Dr. Liu has helped thousands of individuals achieve their cosmetic goals and discover renewed confidence.
ResurFX™is an FDA-approved, non-ablative fractional laser used for skin rejuvenation. This state-of-the-art laser is used to improve skin texture, laxity, tone, while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. The energy from the laser stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastic fibers in the deeper layers of the skin so that you can achieve more radiant, youthful looking skin. Since ResurFX™ is a non-ablative laser, the surface of the skin is not damaged meaning that there is minimal downtime.
Based off of your unique skin analysis, Dr. Liu will customize your treatment plan to achieve the best results. ResurFX™ is ideally suited to improve the following skin conditions:
Both ResurFX™ and IPL can be performed in the same session for a revolutionary photo-fractional skin treatment. By combining these two powerful technologies, pigment and vascular conditions as well as skin resurfacing can be performed all in the same visit.
Dr. Liu performs all of the ResurFX™ treatments herself (not a nurse or aesthetician). Since Dr. Liu is a surgeon and an expert in anatomy, she can more accurately adjust the settings and target the right areas to achieve the best result for you.
Depending on the condition of your skin, typically 3 to 5 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart are recommended to achieve optimal results.
The total time required for a ResurFX™ treatment is typically less than an hour including the application of numbing cream prior to the laser treatment. The ResurFX™ treatment can also be combined with other procedures at the same visit.
There is very little downtime after a ResurFX™ treatment and many people can return to their normal activities the same day. You may experience some redness and swelling, which should subside in a few days and the skin may feel rough for one to two weeks after treatment. After the treatment, you will see an improvement in your skin that continues to develop over time and greater improvement is seen with each additional treatment.

The results of the ResurFX™ treatments can be maximized and extended with good skin care. We offer a complimentary consultation with our aesthetician after you have completed your treatment series to design an individualized skin care regimen. With proper skin care, you can expect your results to last up to 2 years and maintenance treatments can be performed as needed to keep your skin looking youthful.
It is difficult to provide pricing before a patient has had a consultation with Dr. Liu. The cost can vary depending on the areas treated and the number of treatments needed. Dr. Liu believes that patients should be able to speak with their physician before experiencing any out of pocket expense, which is why consultations with Dr. Liu are complimentary.
Possible side effects of treatment include swelling, redness, scarring, and change in pigmentation, all of which are usually temporary. Although ResurFX™ treatments are non-surgical procedures, improper administration increases your risk of developing potential complications (i.e. burns and scarring). Your ResurFX™ treatment should only be performed by a licensed, experienced professional.

The Botox is always natural-looking and understated. I love Dr. Liu’s bedside manner and neutrality when approached with a patient issue. She never tries to make me feel like whatever I am asking about is something I need. She only listens and counsels…no “up selling”. That is a wonderful quality in a plastic surgeon.

I don’t know that it’s changed my life, but it sure has made me feel happier about myself. My eyes were so sad and old-looking, and there was so much loose skin that it was hard to apply eye shadow. I love that they schedule appointments so that you are not left sitting in the waiting room for too long. Dr. Liu has worked on me before, and I went in thinking I needed upper eyes done, but she showed me that it was actually the sagging forehead and brow that was causing me to have a tired and unhappy look. She thought I could just get the brow lift done and would be happy with that procedure alone, but I went ahead and got eyelids done, too since they would probably need it soon anyway.Everyone at the office was helpful, happy, and always available to answer any questions I had. Everyone I dealt with was upbeat and made me feel welcome and very comfortable. Dr. Liu is a real magician with her scalpel, yet has a very kind, unassuming demeanor. I have total confidence in Dr. Liu, and will continue to have her do all of my facial work!
