(PRWEB) December 14, 2004
Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery announced today the addition of FraxelÂ to the procedures it offers. Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis is one of the first physicians in the country to offer the unique laser therapy that dramatically repairs fine lines and wrinkles while it improves skin texture and pigmentation Â without downtime needed for healing.
The innovative FraxelÂ SR laser is specially designed to alter only fractional volumes of the target tissue at a time. Similar to digital alteration of photographs and paintings, the effect of this treatment technique is to alter the appearance of aging and sun-damaged skin. Unlike other resurfacing options, there is no downtime required with the procedure and side effects are minimal.
Reliant Technologies, the producer of the FraxelÂ SR laser, has received FDA clearances for its laser system in dermatological procedures requiring the coagulation of soft tissue and for treatment of periorbital wrinkles and pigmented lesions, including age spots, sun spots, and skin discoloration. According to Dr. Richard E. Fitzpatrick, internationally acclaimed laser surgeon, "The results we are able to achieve in healing and repairing the skin with the FraxelÂ treatment, without causing damage, are unlike anything IÂve ever seen before."
