La Jolla, CA (PRWEB) March 8, 2008
Hundreds of men and women from San Diego and other Southern California communities have chosen Fraxel® laser at La Jolla Dermatology, with the number continuing to grow every day. This minimal downtime laser skin care treatment is helping people in the San Diego area turn back the clock and restore their skin tone and texture.
Fraxel is an innovative laser technology that transmits energy into the deeper layers of skin without damaging surface skin. This laser energy rejuvenates the deeper skin tissue, gradually and safely erasing the signs of aged and sun damaged skin. The treatment, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), improves the appearance of lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other skin imperfections, in some cases eliminating blemishes altogether. It also stimulates the body to create new collagen, helping skin look younger and healthier.
"My patients are extremely excited about Fraxel, and for good reason," says Dr. Susan Stuart, a San Diego dermatologist and founder and medical director of La Jolla Dermatology. "It's one of the best skin care options for San Diego residents. Not only is dramatic skin rejuvenation possible, but Fraxel is effective for a wide variety of skin types and colors. Plus, it can be used safely on any area of the body, meaning that everyone can see improved skin appearance."
Older skin rejuvenation methods caused damage to surface layers of skin, requiring patients to wear cover-up makeup and be out of commission for several days as their skin healed. But with Fraxel, patients are able to restore their skin without disrupting the outermost skin layer. An improved appearance is gradually revealed as the treated, deeper layers of skin are brought to the surface through the body's natural skin rejuvenation process.
"My patients can have a laser treatment in the afternoon and then return to work or their other activities the next day," says Dr. Stuart. "It really is that flexible, with almost no downtime. You won't have to hide out in your house or avoid social outings in San Diego just to reach your skin care goals."
At La Jolla Dermatology, Fraxel laser treatments are administered in a state of the art facility by Dr. Stuart. Most treatment sessions last about 30 minutes, with an additional 60 minutes needed to let the numbing cream take effect for maximum patient comfort during the procedure. Some people need more than one treatment to achieve their desired results. Treated skin will appear slightly red for a few hours after treatment, and over the next two weeks, firmer and more radiant skin will begin to appear.
"The Fraxel laser restores a youthful skin appearance gently and safely," adds Dr. Stuart. "By targeting only the damaged skin cells deep beneath your skin's surface, the laser encourages the formation of healthier, younger looking skin. With anywhere from 4 to 8 treatments spaced about a month apart, my patients can enjoy dramatically refreshed and reinvigorated skin tone."
