Focus on Fraxel

Image

This week our specials are focused on Fraxel!  Fraxel restore is the original Fraxel laser product, a fractionated Erbium laser that works at 1550 nanometer wavelength. It is non-ablative, heats the skin in pixilated columns that results in collagen stimulation over time, resulting in improvement of fine to moderate lines and wrinkles, and improvement in skin pigmentation (as well as tone and texture). The older Fraxel restore required a series of treatments (4-6) separated by about 2 to 3 weeks. 

Fraxel Duallaser adds another laser to the restore laser. The new wavelength is 1927 nanometers; it is a Thulium laser (say that a few times in a row). 1927nm is very specific and effective at treating brown pigment including sun damage lentigines (sun spots), aging spots, and studies are being conducted for the treatment of melasma. In a single treatment, remarkable clearance of pigment occurs within 7 to 10 days. The treatment is very tolerable and the face as well as the entire body can be treated. Unlike IPL treatments, usually 1 to 2 treatments are all that are necessary for fresh rosy skin.

Patients also like the comfort, quickness, and uniform application of the laser. Another advantage of the Dual is that the two laser treatments can be combined at the same treatment session for those patients who desire a deeper treatment for collagen stimulation along with eradication of brown spots.

We believe that Fraxel restore Dual will be a very popular treatment in our office in 2013! The big question is how long will the results last? That will depend on the individual patient, their sun protection habits (including clothing, hats, physical sun block, etc.), and in fluctuation of hormone levels.

A full face Fraxel Dual laser treatment is regularly $850.  If purchased this week (1/14-1/18) receive $200 off!  For additional questions or to set up your complimentary consultation please call 919.785.1220 or email info@drgmdavis.com.

Minimizing scars

I get asked on a daily basis what to use to treat not only surgical scars, but older scars.  We have been hearing lots of amazing information on 2 treatments lately that we wanted to explore; IS Clinical Super Serum & Fraxel.  IS Super Serum is clinically proven to reduce hypertrophic scar tissue when used 2x daily. We have found it to be extremely beneficial when used on the face and provides the same repair when used on scars on the body.  This serum can be used beginning 4 weeks after your surgery.

Then we started wondering how to boost those results with an in-office treatment for maximum results.  A monumental breakthrough came only recently when the FDA cleared Fraxel® Laser Treatment for scars. Studies showed that the new laser could be far more effective than traditional therapies at both removing damaged tissue and inducing the formation of new collagen. 

With all of this super scar fighting material on our hands – how could we not share?  The only thing we had been suggesting in the past was ScarGuard – with mixed results.  Davis Plastic Surgery is now happy to offer our patients an alternative for scar aftercare.  Our Scar Minimizing Packageincludes one bottle of IS Clinical Super Serum (retail $120) and 5 Fraxel treatments to your scar area for $300.  We suggest beginning this treatment 4 weeks after surgery to get best results.  We are also seeing results on older scars as well!

Follow us as we will be posting before & after pictures of scars shortly.
