Valley Lee, MD (PRWEB) November 9, 2009
NBC’s Today Show featured a return of the Berns Triplets and their physician, Dr. Jill Waibel on Friday Nov. 6th 2009, The segment followed up with Chandra, Jordan and Trae Berns after their first appearance on the Today Show on May 28th 2009 in which they were interviewed by Matt Lauer regarding their treatments by Dr. Jill Waibel of Miami, FL with Lumenis’ UltraPulse TotalFX laser.
The return segment, which aired Friday, November 6th, clearly showed viewers the dramatic improvement in the burn scars of all three sisters – scars which were inflicted upon them in an arson fire as infants. After twenty years of seeking treatment, they have found hope with Dr. Jill Waibel and Lumenis’ UltraPulse TotalFX system. Their remarkable results have inspired many other people with burn scars around the world to seek out Dr. Waibel and the TotalFX treatment to help them with their own scars.
“Chandra, Jordan and Trae have all shown considerable improvement in their scars after treatments using Lumenis’ TotalFX”, commented Dr. Waibel. “Because of their amazing progress, word has spread and I’ve treated over a hundred other burn patients in my practice alone. We are quickly advancing our knowledge on the science behind burn scars and the best solution for treatment”. Dr. Waibel is now a frequent guest lecturer on burn scar treatments at many physician societies and has quickly established herself as the physician’s resource for scar revision.
“It’s important that we continue to learn and explore the best possible solutions for these types of treatments” cautioned Dr. Waibel. “Not all lasers are alike, and although other lasers may be indicated for scar revision, my treatment of choice is the TotalFX.” The TotalFX treatment is powered by Lumenis’ UltraPulse CO2 laser and the UltraPulse is the only laser available that delivers energy in the patented UltraPulse mode.
Lumenis pioneered skin resurfacing over 18 years ago with its C02 lasers. The Lumenis UltraPulse laser system has FDA clearance for more than 34 indications and is referenced in excess of 90 peer-reviewed publications.
