Mary Lee Amerian M.D., Laser and Cosmetic Dermatologist and Director of the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, is one of the first dermatologists in Southern California to obtain the FRAXELÂ laser. The laser has been FDA approved for treatment of wrinkles around the eyes and treatment of age spots, sun spots, and sun damaged skin. Dr. Amerian is using the FRAXELÂ laser for full facial skin resurfacing without significant downtime. ÂWe are excited about the FRAXELÂ laser treatment option,Â says Dr. Amerian.
ÂItÂs important to embrace new technologies for advanced skin care treatments,Â says George Anterasian M.D., Practice Associate and Laser Expert. ÂThe FRAXELÂ SR Laser is the only laser made today that utilizes a new technology called Fractional Resurfacing.Â Fractional Resurfacing Technology produces the desired results by treating a fraction of the skinÂs surface at a time. During the treatment, a series of microscopic closely spaced laser spots are delivered to the skin while simultaneously preserving normal healthy skin between the laser spots. This preservation of healthy skin results in rapid healing following the laser treatment.
The entire face can be treated with the laser in approximately 30 minutes. Clinical studies suggest that an effective treatment plan is 3 to 5 sessions, spaced one to two weeks apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with the optimal cosmetic improvement usually visible in 3-6 months.
Treatments with the FRAXELÂ SR laser have no significant recovery downtime. ÂThere is no need for pain medicine after the treatment, because any discomfort is minimal,Â says Dr Amerian. ÂThe skin may have a pinkish tone for a few days, which is a normal sign that the skin is healing.Â Patients can go back to work immediately after their treatment or the following day.
Patients are invited to call 310-829-9396 to make an appointment to discuss this new facial rejuvenation treatment.
