Latest Laser Treatment for Neck, Chest & Face Repairs Sun Damaged Skin

The New York Times reported on April 14, 2005 that Fraxel Laser Treatments “promise gentler repairs for damaged skin” and offer “less injury and less downtime compared with a traditional laser peel.” Portland’s Key Laser Institute has been performing Fraxel treatments since September 2004 as one of the first sites for Reliant Technologies, the manufacturer of the Fraxel Laser.

“This is the most powerful tool we have for sun aging treatment of lines, wrinkles and sun spots,” said Dr. Douglas Key, founder of Key Laser Institute. “We have treated over 200 patients and seen dramatic results in reducing the signs of sun aging. Skin tightening is also a hidden benefit of Fraxel.” Dr. Key recently spoke about the safe and effective use of Fraxel to medical professionals at the American Society of Laser Medicine & Surgery (ASLMS) in Orlando, FL. presenting data on treating the neck and chest with Fraxel. “Previously we had no effective way to treat lines and wrinkles of the neck and chest, this is an exciting new breakthrough,” reported Dr. Key.

Fraxel Laser Treatment represents a whole new method of skin repair. It rebuilds damaged skin pixel by pixel, spot by spot. “Think of your skin as a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch-up. A photo is digitally altered, pixel-by-pixel. That’s the scientific principle behind Fraxel Laser Treatment. And the results are virtually instantaneous,” said Dr. Key
