner technology, which enables a homogeneous, uniform pattern of coagulation columns in one pass to help protect the patient's skin, the company claims. The scanner also allows a choice between more than 600 combinations of shape, size, and density, A proprietary algorithm places each fractional spot in a controlled, non-sequential manner, allowing the tissue to relax between pulses and providing protection from overheating.

ResurFX will be one of of the company's products featured at the 5-Continent Congress (5CC), which will take place from September 18-21, 2013, in Cannes, France.
