New and Improved Fraxel
The advantages are:
* more energy -> more effective treatments.
* less painful treatments because there is less microscopic heat damage to skin tissue.
* less risk of hyperpigmentation and other side effects because the treatments are more precise.
More effective, safer and less painful treatments means that we will have better results for difficult to treat conditions like acne scars and fine lines. The other advantage is that patients will not need as many sessions to achieve the results they desire!
I attended a Cosmetic Dermatology conference at the beginning of November where the results from the upgraded Fraxel were demonstrated. It was very impressive.
We have treated about 10 patients so far with the new device and I have had nothing but encouraging feedback from Natalie and the other nurses using the machine, as well from the patients undergoing the treatments.
Hooray for progress!
